Baltic Creative Community Interest Company is seeking to appoint two new board members in 2021. We are keen to ensure we have the vision, capacity and skills to oversee the next phase of our ambitious and inclusive growth plans and continue to sustain the Creative and Digital sector in the region.
Baltic Creative CIC was established in 2009, with the main ambition to support the growth of Creative & Digital Industries in Liverpool through the development of property. Through a sector-led, community ownership model we now manage 120,000 sq/ft of space supporting 180 companies and 650 people in work. We have been a catalyst for the regeneration and establishment of the Baltic Triangle area and we’ve become the place for the C&D sector in Liverpool to prosper.
In 2020 we changed our Memorandum & Articles, which broadened our concept and remit to cover the Liverpool City region’s six boroughs. Our ambition is to own and manage 500,000 sq/ft across the region by 2026 supporting 600 Companies and 3,000 people in work.
This change also now allows us to offer remuneration to board members. The aim is to attract a wider, more diverse pool of applicants. We are particularly keen to hear from younger applicants and those from black and ethnic minority backgrounds. The directorships now offer a payment of £2,400 per annum. Other reasonable expenses, including care responsibility costs are also covered.
Board members attend four board meetings per year and participate in the life and culture of the organisation and community. This may include supporting the staff team and advocating for the sector in an inclusive and positive way. Board meetings are currently held on the last Tuesday of the month (Jan / April / July / Oct) and normally last 2hrs.
The two positions we are looking to fill do not require extensive experience or previous board membership but your commitment to the creative and digital sector in our region is essential. Please refer to the Job Description and if relevant, include your experience or skills in some or all of the following areas:
- Diversity, Equality & Inclusion
- C&D sector and business development
- C&D property and area development
The term of the role is for 3 years with an additional 3 years renewable in agreement with the board.
If you are interested in the work we do and could make a positive influence on the C&D sector and our organisation, please submit the following:
- a one-page covering letter, referring to the Job Description and Person Specification
- a two page CV
- your completed Equal Opportunities Form
Please email the above documents directly to our Managing Director, Mark Lawler [email protected] by 5:00pm Monday 1st February 2021.
