Join Craft Scotland's Board to support the development of an inspiring and creative sector.

Passionate about Scottish contemporary craft? Join Craft Scotland's Board to support the development of an inspiring and creative sector.

The Craft Scotland Board is responsible for shaping strategy, monitoring progress and ensuring robust and compliant operation. Together with the Director and senior staff we regularly review the programme, explore the wider landscape and jointly develop new strategy and plans. There are currently three Board places available, with a further two places by the end of 2022.

We are keen to welcome people who can bring fresh perspectives, are passionate about craft, creativity or design, and can help us deliver our ambitions.

We want to connect with and learn from other perspectives and networks, especially those currently under-represented on public bodies: Black, Asian, Mixed Heritage and/or a Person of Colour, refugee, d/Deaf, LGBTQIA+, under 50, or living with a disability. You wouldn't be expected to represent specific groups, but to bring your full self, life experience and unique lens.

Additionally, we are interested in connecting with candidates based across the breadth of Scotland and beyond, including professional curators, craft industry professionals and makers, and those new to Boards. We will support you to participate as a Board member whether you are based in Scotland, the UK or elsewhere.

Please visit our Careers page and download the Candidate Information Pack for full information about Craft Scotland's Board, including benefits of joining, criteria and Board roles and responsibilities.
