Northern Stage is seeking YOUNG TRUSTEES

Northern Stage currently has 10 Trustees, who are responsible for the governance of Northern Stage as a charity and as a company. The board is led by a Chair, who has additional responsibilities for coordinating the Board governance, but holds equal voting rights with all other members. 

We are seeking two young Trustees aged 18-25 to join the Board of Trustees from September 2019. 


Trustees lead a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. They use their skills and experience to support their charities, helping them achieve their aims. Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives and can make a huge difference to your community and beyond.

As a Trustee you will be able to influence the future direction of Northern Stage, and inform how we can best serve young people and communities across the North East.  The responsibilities and voting rights that you will have will be equal to any other Trustee.  The opportunity will be both challenging and rewarding, with the offer of bespoke support for those who need it. The experience will help you develop new skills, and most trustees get great satisfaction from knowing they are part of something that makes a huge difference to so many people’s lives.
