Trustees

Apply before 12pm on Tuesday 26 October

We are looking to appoint a number of new trustees to our Board, as four of our current trustees reach the end of their term.

These voluntary trustee positions are an opportunity to play a key role in the next stage of Middle Child’s journey, as we bounce back from a pandemic that has brought into sharper focus than ever before the fight for equality and the importance of the arts. This will be at the heart of our next application to continue as an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation.

We are especially keen to hear from people from backgrounds or characteristics underrepresented in the arts and on theatre boards. We encourage those who are uncertain if they are suitable or qualified to talk to us regardless. We recognise potential and take pride in giving people a platform to make a step-change in their career, and in their personal development.

We are a family-friendly working environment

Middle Child are a PiPA (Parents and Carers in Performing Arts) Charter Partner, striving towards creating a more family-friendly working environment. 

PiPA campaigns to enable and empower parents, carers and employers to achieve sustainable change in attitudes and practices in order to attract, support and retain a more diverse and flexible workforce. We are always happy to discuss solutions that allow people to balance their caring responsibilities with their working lives, for example through job shares or flexible working arrangements as appropriate.

As part of our belief in the value of long-standing creative relationships, we will endeavour where possible to put in place family-friendly practices for all our employees in order to enable those with caring responsibilities to maintain their practice. Middle Child’s artists, in return, will agree to work with us to ensure measures are in place to allow them to fulfil their role to the best of their ability. 

We ask everyone that we work with if they have any caring responsibilities during the period they are working for us, so that we can support and make adjustments as necessary.
