Trustees - Vacancy

Job type


Are you interested in using your skills and passion to help one of the UK’s leading outdoor arts companies continue its creative journey?

In 2020 Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) celebrated 40 years of creating unforgettable events and participatory experiences that have been thrilling audiences, bringing life to public spaces and inspiring and enabling people’s creativity. Although 2020 didn’t turn out to be quite what we expected, we weathered everything the pandemic had to throw at us and came out even more focussed on how we can support communities through difficult times.

We have a brilliant and dedicated staff team, a big family of artists, creatives, technicians and practitioners, as well as a dynamic, diverse board and a well-managed financial picture.

All we’re missing now... is you!

Ideally you will be:

  • Involved in the arts, culture and heritage sector: as an artist, creative or worker
  • Passionate about charities and the difference they make to society

Or perhaps you have something new and different to bring to the table – a unique perspective or background that will encourage us to think in new ways about the way that we work and the work that we make

“I joined the EEA board when I was 25 years old, and it was my first time being a Trustee. I’ve been so supported and nurtured that now, I’m the Chair of the board. Forget about big boardrooms or wearing suits, joining the EEA board is like coming into a big supportive sports team or drama ensemble - it’s nurturing and fun, rather than scary or alienating. I’ve done everything from conducting financial reviews to being part of an EEA artwork! The experience is broad and the more you throw yourself into it, the more rewarding it is.” - Dana Segal, Chair, EEA

Come and try us out!

We’ll be holding an open evening via Zoom on Wednesday 27 July 2022, 5pm where you will have an opportunity to meet the other Trustees, the Management Team and find out a bit more about us and tell us a bit more about you. If you would like to join this session, please RSVP to [email protected] or if that date doesn’t work for you, get in touch and we’ll find a time that does.

Deadline for applications: 10am, 3rd August 2022

How to apply:

Send us a two-minute video introducing yourself, highlighting your skills and why you want to become a Trustee. If a video isn’t quite your style, no problem, we’re happy to accept your CV and a one-page cover letter. All applicants must download and return the equal opportunities monitoring form.
