You would be joining the board at a really exciting time for the
organisation as they are about to enter their 40th year. It’s an opportunity
to make a huge difference to the next chapter of Oily Cart.   

If you are over 16 years old and feel that you could make a strong
contribution to the development and sustainability of Oily Cart then they
would love to hear from you. You don’t need to have a high-flying
career. Oily Cart understands that expertise can come in many forms. They are keen
to make their board more representative of the communities they work with,
as well as increasing company expertise in the areas outlined below.  

The key skills Oily Cart are currently seeking are:

  • Education: Knowledge of Specialist school curriculums. Experience
    working in these settings directly with young people. Understanding
    technologies and best practices used in specialist schools.
  • Disabled Advocacy: Insight and lived experience of the barriers
    disabled artists and audiences face engaging in cultural activity.
    Strong political advocacy skills. Good links with disabled-led arts
    networks. Understanding of best practice in access.
  • Fundraising: Ambassadorial and networking skills. Experience in
    fundraising through trusts and foundations, corporations and personal
    donorship programmes. 
  • Digital, marketing and audience development: Connections with
    digital media companies. Skills in marketing, communication and audience
