The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport is seeking to appoint three outstanding individuals to join the Board of Trustees of the Royal Armouries, the national museum of arms and armour.
The appointments will run from 2019 to 2023, with the possibility of renewal under exceptional circumstances. Meetings are held four times a year, normally twice in Leeds and once each at the Tower of London and at Fort Nelson, near Portsmouth. Trustees may also be invited to join and/or chair one of the three Trustee sub-committees, and may be asked to give advice or make decisions between meetings and to attend social, corporate and fundraising events as they arise.
This is an exciting period in Royal Armouries’ history, having recently exponentially expanded its commercial operations and embarked upon developing an ambitious master plan to transform its public offer, standing and long-term sustainability. Trustees will be very much involved in this process.
