The Role of Chair

South East Dance is 25 years old this year and this is an outstanding opportunity to join us as we start a new chapter extending our offer for local people, communities, and dance artists in The Dance Space.

We are seeking a Chair who is based in the South East, with the drive and experience to lead the board and our strategic development in The Dance Space. 

Our Chair will be a big picture thinker who will champion and advocate for our work within and outside the arts locally and regionally, sharing our passion for dance and the contribution it can make to health, wellbeing and placemaking. 

The Chair will be a strategist, excel in building relationships, enjoy advocacy, and share our determination to make a difference to the communities we serve. They will have experience of change management and understand the working environment for Arts Council England funded organisations, particularly those which are part of the National Portfolio. They will seek to amplify our activities and their leadership will both strengthen and create the context for the executive team to achieve South East Dance’s goals.

The Chair will ensure that Trustees are involved in key decision-making processes and that they can work to their individual strengths in the interests of the organisation. 

The Chair will work closely with the executive team and Trustees to monitor South East Dance’s progress, impact, and contribution.
