Job Opportunity: Finance Trustee

Camden People’s Theatre (CPT) is seeking a skilled finance trustee.  You will provide financial oversight to the board as well as advice on finance-related matters.

The charity is at a significant point in its 25-year history. Having grown our operations significantly over the last 8 years, and with a transformational capital development project due to take place between Nov 2020 – Mar 2021, we are entering a new phase of business and financial modelling, which is hugely exciting. But with the huge challenge faced by the cultural sector in the wake of Covid-19, we must now be more entrepreneurial than ever. We are therefore seeking a creative and experienced trustee with an accounting background to support our activity at this pivotal time.

We are keen to hear from people with all levels of experience. If you have not acted as a trustee before and would like to find out more about what the role would entail, please contact our Chair, Isobel Colchester [email protected].
