The National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) and Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) are looking for four trustees to join the NHMF/HLF board

NHMF and HLF search for new trustees and committee members

The HLF is also recruiting 13 committee members to join seven committees across England.

Both positions offer an opportunity to help shape the future of the UK’s wide-ranging heritage and each organisation is looking for people from a wide variety of backgrounds.
Applicants must have a broad appreciation of heritage and a commitment to promoting public understanding and enjoyment of it to the widest possible audience. Strong skills in leadership, analytical thinking and communication are also required.

NHMF/HLF trustee Kathryn Gee, who will be standing down from the board next year said of the role: “It has been a wonderful experience to do work which I really believe in, for such a well-run organisation. The people are passionate, the schemes outstanding and the unparalleled access to heritage is an absolute honour. It has been hard work, but I shall miss it very much.”
