Become a Trustee

An exciting opportunity to play an important role within a leading arts charity by applying your existing skills in a new and exciting context.

Settle Stories Trustees play a vital role in the organisation, steering and supporting its development. There are lots of benefits to becoming a trustee, including enhancing your CV, building social and professional connections and the challenge of being involved in something completely new.  As a Settle Stories Trustee you will gain satisfaction from knowing that you will be helping to improve the lives of local communities in the Yorkshire Dales by increasing opportunities for them to engage in the very best arts, culture and stories on offer.

Settle Stories is now looking to recruit three new Trustees to compliment the skills of our existing board and take the place of Trustees who are stepping down after completing a full-term in office.

Applications are welcome from a wide range of individuals who share our passion for stories and the arts and have a broad appreciation of the valuable role of the arts, culture, creativity and heritage play in the lives of our communities.

We are particularly keen to develop a board which reflects the diversity of the people of the Yorkshire area and to hear from people who have particular expertise in: Legal, Performing Arts and Digital Media together with strong skills in strategic and analytical thinking, influencing and communication. 

Board meetings are held four times a year at our office in Settle.  In additions to this, there may be occasional meetings of specific task groups.
