Arvon jobs

Properties Trustee

Closing date: 5pm Monday 27th March 2017

Arvon is seeking a new Trustee with relevant expertise in architecture and building conservation to lead the Properties Committee. The Properties Committee is responsible for the maintenance and conservation of Arvon’s properties – the Arvon estate amounts to approx. 60 acres in all. The Properties Committee meets three times a year.

Each year Arvon’s public programme delivers over 80 creative writing courses and retreats, attended by more than 1,200 aspiring writers. In addition, we host up to 50 weeks for schools and community groups, reaching over 700 young people and vulnerable adults. The Board provides Arvon with guidance and support in delivering this ambitious work. Helping to determine the character and mission of the organisation, Trustees are instrumental in the strategic planning of the organisation and overseeing the overall artistic policy, ensuring that the organisation’s assets are safeguarded by providing strong governance in the areas of finance and management, championing Arvon’s work and helping to fundraise. Our current Properties Trustee, Virginia Wedgwood, is stepping down after six years in the role.
