Home to over 140 independent creative businesses, Cockpit is London’s leading studios for contemporary craft and the UK’s only business incubator for craft and design. Over 30 years, we have built an international reputation for quality, integrity and creative excellence. With a new CEO and strategy in development, this is an exciting time to join the Board to shape Cockpit’s future.

The Board wishes to appoint new Trustees with these areas of expertise:
• Finance and Accountancy
• Fundraising, including Trust and Foundations and High Net Worth Individuals
• PR, marketing and communications
• Local connections in Deptford/Lewisham and/or in Holborn/Camden

We are also open to deepening and extending Board expertise in other areas relevant to Cockpit’s activities and therefore welcome applications from all interested candidates.
Cockpit currently has ten serving Trustees, three of whom, including the Chair and Deputy Chair, will complete their third and final term in March 2022.

We will appoint a new Chair in the coming year, either from within or outside theexisting Board, and would also like to hear from candidates who may be interested in this role.

How to apply:
Please send your CV and a covering letter of up to two pages outlining your interest in joining the Board of Cockpit Arts to by Monday 21st October at 5pm.
