Chair - Hull 2017 UK City of Culture Limited

HULL UK CITY OF CULTURE: BEYOND 2017

Hull 2017, the organisation set up to deliver Hull UK City of Culture 2017, will carry on as a new permanent national arts company based in the city but operating nationally and with a remit to transform the future of cities through arts and culture.

2017 has by any standards been a success and we will build on the momentum of an extraordinary year that has seen more than 1,000 events, hundreds of artists and nine out of ten residents taking part.

We will continue to commission world-class arts programming aimed at residents and visitors, whilst working strategically with partners inside the city and across the UK to cement Hull’s reputation as a centre for culture and
creativity. We will also develop the company as an independent agency specialising in culture and cities, which not only commissions work, but offers unrivalled expertise, consultancy and advocacy, across the UK and internationally.

We have begun the process of recruiting a team of creative and motivated individuals, who will have the opportunity to shape a company that will have a key role in transforming cities and the lives of people living in them through culture. In 2018 the company will undergo a rebrand to reflect its refocused and renewed role.

THE ROLE

The current Chair of Hull 2017, Rosie Millard, will be stepping down from the Board in 2018. Having led the Board successfully since its inception in 2014, she leaves in place an able and committed Board, an excellent and hardworking Executive Team, a strong financial position and an exciting period of development ahead. Hull 2017 is therefore seeking an exceptional candidate to join the board as Chair.

The new Chair will have a proven and impressive track record of strategic leadership, be an astute business person, an effective communicator and advocate. They should be able to mobilise a network of influencers at the highest levels and command respect amongst regional and national decision-makers in the public and private sectors.

THE OPPORTUNITY

The Chair is required to provide leadership to Hull 2017 itself and to harness and direct the Trustees’ efforts in support of its exciting period ahead. A key element of this involves driving forwards the new strategic business plan, working with the Executive Team and partners across the city and the country. The Chair is the direct line manager of joint CEO’s, the Programme Director and Executive Director, and leads the Trustee appointments and development.

GOVERNANCE

Hull 2017 is both a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee and has a registered trading arm, Hull 2017 Enterprises Limited. The Trustees, directors in company law, are also the only members of the Company. The directors are expected to comply with their legal, financial and fiduciary duties under company law and as Trustees must also comply with charity law. Even though many of these duties are delegated to the Executive staff, the Board sets the context for delegation and for specific delegated powers, the ultimate joint responsibility for every aspect of the Company’s operation lies with the Board of Trustees.

The current Board Trustees can be viewed via the Hull 2017 website hull2017.co.uk/theboard although the new Chair will lead a refresh of the board in 2018 as the existing trustees come to the end of their tenure.

PERSON SPECIFICATION

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the following experience:

  • Solid leadership experience as a main-board executive or non-executive director, ideally with some prior experience in a chairing capacity, whether in the commercial, public or not-for profit sectors;
  • An appreciation and passion for arts and culture;
  • Experience of working with and influencing local government; Strong understanding of the role of Chair, with a focus on leading and developing Board members and working closely with the Executive Team to provide strong leadership to the wider organisation;
  • Commitment to the highest standards of governance;
  • An ability to think and act strategically, identifying major issues for the company;
  • An excellent network of regional and national senior-level influencers and willingness to use contacts for the benefit of Hull 2017;
  • An ability to command respect amongst local and regional stakeholders and national decision makers;
  • Excellent communication and presentational skills, comfortable in an ambassadorial role and appearing as a media spokesperson;
  • A willingness and ability to play a personal role in fundraising;
  • Commitment to the ethos of using arts as a transformational tool for improving health and wellbeing;
  • Excellent interpersonal and team skills, used to working with a wide range of senior stakeholders from diverse backgrounds.
