Vacancy Description

Trustee of The Brangwyn Trust, The William Morris Gallery

The William Morris Gallery is owned and operated by Waltham Forest Council.  The Gallery is a significant cultural venue in Waltham Forest, working with local artists and London partners to create high-quality exhibitions and programmes for local residents and visitors from further afield.   The gallery is now looking to reshape its offer and build on the impact and learning from the Mayor’s first London Borough of Culture in 2019.   This is now even more essential due to the on-going impacts, restrictions and emerging opportunities brought about by the COVID 19 pandemic.


The board of Trustees of the Brangwyn Trust act in an advisory capacity to Waltham Forest Council, in relation to the safe custody and guardianship of the Brangwyn collection housed in the William Morris Gallery. Waltham Forest Council is looking to recruit a new trustee as they develop the board for the future, and is in particular, seeking a trustee who can bring art collections expertise and who can support good governance arrangements for the Trust.


Waltham Forest Council welcomes applications from the widest possible range of people and keen to encourage interest from candidates from a BAME background, and from those representing the younger voice.


More information about the trustee position and how to apply is set out in the recruitment pack at Weblink here


Deadline 2 August

Interviews are scheduled for Tuesday 1 September.
