Shobana Jeyasingh Dance is currently seeking to appoint up to three new Trustees to join the Board of Directors

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance (SJD) is currently seeking to appoint up to three new Trustees to join the Board of Directors.

We are looking for a Treasurer, a HR Lead and a general Trustee with a background that compliments SJD’s aims and ambitions.

SJD’s Board plays a central role in the company and is responsible for supporting the development of the Company and, where appropriate, scrutinising its affairs. Trustees have diverse skill sets that reflect the ambition and scope of the Company’s work, and all Trustees lend their expertise and networks to support the ambitious team at SJD. Above all else, Board Members have a passion for Shobana’s work, and are enthusiastic in helping shape the future direction and progress of the Company.

A number of existing Trustees are currently serving their final three year term, and we are looking to appoint a number of new directors to lead the company into its next phase.

Shobana’s work is constantly evolving, and the landscape for contemporary dance continues to shift and change, as well as be challenged by the continuing impacts of Covid-19. Against this backdrop, the Company is taking an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to ensuring it continues to connect with audiences new and existing, both through Shobana’s artistic programme as well as the Company’s extensive and impactful learning & participation work.

It is our hope that Trustees will bring a new set of skills to the Board to complement our existing Trustees and bring fresh perspectives and networks to the Company. We are particularly interested in hearing from potential Trustees with the following areas of sector experience: Finance, HR and Employee Relations, Digital, Contemporary Dance.

SJD celebrates diversity and inclusion. We welcome interest from all sectors and backgrounds.

Deadline for applications: Monday 9th September 10am
