Chair of the Board and Charity Trustees

Peter Buchan, who has been Chair of the BALTIC Board and successfully led the organisation since 2009, is due to retire from the Board in March 2018 having served the maximum term allowed. BALTIC is seeking a new Chair to lead the Board, Executive Team and organisation into and through the next critical stages of its development.

It is expected that the new Chair will have a proven and impressive track record of strategic leadership, business acumen, effective communication and representational skills, empathy and enthusiasm for BALTIC’s vision and an ability to command respect amongst regional stakeholders and national decision makers in the public and private sectors.

In addition the Trust wants to strengthen and diversify its Board-level governance with the appointment of a number of new charity trustees with a wide range of skills and experience.

The Trust is looking for individuals who have the skills and interests to help us identify and exploit new opportunities, as well as the ability to support the Director and senior management team to take BALTIC to the next stage of its development.

If you would relish such a challenge and share our commitment to building BALTIC’s contribution as a sustainable artistic, economic and social force for good on a local, national and international stage, particularly in challenging economic times, then we would be delighted to hear from you.

The roles are unpaid, although reasonable travel expenses are reimbursed.
