Creative Edinburgh: Board Members
Creative Edinburgh is a growing network of
thousands of people working in the creative industries in
Edinburgh. An opportunity has arisen to join its Board and help
Edinburgh's dynamic creative sector to flourish.
What does the Board of Directors do?
The Board is responsible for setting the organisation's strategy
and supporting our Executive Director Ola Wojtkiewicz and team to
deliver it effectively. Apart from Ola all members are volunteers
and bring their own life and professional experience to the
The Board meets at least five times a year to review progress,
and we also ask members to be involved in at least one of our
working groups, contributing insight and experience to help the
Creative Edinburgh team to solve specific challenges they face. Our
Board members are also invited to our annual strategy planning days
with the Creative Edinburgh team and their Steering Committee.
Who are we looking for?
Creative Edinburgh's 5,000 plus members are a diverse bunch
across the creative industries and it's important to us that we
have a similar diversity of voice and experience on our Board.
- some experience of working in any of the creative industries
(but that includes early career applicants)
- an understanding of the challenges facing our sector in
- an interest to help your peers.
You probably won't have experience on a Board. That's an
advantage - we have plenty of people with board experience already
who will be happy to support you. You might not think that this
opportunity is aimed at people like you. That's not the case if you
meet the three criteria above.
Deadline for applications is Wednesday
15 December 2021 at 17.00.
Interview are currently scheduled to take place on the week of
10 January 2022.
