Associate Company Peer Productions Seeks Chairperson

September 12, 2018

Peer Productions are looking for a dynamic and ambitious Chairperson to join their pioneering charity as they grow from a successful local charity into an organisation with a national profile and international reach.

They are looking for a Chairperson to guide the charity as they continue to reach more young people and change more young lives. They are the only organisation of their kind that specialises in delivering high-quality theatre productions performed by specially trained young actors/peer educators.

Their Chairperson needs to be able to advocate for the organisation to external stakeholders, funders and patrons. The ideal candidate will appreciate that Peer Productions is an organisation that needs to remain fluid to react to both the changing needs of vulnerable young people and also to respond to new opportunities as they arise. They will have a strong understanding of risk management and organisation development. They will be joining a strong board but with room for development. They will have a varied skill set that includes finance, law, building, HR, charity governance, education and the arts. Peer Productions plan to recruit additional trustees with skills that are currently under-represented. Since the appointment of Managing Director Ed Simpson eighteen months ago, the organisation has undergone significant development laying the groundwork to enable movement from being a successful small-scale, local charity towards becoming a middle-scale charity with an emerging national profile and international reach.

Location: Peer Productions is based at South Hill Park Arts Centre, Ringmead, Bracknell, Berkshire, RG12 7PA, although Board Meetings currently take place in Guildford
Time commitment: 4 Board meetings per year. The Chair is also expected to have regular meetings with the Chief Executive, and may also represent the charity at various events and meetings with key stakeholders
Board of Trustees (Executive Committee).
Reporting to: Remuneration: The role of Chair is not accompanied by any financial remuneration
Term: The Chair will serve an initial three-year term
