We are seeking new Trustees to join our Board with expertise in the areas of Finance and Games, to support the next exciting phase of Blast Theory’s development.

The opportunity

As a Blast Theory Trustee, you will work alongside industry-leading individuals in a supportive and creative governance environment. You will have plenty of opportunities to experience Blast Theory’s work, sometimes at R&D/testing stage. Our Trustees support the Chair and Directors in the strategic positioning of the organisation, and help the company achieve structured growth and build new partnerships regionally, nationally and internationally.

What we are looking for

We are seeking Trustees to add new skills to our Board in the areas of Finance and Games. Please download our recruitment pack for more details and person specifications. You can also download a large print version.

We have a strong commitment to Diversity & Inclusion and encourage applications from people of colour, people with disabilities (including ‘invisible’ disabilities or neurodiversity such as autism and dyslexia) and people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds in particular, as these people remain underrepresented in governance roles. We will reimburse your travel and cover childcare costs to attend meetings.

You may be earlier in your career and not sure whether a Trustee role is right for you. We encourage you to apply: we are seeking people who can contribute fresh ideas and perspectives, not necessarily people with a long track record or a lot of previous Board experience. If you’re unsure about whether this opportunity is for you and you’d like to talk to us about what the role involves, please contact us.

How to apply

Please download our Trustee recruitment pack for full details about the role, your responsibilities as a Trustee and what we are looking for.

Please send a letter of application telling us how you meet the relevant person specification, along with a CV, to Dan Lamont, Company Manager ([email protected]). Please also complete an anonymous monitoring form.

If you would like to make an application in an alternative format (for example video, audio or phone) please contact Dan for further information.
