NMS BOARD OF TRUSTEES


APPOINTMENT OF NEW TRUSTEES TO NATIONAL MUSEUMS SCOTLAND BOARD


National Museums Scotland is one of the leading museums groups in the UK and Europe, and cares for a collection of over 12 million items of national and international importance. 


It has a key role to play as a national centre of excellence by enhancing its public services through increasing access and digital reach to its collections, both nationally and internationally, and by continuing to support the museum community across Scotland.  It also contributes and supports education, research, business and innovation, and its work enhances the reputation of Scotland as a country with a rich cultural heritage and a vibrant future.


We are now looking for up to 3 new Trustees to play a key role in developing one of Europe’s premier museums groups.  We are interested particularly in candidates with experience in: contributing to the development of collections; or academic research; or financial stewardship and governance; or estates development and management.  Although we would welcome applications from anyone who believes they could make a strong contribution, we are seeking to broaden the diversity of the Board of Trustees to ensure it has broad geographical involvement and is more balanced in terms of protected characteristics.


Serving as a Trustee on the Board of such an important organisation offers a real opportunity to make a positive contribution to life in Scotland. If you are interested in discussing this appointment further, you should contact Julie Brown, Head of Corporate Policy & Performance, National Museums Scotland on 0131 247 4272 and / or at J.Brown@nms.ac.uk 


The closing date for applications is Friday 16 March 2018. 


* Scottish Ministers are committed to diversity and equality.


* The public appointments process promotes, demonstrates and upholds equality of opportunity for all applicants.


* Scottish Ministers particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented on Scotland’s public bodies, such as women, disabled people, those from minority ethnic communities and people aged under 50.


Appointed on merit, committed to diversity and equality
