The Stanley People’s Initiative is looking for a new Chair
Could you guide a young organisation from start-up to success? Stanley People’s Initiative (SPI) is looking for a Chair of the Trustee Board who can bring significant commercial and managerial experience. This is a voluntary, unpaid role, although SPI will meet essential expenses.
We are a small charity founded to take Stanley Halls, South Norwood’s landmark Edwardian ‘town hall’, into community ownership as a performing arts centre, community venue, and enterprise hub. We have succeeded!
Croydon council finalised a community asset transfer on a 35-year lease in September 2015. Anchor tenants have moved in, and SPI is in a good financial position.
As core tenants, the Halls now has three performing arts groups -- South London Theatre and Aelfa Academy of Dramatic Arts, and The Lab Collective interactive theatre group – plus Nomad Labs photographic studio and the busy Coffee Craft café. Have a look at our website to see what’s on: http://www.stanleyhalls.org.uk
To build on this success, SPI needs a Chair who can offer practical leadership to the Trustees, Centre Manager, and staff.
We are looking for someone to lead us through developing the business plan as we move out of the current start-up phase, to ensure the Halls become a vibrant and financially resilient South London arts and community venue with London-wide appeal. At the heart of this will be working with the Centre Manager and other staff on the establishment of effective strategies and administrative systems to sustain a thriving, multi-functional venue.
Our major requirement is managerial and commercial experience.
Familiarity with performing arts or heritage buildings would be desirable, but is not essential, as it is available to the Board
The ideal candidate will have:
Interested candidates should contact our current chair, Councillor Kathy Bee: Kathy@kathybee.co.uk or 07788852385 for further information.
Application deadline: 11th July 2016
Stanley Halls is on South Norwood Hill, 5 mins from Norwood Junction station with fast rail links to London Bridge and East Croydon; direct trains to Victoria; London Overground trains
Registered charity no 1155680.
