Board Vacancies with Creative Dundee

Creative Dundee is seeking new Board members at an exciting time for the organisation and the city. As a small organisation recognised as a social enterprise, we have a responsibility to the city, its creative communities and citizens. The Board plays an active role in the strategic direction of the organisation.

Now in its third year of trading, Creative Dundee is a network organisation which has assisted the city to become increasingly acknowledged as a creative hub. Since starting life initially as a blog in 2008, Creative Dundee has worked hard to generate opportunities, value and benefits for the city’s creative professionals and the wider city. You can read more about our activities and impacts in this report, online here and our media coverage here.

Creative Dundee is now looking for individuals with enthusiasm and the skills to assist the organisation to drive the city as a thriving international creative hub, where creative talent can base, grow and sustain their practice. We’re particularly interested to hear from those who might not be working in the creative sector, but have an understanding of Dundee’s creative scene.

Board posts are voluntary and in return we offer the opportunity to work with an innovative outward focused organisation which has collaboration, quality and experimentation at its core.
