Appeal for National Motor Museum Trustees

National Motor Museum interior upper floor

The National Motor Museum Trust is recruiting volunteers who can bring significant expertise and enthusiasm to the trustee board.

Founded in 1972, the National Motor Museum has grown to become a leading independent museum and charity with a mission to engage and inspire visitors, as well as preserve and promote motoring history. The museum’s range of vehicles spans from the earliest motor carriages to legendary Land Speed Record breakers, and its extensive collection of motoring objects, photographic images, film and video and library material has been designated by the Arts Council England as being of international importance.

The board is looking to strengthen skills in the areas of stakeholder engagement, income generation and fundraising, museum and archives management, education and learning, financial management and reaching out to the historic motoring movement.

We wish to recruit trustees with expertise in museums, archives and education in order to strengthen our trustee board. As an Accredited Museum, the Trust adheres to nationally agreed standards of good practice and governance. New trustees would help to ensure that the organisation has a clear vision, complies with the relevant legal and regulatory requirements and is governed at the highest possible standard. This role would involve attending trustee meetings and providing support and advice to senior management.

We also welcome applications from those who have the skills, time and interest but who prefer to become advisors or ambassadors for the Museum rather than formally take on trustee responsibilities.

Closing date for applications Friday 15th November 2019.

  1. I am a career engineer retired from the international petroleum industry. I live in Dorset, near Dorchester and continue to act as a consultant to the oil and natural gas industry on technical matters, as a technical advisor on large legal and insurance claims and as an educator for undergraduate and post graduate engineering degrees. My international industrial experience spans over 50 years during which time I have been involved in major engineering projects many of which have been world class. My project management skills and experience covers major capital developments of oilfields and their infra structure and I have administered many high cost technical development projects and engineering solutions. I have a number of patents to my credit many of these now commercially successful and in common application. In my industrial posts I have been in positions to advise boards of major oil companies, solicitors and lawyers, loss adjusters and investors. I have an interest in classic vehicles and own three classic restored British motorcars from the 60’s. Might my skills be of use to the museum as a trustee?

    1. Thank you very much for you interest in becoming a trustee. I have forwarded your details to the relevant member of staff who will be in contact.
