Job Description

BPH is a major cultural development organisation for Bradford and the region. By carefully listening to the needs of the sector we have built a range of exciting, impactful, schemes and initiatives that support individuals and organisations develop the skills, networks, and opportunities they need to achieve their creative potential.

This is a really exciting time to join BPH – not only will you be one of the founding Board members of the new company, but you will be here to guide it through a vital period in its growth. You will support our role as Capacity Building Partner for Bradford 2025 City of Culture; developing the district’s creative talents and laying the foundation for an enduring and viable legacy to the City of Culture year.

Job Requirements

The role of Board Member, and once the organisation reaches charity status, Trustee, is an unpaid, voluntary position. Trustees are appointed for a period of 3 years renewable for a further three by the existing Board. BPH Ltd. has a maximum of 12 trustee positions, and the Company aims to ensure a range of relevant skills and a diversity of backgrounds.

  • Regular attendance at board meetings which will take place roughly every 3 months, but may be more frequent at certain times (such as during the current transition period).
  • Trustees will undertake actions to support the team and consider relevant matters on an ‘as needed’ basis, and may set up sub-committees to achieve this.
