Experience Opportunity

Talawa’s Young Trustees

Apply to become one of Talawa’s Young Trustees

Talawa currently has 10 trustees responsible for the governance of Talawa Theatre Company, a registered charity.

Now, we are seeking two young Trustees aged 18-25 who live, work or study in Croydon to join the Board of Trustees from October 2021.

Trustees lead a charity and are responsible for making sure it keeps true to its mission. They use their skills and experience to support their charities, helping them achieve their aims. Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact on company and can make a huge difference to your community and beyond. As a Trustee you will be able to influence Talawa Theatre Company, and inform how we can best serve our communities, audiences and artists in Croydon and across the UK. The responsibilities and voting rights that you will have will be equal to any other Trustee. The opportunity will also be both challenging and rewarding, with the offer of bespoke support and training.

All applications will be considered by our Board. The deadline for applications is Monday 20th September. The recruitment workshop day will take place on Saturday 2nd October 2021. Successful applications will be invited to an interview workshop in October which will give you an insight into being a board member and will help us identify the candidates with potential key skills. In October 2021 two candidates will be invited to join the Board, to be in post for the October Board meeting.
