South Square Centre is looking for two Co-Chairs (or one Chair) and trustees to lead our organisation ahead of a pivotal time for Bradford, as we lead up to being the UK City of Culture in 2025.

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from individuals who would like to take up the role of chair, either exclusively or in partnership with another individual as a shared co-chair role.

Trustees play a vital role in the strategic leadership and governance of our organisation. As a trustee you’ll have the opportunity to meet new people, develop your skills and play a rewarding role in our success as an organisation.

Being a trustee at South Square you will:

• Play a role in our strategic leadership and governance
• Your experience with us will enable you to develop your skills and knowledge
