Thank you for your interest in becoming a Trustee of the Museum of Cambridge.

We are currently looking for a Treasurer to join our Board of Trustees and this recruitment pack will provide you with a brief introduction to the role, 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.
The Museum is currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will remain closed until further notice, following government advice. But the team are actively working behind the scenes planning for the future and continuing to engage our local community.

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

The Treasurer is an ordinary trustee like any other, with the same responsibilities, but in addition, is aligned to finance. They should take responsibility for 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.

If you would like an informal discussion before making an application, please contact Louisa Trivett, Trustee by email at louisa.trivett@museumofcambridge.org.uk.
