Transform is seeking a new Chair of the board to support the organisation at a critical moment, as we embark on an exciting period of development over the next three years.

We are seeking an inspiring individual who values creative ambition, inclusivity and internationalism. The Chair should understand and be committed to Transform’s mission, and be able to contribute to and guide the workplan that will achieve the company’s objectives. We are seeking someone with leadership experience who can oversee Transform to be more sustainable on every level. They will believe in the power of live performance and an international approach to inspire change.

The incoming Chair will have the experience and know-how to strengthen Transform’s positioning within the Leeds City Region and beyond. They will ensure Transform achieves its artistic ambitions and embeds an inclusive, care-led approach to organisational practises.

We welcome candidates from a variety of sectors, whether arts and culture, social-change and the charity sector more broadly, and those with a background in community work or activism, business, or other sectors. We are keen to hear from those who might already have experience as a Chair or Trustee, in addition to those with other kinds of leadership experience.

Current trustee Toni-Dee Paul has written an introductory letter for anyone interested to know more.
