With education, activism, anti-racism and social justice at our roots, we wish to recruit an inspiring individual with digital strategy skills support our vision: the benefits of the heritage of the African Caribbean diaspora.
With remote working: access to physical archives requires some thoughtful input around material digitisation and storytelling.
We are looking for an individual to advise on a Digital strategy and operational plan to support and future proof our organisational needs. One challenge is to design ways offer up educational resources , to be able to offer those tools that will can generate income. The Trustee will have ideas around practical solutions within our scope/scale. They will provide recommendations for IT systems, but also have knowledge / experience of digital & data compliance. They will be able to help us to seek extra pro-bono support (e.g. from corporates or consultancies).
Our Trustees will have these Qualities:
The Board as a whole should encompass knowledge of the following areas:
We believe that your strong leadership skills, professional expertise, and your ability to bring in digital and other IT resources, means that you will be part of an important step change process that will help us deliver the charity’s remit. As a Trustee with strong innovative and practical skills, we need your support to ensure that FHALMA has a clear vision and strategy; therefore we are looking for your skills to help strengthen and underpin our voluntary structure.
We are a small team and so far we have a very good track record in delivering art and archive projects. We are keen to boost our connections across generations. (Specifically annual Huntley conferences, symposia, schools workshops, plus a ground-breaking exhibition: www.nocolourbar.org ). Our legacy means that we attract people from a range of backgrounds, but all who have a shared interest and value the contribution to current social, education, environmental improvements that Eric and Jessica Huntley have made across ALL communities, not only the African Caribbean Diaspora.
If you are keen to support the contributions of Black culture to society at large - you will enjoy working with us. Some of us are descendants from the “Windrush Generation”. Knowing that our archives have inspirational and positive stories, role models and evidentiary documents to inform, influence and encourage educational attainment in young people, is a privilege to uncover. Together, we can make a huge difference to improve the national dialogue: work across other sectors in delivering partnership projects, to reach intergenerational audiences; sharpen or learn new skills, make and build new relationships via our respective networks.
Opportunities may exist for a Trustee to bring one of their mentees to shadow them at one of the sub-committee meetings; Transformation Group: Business Planning; Fundraising; Marketing; Event Planning.
