Chair & Trustee Opportunity 

Action Transport Theatre (ATT) is looking for a new Chair to lead the Board through the next phase of organisational growth. 

We also have space for two trustees to join our thriving and passionate team. 

ATT is a professional theatre company based at Whitby Hall in Ellesmere Port. 

We collaborate with children and young people in order to make world-class theatre, merging the playful and political and exploring new ways to tell stories. 

The charity is undergoing exciting change. We are embarking on a capital programme which will see us reach more deeply into our community, as well as amplifying the visibility of our exceptional work nationally and internationally. The current trustees are engaged and bring a range of skills and experiences. We are delighted that two of our trustees have previously been part of our participation programme. 

We are particularly keen to hear from applicants with experience of venue management and/or cultural sector leadership.  

The principle duties of Chair are to: 

  • Provide leadership and direction to the Board to ensure excellent governance is maintained 
  • Supervise and support the Artistic Director/CEO 
  • Act as a public champion on behalf of ATT 

For potential trustees, we are particularly looking for one or more of the following:  

  • A personal connection to Ellesmere Port 
  • Legal expertise 
  • Education sector experience 
  • Artistic expertise 
  • Community development experience 

Action Transport Theatre is a passionate advocate for the importance of diversity. We particularly welcome applications from people of colour, those who identify as LGBTQ+, and/or are d/Deaf or disabled. 

Expressions of Interest 

In the first instance please make contact by email with the General Manager to book an informal discussion with either the Artistic Director/CEO or an ATT trustee who can provide more information about these roles. 

You will then be invited to submit a letter of support and CV by Friday 24th January 2020. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to present to and meet the Board on Monday 10th February 2020.
