Trustee Recruitment

We are looking to further increase the size of our Board, to bring additional skills,
knowledge and connections and further innovation and fresh thinking to the team who
have helped it prosper so far. Trustees provide the oversight and governance for the
charity which includes a 70+ artists studio complex; part-time staff team; grants including
from MK Community Foundation, MK Council, Arts Council England.
We are particularly looking for people who can help AGMK with specific skills and
knowledge in:

  • Programming or production of any Art Genre.
  • Finance and accounts
  • Organisational and people management
  • Law, especially property law
  • Marketing and communications including digital media
  • Volunteer Management

We want the Board to have a wider representation of the diversity of our city. We are
particularly interested in hearing from people of colour and individuals from the LGBTQIA+
community as well as professionals in the early stages of their careers. You do not need
prior Trustee experience. The Board holds monthly meetings and Trustees take part in task-and-finish working groups when specific issues arise that need more intensive consideration.
The formal Trustee role description is on our website.
How to Apply
Our recruitment process is transparent and straightforward. If you are interested, please
contact john.best@artsgatewaymk.org.uk for an informal discussion and to arrange a visit
to see round our premises in Burners Lane and meet some of our resident artists.
We will invite you to write a short statement of your interest in AGMK, your career, skills
and connections, and how you think you can contribute to our further success.
Our Recruitment Committee will shortlist and interview candidates. Candidates will then be
invited to join the board, or to take an observer role with a view to full trusteeship later
