Volunteer Director / Trustee Vacancies

Are you looking for an exciting challenge and the opportunity to contribute to a Charity that is just a little bit different?

Owned and operated by the Tramway Museum Society, Crich Tramway Village is the home of the National Tramway Museum, an Accredited Museum with a nationally Designated collection. We welcome more than 100,000 unique visitors for a ‘great day out’ every year.

The Society is an educational charity and receives no regular core funding from government or local authority sources and is self-sustainable. We have a dedicated team of employed and volunteer operational staff.

The role of Director/Trustee is both voluntary and non-executive, providing a rewarding opportunity to use expertise and experience to support and help shape our future.

The Society is currently seeking to recruit up to three new volunteer Director/Trustees to join our Board. We are looking for people with enthusiasm and commitment who are willing to join our dynamic Board team and be actively involved in the Museum’s development.

In this round of Director/Trustee recruitment, we are particularly looking for people with skills in:

  • audience development
  • tourism
  • commercial enterprise.

The Board meets approximately eight times per year to set and review our strategic business objectives, although currently we meet monthly by ‘zoom’. Directors/Trustees also take part in sub-committees providing support and advice in their areas of expertise.
