Callout for Trustees & Treasurer

Award-winning performance company, Curious Seed, was formed in 2005 by Scottish choreographer, Christine Devaney. Based in Edinburgh, we produce dance theatre work that questions the world we live in; work which touches and moves people, unlocking new ways of experiencing and feeling something different about the world. Our work has been presented across the globe from Milan to Macao, New Zealand to Norway, appearing at prestigious international festivals and venues from Sadler’s Wells to Sydney Opera House. Since 2015, Curious Seed has been a Creative Scotland Regularly Funded Organisation.

We are now seeking 3 Trustees to strengthen our existing board and to replace Trustees who are due to retire (including the role of Treasurer). We are especially, but not exclusively, interested in people who bring knowledge of one or more of the following areas:

  • Organisational Development
  • Legal / HR
  • Fundraising
  • Working with Children & Young People
  • Equalities / Access
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Community Activism

For the role of Treasurer, we are interested in people who bring knowledge of:

  • Finance / Charity Accounting

Trustees attend four Board meetings each year as well as an annual Strategy Day. There are additional opportunities to support via working groups and ad-hoc projects.

No previous Board experience is necessary. You will be supported by our current Trustees through an induction and matching you with an existing Trustee as a ‘buddy’.

If you are interested but have questions about what is involved, we invite you to join us in an online Q&A session on Fri 9th June at 13:00. Please register your interest in the session by emailing Leigh Robieson-Cleaver at producer@curious-seed.co.uk. If you are unable to make this date, we are happy to have informal conversations with any potential candidates – please get in touch.

We particularly encourage applications from those who have been or are historically underrepresented on boards due to age, disability, ethnicity, faith or belief, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, education, socio-economic background, or those with caring responsibilities. Candidates who may not think they fit the typical criteria required for Board membership, but who are inspired to contribute to our work, are warmly encouraged to apply.

If you require this information in a different format, or if you have any other access needs, please get in touch.
