We're Recruiting

Taking Flight Theatre are looking for new trustees to join their committed and active board.

*Closing date for applications is the 23rd Feb 2020*

Taking Flight is an inclusive theatre company based in Cardiff, making professional productions with D/deaf, disabled, blind and Visually Impaired and non- disabled performers. All our work features embedded access, such as BSL, captions and Audio Description. We’ve also just launched Wales’ only youth theatre for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing young people so it’s a really exciting time to get involved with our work!

A trustee is a person who takes care of the work of a charity, making sure it meets its charitable aims and carries out everything it does in a legal and professional way.

Trustees have meetings every few months to check on, plan and discuss the work of the charity.

A board is the name given to the group of trustees looking after a charity.

Trustees do not get paid for being trustees, but they do get expenses for any travel etc.

We currently have 7 trustees on the Taking Flight board and are looking for 4- 6 more. 

We actively encourage D/deaf and disabled applicants. Our board meetings are delivered in English and interpreted into BSL.

We are especially looking for trustees with experience in any of the following:

  • Welsh language
  • Human Resources
  • Marketing
  • Fundraising

But whoever you are and whatever your experience, the thing that’s most important is enthusiasm, energy and the desire to support and make a real difference to the work of Taking Flight as we move forward!

To apply, please contact us in way you feel most comfortable. You can send a CV, or you can write a letter, make a video or record an audio file. You can use English, BSL or Welsh.

Send it to: louise@takingflighttheatre.co.uk   If you want to ask any questions or need an alternative way to contact us, call or text 07785 947823.

We look forward to hearing from you!
