Help shape the future of Manchester Craft & Design Centre

Manchester Craft & Design (MCAD) is a not for profit Social Enterprise with a voluntary Board of Directors, who meet four times per year. Our mission is to be an unforgettable place to make, see and buy contemporary craft and design.  We also offer a rich portfolio of services including educational projects, exhibitions and the incubation of new talent and creative businesses.

The purpose of The Board is to help steer the Centre through a process of development and change to help us realise our strategic ambitions.  The Board also plays an important role in defining how the Centre contributes as a major cultural asset for the City of Manchester and the North West.

We are working towards a Board that is representative of the diversity of 21st century Britain, and are seeking a combination of the following skills, knowledge and experience to complement existing Directors:

Property sector:

  • Project management and capital programmes
  • Property management / development / management of contractors in capital works

Cultural sector:

  • Knowledge of operating as a trustee / governance of a charity
  • Artistic / creative business
  • Experience of working in the arts and cultural sector

For further information or to express an interest contact Kate Day, Director on 0161 832 4274 / director@craftanddesign.com

Closing date for expressions of interest: 30/6/2017
