Recruitment: Trustees to Board

November Club is looking to recruit two Trustees to join the Board. 

November Club is a small, but ambitious organisation led by Artistic Director, Cinzia Hardy. The organisation is interested in hearing from experienced and enthusiastic individuals with a range of skills and experience. You will be passionate about the arts and the positive impact they can make to our lives, especially in a predominantly rural area such as Northumberland, where much of the work takes place.

Fiona Standfield, Chair of the Board said “You will be joining an established and committed board of Trustees at an exciting time, helping to shape the organisation’s strategy and direction. We value diversity of perspective and no previous experience in a Board position is required.”

Cinzia Hardy, Artistic Director at November Club said “November Club is an award-winning organisation with ambitious plans, and our enhanced staff structure is beginning to take shape. New productions and projects are in the planning including a return to Newcastle’s Literary and Philosophical Society, where November Club began, for a large-scale promenade production in late 2019”.
