Although the initial drive for new Trustees has closed the Museum is always interested to hear from people interested in taking on such a role. As of November 2018 there are still 3 vacancies on our Board and if you are interested please contact the Director, Basil Greenwood, contact details below.
Torquay Museum was established in 1844 and has been in the existing building since 1876. An updating of Torquay Museum governance led to the establishment of Torbay Museums Trust (TMT) from 1 April 2015 marking a new venture in Torbay’s heritage sector. The Trust appointed a new Board in April 2015 and there are still places available to bring it up to its total of 12. Trustees are needed to oversee and drive the further development of the Museum including improved exhibitions and galleries, events, fundraising, educational work and closer working with Torre Abbey and Brixham Museum. We particularly require people with skills and experience in marketing, financial management, property and health and safety management and an ability to think strategically but with effective delivery in mind. Experience of the Museum/ Heritage sector would be an advantage, as well as in fund-raising, managing volunteers and the media.
The work is voluntary but rewarding. In return for a modest time input (one 2 hour meeting every other month plus reading and commenting on Board papers and possible committee work) Trustees will have privileged involvement in the future of Torquay Museum, and the development of Torbay’s rich heritage offer.
