Stagetext Seeks New Trustee Treasurer

Stagetext are seeking a new Trustee with expertise in Finance to join our Board of Trustees, currently comprising ten members, six of whom are d/Deaf, deafened or hard of hearing.

Stagetext increases access to arts and culture for people with any form of hearing loss by advocating for and supplying captioning in theatres, and by producing live subtitles for museums and galleries, as well providing digital subtitles for cultural content.

We want to see a society where arts and cultural venues present no barriers to people who are d/Deaf, deafened or hard of hearing. More information can be found on our website www.stagetext.org.

Each year, we caption over 320 theatre performances, and live subtitle over 150 talks and tours in museums and galleries across the UK. We also train cultural venues on deaf awareness and support them to deliver captions and digital subtitles themselves. We are actively engaged in the development of new technologies and new markets and are committed to providing verbatim captioning and subtitling services of the highest quality.

Stagetext is d/Deaf-led: 60% of the Board are d/Deaf, deafened or hard of hearing. Our Board is very strong and committed led by the Chair, Robin Saphra. We are keen to find a new Trustee Treasurer who can strategically maintain Stagetext’s strong financial position and advise the Board.

You will need to have time to be able to attend four Board meetings and four Sub-Committee meetings per year. We would particularly like to talk to people with experience of Charity Finance and personal experience of our services.

We are keen to receive applications from all sections of the community in order to diversify our Board.
