Image: Some of our community at an Amps Breakfast.

Creative Dundee is looking for new voluntary Board Directors who can help propel us forward in our aim to support creative individuals and organisations, and ensure the city is a sustainable, thriving place to live, work and grow in.

As a small and ambitious operational team, our Board is critical to our relevance, generating ripple effects that benefit the sustainability of creative communities, our sector and place.

Two of these positions will be for young people who would like to join us and gain experience of being part of a Board. We understand that joining a Board can feel intimidating or if you feel like your voice may not be heard; our Directors will provide mentoring and support to ensure you’re able to fully contribute and develop skills, and make certain that the views of young people are represented within the organisation and wider community.

We’re looking for people with expertise and enthusiasm who will play an active role in providing leadership and direction to the organisation. In return we offer the opportunity to work with an innovative organisation which has collaboration, quality and experimentation at its core.

Board of Director role

Directors help set the strategic direction of the organisation. As a social enterprise, Creative Dundee has a social responsibility towards the city, its creative communities and its residents. 

We have completed an audit of the skills and lived experiences of our Board, and we would like to recruit new Directors who have skills in the following areas; however if you feel you have additional skills/experiences to offer that are not listed here, we’d still love to hear from you. 

Equal opportunities

Creative Dundee is committed to being an equal opportunities organisation and welcomes all applications for consideration. We know there are candidates who may not fit every criteria we’ve outlined, or who have key skills we haven’t listed. If this is you, please do apply if you feel your particular experience or skill set could enhance this role.

We want to ensure that our application process does not present any accessibility barriers to potential applicants. If we can provide any assistance to support you through this process (or if you want to discuss alternative ways to show your skills and relevant experience), please get in touch.
