Trustee (Marketing & Fundraising)

Would you like to shape an exciting future for a remarkable museum?

Beck Isle Museum of Rural Life was established in 1967 and now comprises 27 rooms, galleries and display areas that brings history to life and shares the rich heritage of the area.

We are seeking new Trustees – people who can offer creative thinking, a fresh perspective and bring knowledge and skills currently underrepresented by the Board. We are committed to making the museum engaging and exciting to everyone and at the moment our younger audience members are not represented by our Board.

The museum was founded on the enthusiasm of volunteers who transformed their vision into reality. We are looking for Trustees with the same ambitious spirit to shape the future of Beck Isle Museum.

Being a Trustee provides exciting opportunities for professional and personal development, an opportunity to build networks, gain career building experience, and contribute to a team striving to make a difference.
