The Wallace Collection is currently inviting applications to fill a number of Trustees roles which will become vacant in Jan 2017.

The chief role of the Trustees is to assist the Chair in meeting the Board’s overall responsibilities, in accordance with their statutory duties and the policies of the Secretary of State.

Each of the new Trustees will need enthusiasm for the museum and its work and will be able to devote sufficient time and energy to act as an effective member of the Board.

  • They will need a strong interest in the collections and the scholarly aims of the museum.

  • They will need a strong interest in the educational mission of the museum and share its commitment to encourage the enthusiasm for and knowledge of art, history and design from the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century across a wide range of audiences.

  • They will also need a sound sense of general financial and funding imperatives which apply to the Wallace Collection, where an imaginative approach to fundraising is very important.
