Board Trustee

We’re currently looking for new Trustees to join our Board and support the success of our theatre. Cast is run by a skilled group of professionals and the Board oversees them, working closely with the senior management team. The Board operates on a voluntary basis, meeting regularly and bringing a range of skills, knowledge and experience to bear. In the trustee pack we’ve outlined what sort of people we’re looking for alongside more information about the role Trustees play and about Cast in general.

The main purpose of the Trustees’ role is to provide oversight, scrutiny, challenge and strategic leadership of Cast, contributing to its continuing growth. Trustees ensure that the organisation operates within the parameters of its business strategy, works towards its charitable objectives and is run in a transparent and equitable manner.

In the ten years that we’ve been operational, Cast has become a well-loved part of life in Doncaster. We work closely with our local communities in and around the City of Doncaster, and we have close partnerships and relationships with key national organisations. We want to be representative of the communities that we serve, relevant to the city and responsive to the needs and wishes of our audiences, delivering inspirational, entertaining and relevant work.

Previous experience as a Trustee is not essential so if you’re interested in our work and think that you’ve got something to offer, please do consider applying. We welcome applications from anyone inspired to give their time to this unique opportunity and are particularly keen to hear from individuals with skills or experience in the following sectors:

·       Professional performing Arts

·       Education Frontline services such as tourism, catering, hospitality

·       Fundraising and marketing

·       Business management
