ST GEORGE’S HALL Charitable Trust is on the hunt for new members to help shape the future of one of Liverpool’s most admired buildings.
The trust is dedicated to conserving, restoring and developing the Grade I listed venue – with a focus on raising funds which can be invested in projects to sustain and improve the Hall.
They are looking for new members to join its board, bringing skills such as a knowledge of heritage, fundraising skills, strategic organisation, design and development, entrepreneurial skills, and ambassadorial skills.
The new recruits will be part of a team delivering the Hall’s development strategy.
This strategy aims to make it an internationally recognised UNESCO World Heritage destination, improve accessibility, upgrade areas such as the heritage centre, develop an education centre, invest in additional art galleries and refurbish St John’s Gardens.
It also aims to safeguard the physical assets of St George’s Hall, including the restoration of the Minton tiles and the Willis organ. There is also the ambition to create new statues commemorating achievements by Liverpool women, joining the Kitty Wilkinson tribute in the Great Hall.
Chair of St George’s Hall Charitable Trust, Claire Dove OBE, said: “Being a trustee of an incredible building like St George’s Hall is not only a real honour, but is vitally important in securing the heritage of the Hall for future generations to come.
“The trust’s work is all about leaving a legacy and ensuring that the building stays the jewel in Liverpool’s crown for many years to come.”
City Halls Manager, Alan Smith, said: “We are hoping to recruit new additions to the team who have a passion for the Hall and really want to make a positive difference.
“We want them to bring their experience and forge links with the community, delivering a shared vision for the Hall which will ensure it remains a must-visit destination for tourists and a place residents and local businesses use as often as possible.
“It’s an exciting new chapter, and I hope we attract a wide variety of applicants with the ambition to grow and develop this city gem.”
Closing date for applications is 5pm Friday 12 April 2019, and anyone interest in applying for the voluntary roles should submit their CV and a covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0151 233 0470 for more information.
