About Craft Scotland
Since our launch in 2008 as the world’s first audience development agency for craft, we have worked to build the foundations for a national organisation which celebrates craft in all its forms.
This means that we employ the three principles of audience development in our work - marketing & communications, research & intelligence, and engagement & participation – to create opportunities for people to visit, see, make, buy, experience, collect and enjoy Scottish craft.
Our website (www.craftscotland.org) serves as the largest what’s on guide for Scottish craft in the world, we are currently working on two major presentations of craft in the USA (Chicago and New York), and we are work with a diverse range of partners including Fife Contemporary Art and Craft, Manchester Craft and Design Centre and Young Scot.
We are about to embark on the next stage of our development with a number of initiatives to generate income and security for our charity and the Scottish craft sector.
We are looking for experienced and passionate people to join our Board as we progress into this next phase.
We are currently recruiting for up to three positions on the Craft Scotland Board of Directors. Candidates with experience within the craft sector are encouraged to apply. This includes makers, curators, marketeers, lecturers and directors. We are also seeking people with financial and legal backgrounds.
The role of the Craft Scotland Board is primarily one of strategic direction and governance. The Board ensures the delivery of all aspects of our service and policy implementation, whilst supporting the Chief Executive in achieving the organisation’s vision and purpose. Therefore all applicants must be committed to the strategic development of Craft Scotland.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community and are committed to creating a diverse team.
This is a non-remunerated role (out of pocket expenses only). Meetings are held bi-monthly in Leith, Edinburgh.
Applications should consist of a CV and a covering letter explaining your relevant experience and why a Board position at Craft Scotland interests you.
All applications should be received by no later than 5pm on Friday 06 July 2012.
For more information please contact Emma Walker, Chief Executive on 0131 466 3871 (direct line) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
