Thank you for your interest in becoming a Trustee of the Museum of Cambridge. This recruitment pack will provide you with a brief introduction to our Museum and the Trust and outlines our plans for the future.

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 family events. We are in the process of making a number of major changes to our governance and management. Our main priorities over the coming years will be to develop our fundraising capacity, continue to implement robust systems, re-present our collections and stabilise our financial position.

A number of new Trustees were appointed in November 2018 and there is a positive momentum for change at the Museum. The Trust Board will meet at the Museum a minimum of six times per year to set and review our strategic and business objectives. Trustees will also engage with the sub-groups specialising in and providing support and advice in their areas of expertise.

To help us take our Museum forward as a sustainable operation and plan our future we are therefore seeking to appoint 2-3 new Trustees to join our governing Board who can bring skills and experience of

1. Knowledge and experience of managing a building (ideally historic)

2. Experience and confidence to be the main point of contact for H&S requirements

3. Knowledge and experience in Donor/Friend Fundraising

As a Trustee of the Museum of Cambridge, you can help us to deliver our goals.

This is an unrivalled opportunity to use your knowledge and experience to help us shape the future of a unique museum at the heart of an eclectic city.
