Become a Trustee of Blaze

Blaze is looking for new Trustees to support our growth and commitment to being youth-led.

Every charity has a Board of Trustees – a group of volunteers who make sure that the charity is working within its purpose. Trustees have responsibility for overseeing the work of the charity, making sure it’s financially stable, well-run and fulfilling its charitable objectives. More information can be found on the Charity Commission website.

Joining Blaze’s Board of Trustees will mean you’ll be at the forefront of supporting the next generation of creative leaders and youth-led practice.

 We’re looking for passionate and enthusiastic people who:

  • Love creativity and the arts, whether that be art, music, theatre, film and TV, or something else!
  • Are excited by and committed to youth-led practice
  • Recognise the value of diversity in the arts

We recognise the benefit of having diverse voices and perspectives on our Board of Trustees. Our Board should represent the diversity of our work, and the people and communities we work in. For this reason we’re proactively seeking and encourage applications from:

  • People from the Global Majority
  • People aged under 30
  • People who identify as D/deaf, Disabled or Neurodivergent
  • People from the LGBTQIA+ community

We are also looking for people with specific experience in:

● Financial planning
● Business growth and resilience
● Human resources and employment
● Safeguarding
● Youth-led work
