The Guardian has just published an article by Ian Joseph, which provides a useful reminder of the key steps to take when recruiting new Trustees.
It suggests steps to ensure the positions you wish to fill are appealing to candidates and your recruitment process is successful. The advice is just as applicable to small or large charities including museums. It provides a useful reminder of the need to avoid jargon and to help new Trustees who haven’t worked with charities before to adjust the way things work in your organisation. It also reminds charities looking for Trustees that a potential Trustee’s motivations are just as important as their skills and should be explored at interview. It suggests some ways of broadening your search for Trustees beyond your existing network.
Museums can use the AIM Trustee portal to advertise Trustee vacancies.
