Help us build and strengthen our board!

Trustee / Committee volunteers needed for Rising Sun Arts Centre in RG1

Could you help us build and strengthen our board?

We are looking to appoint additional trustees to help build our Board’s strength, increasing diversity and building capacity in a fast-growing organisation.

This is a demanding but highly rewarding role supporting a much-loved local Reading multi-arts venue that works to build a stronger community through participation and inclusivity in the arts.

The role will suit a patient, approachable and resilient person with an interest in the arts and dedication to supporting the organisation’s work, especially through the current challenging climate. Experience in Human Resources and promoting wellbeing will be particularly welcome but is not a necessity.

There will also be opportunities to get involved in the centre’s work, experience fun and original events, meet new people, and explore learning opportunities.

The Rising Sun Arts Centre is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment for anyone visiting or volunteering/working at the centre and all applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability or age.

Should you require any reasonable adjustments or if you have any questions regarding accessibility or similar for the premises please let us know.
