Trustees and Chair of the Board

Phoenix Dance Theatre, one of the UK’s leading contemporary dance companies, is looking for a number of exceptional individuals to join the board of trustees and one dynamic and experienced leader to take on the role of Chair of the Board.

Ideal candidates will have a keen interest in the arts, enjoy working in a team and be attracted by the opportunity to develop Phoenix to the next level of excellence and success.

We are currently looking for new members with broad range of skills, but we would be particularly interested to hear from individuals with experience and expertise in the following areas:

  • Financial Management
  • Major donor fundraising
  • Running an arts organisation of similar scale to Phoenix Dance Theatre
  • Marketing PR and Communications

We strive to achieve a ‘balanced’ board and we are keen to attract members from a diverse range of backgrounds.

The roles are voluntary and unpaid except for expenses to attend meetings. Phoenix is based in Leeds and Board meetings are held here quarterly.

If you would like an informal chat about either of these roles please contact Phoenix Dance Theatre and ask to speak to Lesley Jackson, Executive Director, on 0113 236 8130
