Board Member – Creative Scotland

 

Creative Scotland is the public body responsible for supporting the arts, screen and creative industries across Scotland. We distribute funding from the Scottish Government and The National Lottery. We also influence attitudes, behaviours and policies that help creative people  to thrive. Our goal is to unlock potential and embrace ambition throughout Scotland’s creative community.

 

We are looking for new members to join our Board – the group responsible for overseeing and challenging the work we do. You do not need previous experience of serving on a board. With professional experience in Scotland’s creative sector, your insight could make you an ideal candidate. We particularly need people who will bring to the Board a practical knowledge of the creative sector  in Scotland, with an understanding of how Scottish arts can progress internationally. We are also looking for people with a particular knowledge or understanding of ethnic minority communities, as this will help us ensure our work reflects a diverse nation.

 

In addition to passion for the arts, we expect you to demonstrate a range of personal qualities and skills. A collaborative individual with excellent listening and communication skills, you have the confidence to challenge and debate proposals and issues in a constructive way. Comfortable considering the ‘big picture’ and thinking long-term, you are also able to balance various considerations and make informed decisions.

 

In the interests of achieving a balanced and representative Board  applications are particularly welcome  from people currently under represented on Scotland’s public bodies such as women,  disabled people and people aged under 50.
