Museum of Cambridge Treasurer Trustee

The Museum of Cambridge is recruiting for a new Treasurer to join our Board of Trustees.

Our Museum is for and about Cambridge. We are a popular visitor destination and play an important role in the local community with our innovative projects and a lively programme of events. We have recently made some major changes to our governance and management, and our priorities over the coming years are to re-present our collections, develop our fundraising capacity to become self-sustaining, and continue to implement robust management systems.

The Treasurer is an ordinary trustee like any other, with the same responsibilities, but in addition, is aligned to finance. They should lead the strategic side of finance. This is an opportunity to use your knowledge and experience to help us shape the future of a unique museum at the heart of an eclectic city.

The Museum has been awarded funding from NHLF for a 2 year project; Museum Making. This has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and now starts in November 2020. It will give the Museum additional staff and resources to take us towards our goal of a sustainable museum, by increasing our outreach, admissions and developing interpretation and access to our collections.

A number of new Trustees have been appointed since 2018 and there is a positive momentum for change at the Museum. The Trust Board normally meet a minimum of six times per year to set and review our strategic and business objectives, although currently we meet monthly. Trustees also engage with sub-groups providing support and advice in their areas of expertise.

We are looking for Trustees who are willing to be actively involved in the Museum’s development. The role of Trustee is voluntary and non-executive, providing a rewarding opportunity to use your expertise and experience to support and help shape our future.

Applications welcome now and will be assessed as they are submitted.
