Non Executive Directors, Board of St Martin-in-the-Fields Ltd (unrenumerated)
St Martin-in-the-Fields is a beautifully restored church in Trafalgar Square. It has an impressive legacy of worship, broadcasting, cultural life and involvement in social issues.
St Martin's is at an exciting time in its history. A major £36m redevelopment was completed in 2007, and for the congregational, commercial, cultural and charitable aspects to continue growing and expanding the "Building Futures" campaign is currently underway to raise a further £25m.
St Martin's is a community of nationally- and internationally-respected organisations, one of which is St Martin-in-the-Fields Limited (SMITFL). SMITFL is a limited company established in 1987 to manage all St Martin's commercial activities. These include an extensive music programme, two cafés, and a shop. Through its trading activities SMITFL makes a significant contribution to funding the wider work of St Martin's. We have set ourselves the goal of doubling profits by 2022 and are making good progress towards achieving that target. Due to succession planning we are now looking for enthusiastic, energetic and committed people to join the SMITFL Board as Non-Executive Directors to shape and drive its future enabling us to achieve our goals.
We are looking to appoint immediately two Non-Executive Directors, who have experience of:
- Position 1 - hospitality (particularly cafes and restaurants), including as a social enterprise
- Position 2 - classical music venue management and/or classical music promotion
If you are interested in becoming a Non-Executive director of SMITFL, and you do not have the experience referred to above, we would still love to hear from you because we anticipate that further vacancies will arise in the next nine months or so. Your skills and experience will make a big contribution to the commercial, social and cultural life of St Martin's.
As a Non-Executive Director you will need to able to commit and devote time to the position, probably one day a month. If you volunteer for specific projects this will likely increase. The role is unremunerated, although reasonable travel expenses are paid, if necessary.
