The search is on to find champions for one of Europe’s greatest buildings of the 19th century.
St George’s Hall Charitable Trust is on the hunt for new members to help shape the future of one of Liverpool’s most iconic 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:
- Knowledge of heritage
- Fundraising skills
- Strategic organisation, design and development
- Entrepreneurial skills
- 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.
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 [email protected] or call 0151 233 0470 for more information.
