New Trustees

Closing date: 15 March 2021

Henry Moore Foundation

The Henry Moore Foundation, a registered charity, is the largest artist-endowed grant-giving foundation in Europe. We have bold ambitions and wish to appoint new Trustees who will help us to deliver them.

Our primary objectives are to preserve Moore's legacy at his home and grounds at Perry Green in Hertfordshire; to support and extend the study and research of sculpture at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds; to encourage the public enjoyment of art and sculpture through world-wide touring of the Henry Moore Collection and through publications and online resources; to support sculpture projects in the UK and abroad through the award of grants.

We wish to appoint three new trustees with extensive experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Modern sculpture
  • Collections management, ideally including archive and library
  • Developing diverse programmes and audiences in the arts and cultural sector
  • Creative enterprise or cultural business management, e.g. publishing, retail
  • Investments and financial business management

Additional insight and experience in advocacy and strategic planning would be beneficial.

We actively promote equality and diversity across all of our activities. This recruitment campaign is part of an organisation-wide development plan to improve the diversity of our people. We are seeking to diversify our board; specifically, we wish to encourage applications from women, younger people and people from black, Asian and minority ethnic cultural backgrounds. We also wish to encourage applicants from Leeds and the wider county of Yorkshire.
