Non-Executive Director

  • Voluntary
  • Surrey


DAISY is a collection of disability and mental health focused arts organisations which promote and celebrate the great artistic work being created in Surrey. The organisation strives to develop the South East as the lead region in the UK for disability and deaf cultural activity, making Surrey a welcoming and inclusive place for all artists to practise. DAISY works with Disabled Artists and its member organisations to share skills and resources. We work with cultural partners across Surrey to put on exhibitions, create artworks and increase the awareness and status of Disability Arts.

The Role

In this voluntary role, you will be joining our five other Directors - Laura Jones (Co-Artistic Director of Stop Gap), Hayley Bull (CEO of Bloomin’ Arts) and Julie Hoyle (Artist) and Leah Zakss (Freelance Arts and Music Consultant), Cara Flowers (Artistic and Managing Director of DAISY) - to help DAISY to raise awareness of the incredible art being created in Surrey by Disabled Artists.

Having recently launched a number of new initiatives and under different management, DAISY is entering a new phase of its development and growth and as a Non-Executive Director, you will have the chance to make a real difference to the Disabled Artists we work with. We are looking for a number of people to join our board with, ideally, a background or interest in one or more of the following: finance, fundraising, organisational development, governance and the arts. DAISY is currently in the process of transforming from a Community Interest Company (CIC) with a board of Directors to becoming a registered charity (CIO). When this happens, the Directors will then become Trustees.

Potential profile:

  • Our priority is to recruit someone with lived experience of a disability, in order to offer diverse perspectives and to represent the people we work with.
  • Close connections with the County of Surrey or nearby.
  • A passion for the Arts, ideally Disability Arts and/or Social Justice
  • A clear understanding and alignment to our values of equality and inclusivity for all
  • A big picture thinker with a collaborative approach who will understand the challenges of operating as part of a unified Board

As a Director of the DAISY board, you will be expected to meet every few months for an online meeting to discuss future decisions. Other tasks may be required as deemed appropriate but to date these have been fairly light-touch. In order to ensure we are the right fit for you, we ask that you attend at least one Directors meeting with a review before officially becoming a DAISY Director. We will endeavour to provide you with a welcome pack to ensure you have all the information you need to make that decision.

We are keen to hear from applicants with lived experience of disability. As a disability arts organisation it is important to be able to represent the people we work with.

If you are excited by the potential of working as part of our Board and helping us to realise our ambitions, then we look forward to receiving your application and meeting with you in due course.

To apply

Please send us a letter (no more than 1 page) outlining why you want to join our board and what you can add. We don’t need a career history but please include this if relevant. You can send a video submission if preferred.

Please send your letter to: by June 3rd 2024
