Non Executive Director

About the role

The Organisation

Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre Ltd sit at the cultural heart of Scotland and the City of Dundee. Founded in 1939, the Rep building is a centre of creative energy, a space for engagement with a wide range of art forms, whilst also playing a lead role in arts education and engagement across the city and beyond. Proud of its Scottish roots, the Company looks outwards, producing dance and theatre of national and international significance, for and with a diverse audience.

The model is unique. Two creative forces share a home and a legal structure. Having a permanent acting ensemble is rare (unique in Scotland), but combined with a dance company and extensive creative learning, it makes the Rep building one of a kind and a hub of creative energy.

Dance runs through the veins of Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre Ltd and plays a key role in the artistic vision and business programme of the Company. Home to the only full-time ensemble of contemporary dancers in Scotland, the building also hosts a yearlong programme of dance onstage and an extensive creative learning programme of dance activities.

The Role

Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre are seeking a Non Executive Director to contribute dance knowledge and expertise to the Board and the company. As the Scottish Dance Theatre continues to grow in stature and acclaim, it is essential that the dance viewpoint is strongly represented on the Board, in both a corporate and creative context.

We seek to boost the Board experience of operating in a ‘world market’, with regard to both traditional and new mediums of theatre and dance. The need to achieve a programming balance that reflects enterprise, risk and commerciality, whilst continuing to build the Company’s brand and increase its reach at home and abroad, becomes ever more critical due to ongoing pressures on public funding and economic uncertainty.
