Shetland Arts are open to applications to join our board of Trustees. Being a Trustee can be a very rewarding experience, as well as an opportunity to develop your own skills.

It is the role of Shetland Arts Development Agency board of Trustees to ensure the objectives of the Agency are realised through the management and direction of the organisation’s Chief Executive and through the approval and monitoring of a range of policies, delegation schedules and strategic plans. A key role of the Board of Trustees is to take the ‘long view’ on the organisation’s development and sustainability, including the monitoring of financial matters such as the approval of annual budgets and management accounts. Trustees ensure the organisation stays relevant to the community it serves by adapting to change and responding to strategic opportunities and challenges. Trustees serve a term of three years and are selected through a process of open recruitment.

New Trustees receive a full induction into the work of Shetland Arts as well as training on how to carry out the role. The Trustees meet on the last Thursday of each month at 5:30pm, six times a year formally and five times a year informally. Shetland Arts' trustees are not excluded from applying for our funding or other opportunities.
