Board Director (3 roles available)

Bristol Creative Industries

Job Description

Bristol Creative Industries (BCI) is the membership network that supports the region’s creative sector to learn, grow and connect.

Our voluntary board of directors sets the strategy for BCI, ensures we’re a well governed organisation and supports the executive team in the delivery of our mission. For more information about BCI, visit About Us.

About the Board Director role at Bristol Creative Industries

We’re making some changes to the governance structure of BCI and are refreshing our board of directors, so we’re now looking for three new Board Directors to join the Bristol Creative Industries team. Rather than people who represent the different sectors of the community, we’re looking for people with specific skills and experience to help us deliver our mission.

Three members of the existing board – Chris Thurling (Chair), Lis Anderson and Steve Coombe – will remain and the three new directors will join them on the revamped board.

We encourage applications from all backgrounds, communities and industries, and are committed to having a team that is made up of diverse skills, experiences and abilities. We actively encourage BAME and disabled applicants and value the positive impact that difference has on our teams. We’re committed to equality and diversity within our workforce and all opportunities provided by BCI.
