Board of Trustees - up to 4 vacancies

Would you like to help secure the future of Glasgow Film Theatre for future generations?

Glasgow Film is looking for up to four new Trustees to join the current Board of 11 and the Executive team. We are looking for people who will bring a diverse range of experiences and ideas to the organisation, and who are strategic thinkers.

You may have specific professional experience; you might also consider yourself a member of the Glasgow Film community; or you might have lived experience and knowledge of our equalities work which includes autism friendly programmes for families and adults, a D/deaf friendly programme, and Movie Memories, our dementia friendly programme. We are interested in hearing from anyone who is drawn to this role and is passionate about securing the future of Glasgow Film for future generations.

All Trustees will act as champions of Glasgow Film, helping us to extend our networks and relationships, contribute at a strategic level to business planning, and most importantly help ensure that we continue to drive forward our mission of ‘Cinema For All’, making significant progress in our commitments to equalities, diversity and inclusion. 

Glasgow Film also regularly reviews the collective skills and expertise of its Board to ensure that it has the right balance to further our strategic aims. We have identified the following areas as gaps in our current shared skill set:

  • Philanthropy and/or corporate partnerships. You will have the opportunity to help shape the income strategy and advise on donor development.
  • Digital development including infrastructure, data analysis and online customer offer. You will have the opportunity to advise on our digital strategy and earned income model.
  • Human resources and staff development. You will help ensure that Glasgow Film is an excellent employer and that all staff are supported to develop and do their best work.
  • Equalities, diversity and inclusion. You will have the opportunity to support diversity staff champions to drive forward our EDI action plan and Black Lives Matter commitments.
  • Legal. You will have the opportunity to guide the Executive on general legal matters and provide support to seek expert external legal counsel where required. 

We welcome and strongly encourage applications from people who are under 30; and/or are D/deaf or disabled; and from ethnic minorities.

How to enquire

Anyone that is interested is encouraged to enquire now and have an informal chat with Allison Gardner (Chief Executive Officer), or one of our current Board members, over the phone or via Zoom/email/messenger in advance of making a formal application. This is a chance for you to discuss the reality of the role, time commitment and any access or support you might need. 

Please email Allison Gardner on to arrange.
