Organisation: Abney Park Trust

Salary: Volunteer position

Closing date: 21/04/2017

Abney Park Trust aims to protect and promote the site, to provide education, recreation and leisure opportunities. We balance needs with local community involvement through transparent management.

We are now looking for several new trustees to help with this.

You would need to:

  • devote on average 3 to 4 hours a week
  • act as part of a team with shared aims
  • lead and participate in improving areas of activity

We’re particularly interested in people with interest and/or expertise in the following:

  • events management
  • community outreach
  • HR

You do not need to be an expert as we often call on the help of professional or voluntary specialist advisers. You do need to be willing to learn enough to ask the right questions and decide what to do with the information. It can be a good way to gain experience.

If you are interested in taking this further, please email  with ‘Potential Trustee’ in the subject line or pop into the visitors centre. Please explain why you are interested in becoming an Abney Park trustee, briefly outline any relevant experience, and the skills and qualities you can bring to the board.

If your application is accepted we will arrange a mutually convenient time for a meeting where we can explain more about the role and the process and learn more about each other.
