Manchester Craft and Design Centre

Manchester Craft and Design Centre employs a small but dedicated staff team alongside a board of trustees.


We are currently looking for new trustees to join our board.


Open Trustee Recruitment 2022

We are working towards a Board that is representative of the diversity of modern Britain, and that more closely reflects the diverse communities we work with and alongside. A personal love of the arts and learning is fundamental; as is a commitment to inclusion. At this exciting and critical time in our organisational journey, we’re particularly interested in hearing from people with skills, knowledge and expertise in one or more of the following areas:

• People leadership and HR
• Major project management and capital development
• Legal expertise
• Retail or business development

We recognise we currently under-represent Black people and People of Colour, Disabled people, and those with intersecting identities in our workforce and on our board; MCAD is actively working to address this and encourages applications from these backgrounds.

If you believe you can contribute through your experience and skills, then please get in touch for an informal conversation or simply send us an email about why you want to be part of MCAD’s family before 12pm on Friday 26th August 2022.

Shortlisted candidates will meet with some of our existing trustees during this summer/early autumn at a time that suits you.

For more information, please download the Trustee Recruitment Information Pack.

Contact us on [email protected] we would love to hear from you.
