“Throughout my internship I had been given a varied workload and no two days were the same….I cannot stress enough what a wonderful experience this has been for me. Ignite Imaginations is a small organisation with a big heart and they have won my lasting admiration.”
- Intern, University of Sheffield

Could you be a trustee for Ignite Imaginations?

At Ignite Imaginations we run events and workshops all over Sheffield and the surrounding areas, using high quality visual arts, creative writing and poetry to help individuals increase their confidence, skills and sense of community. We often use creativity as a vehicle to explore a social question or theme. We strive to provide unusual, inspiring and innovative experiences for communities of all ages and backgrounds; aiming specifically at those that would not normally have the opportunity.

We are looking for 2-3 new Trustees to help govern our growing arts charity and set the strategic direction for our work. We need people with a passion for the arts who are enthusiastic and can bring skills, expertise and knowledge from different professional fields.

You will be involved in a wide range of activities including involvement in business planning, approving policy, complying with legal regulations, monitoring finances, line managing the CEO and supporting other staff via appraisals. You will be joining a well-established board, currently comprising five trustees, and supporting a staff team of five employees.
