We are currently have Trustee opportunities for four new Trustees to join the DanceSyndrome family alongside an existing team of eight, and to support a brand-new Managing Director joining on 1st September 2021.
This is an exciting time to be joining DanceSyndrome where inclusivity and equality create a vibrant energised connected ‘family’. We aim to maximise our impact on a big scale. We have bold ambitions to become better known nationally, continue to transform lives, to develop our training into a marketable social franchise model, to market performances to audiences who at this time are unaware of the enormous impact that we can have, and to develop support and sponsorship through new partnerships, businesses, and individual donors.
We are currently looking for skills and expertise in Education, Law, HR and scaling our charity (including attracting new Business/Partnership opportunities and raising our profile at a National Level).
Location: Northwest with Board meetings in Manchester (September, December, March & June)
Time commitment: Attendance & contribution at four Board meetings per year and any required prep work, and the Annual General Meeting (AGM); potential engagement in strategy work and sub working groups throughout the year and occasional representation of the charity at various events with key stakeholders.
Remuneration: The role of Trustee is a volunteer role and is not accompanied by any financial remuneration, although reasonable expenses for travel may be claimed.
Reporting to the Chair of Trustees.
The DanceSyndrome family is filled with passionate and motivated people. We welcome applications from people who identify as Black, Asian, or Minority Ethnic, LGBTQIA+ and those with a disability. You do not need specific experience of dancing or working previously with people with learning disabilities, we are looking for people who believe in what we do and want to support DanceSyndrome to grow its impact and to help create a fairer, more inclusive and equitable society for everyone.
