Non-Executive Board Members

Non-Executive Board Members

The Charles Dickens Museum (CDM) is seeking three people to join its non-executive Board in spring 2021. CDM is a fully accredited independent museum (charity no 212172) dedicated to promoting the life and work of Charles Dickens, writer, journalist and social reformer.

At this time, we are looking for skills and experience in museum management and accreditation, as well as people with legal and finance expertise. We would also welcome applications from people who live or work in the neighbourhood of the Museum (Bloomsbury, Holborn, King's Cross / St Pancras).

The Charles Dickens Museum recognises the value of diversity and is keen to more closely reflect the wide range of people who visit the Museum. We celebrate the role it plays in the creation of an inclusive workplace culture and thrive on the range of experience and insight diversity brings to our Museum. We want to broaden the diversity of our Board and welcome candidates who can contribute greater diversity of representation and thinking, including Black, Asian, and minority ethnic people, LGBT+ people, people with disabilities and those with experience of socio-economic disadvantage.
