Could you be our new Chair?

18th May 2022  |  ANNOUNCEMENTS

Chair vacancyDeadline for applications: Sunday 19 June 2022

Heritage Crafts has enlisted the help of Inclusive Boards in our search for a new Chair.

Heritage Crafts is seeking a new Chair to lead the organisation through the next stage of its strategic and operational development. The Chair will lead the Board and act as an active advocate for Heritage Crafts in a variety of contexts.

Heritage Crafts came into being a little over 12 years ago as a result of a groundswell of passion for traditional craft skills, and a desire that these skills be recognised, supported and celebrated for their contribution to UK culture, economy, community and individual wellbeing.

In 12 years we have seen a massive shift, as the media and policymakers have begun to respond to the popular demand that craft skills be celebrated and supported in all walks of life, from pre-school to retirement and beyond, and in all of the UK’s culturally and ethnically diverse communities.

We need to continue our sustainable growth with a new Chair who has the knowledge, skills and experience to harness past success and provide the Board with strong leadership and achieve our strategic vision of a UK with making at its heart.
