Community Advisory Group Member

Are you passionate about giving young people and underrepresented communities in the trade a voice? Do you want to have an impact on the jewellery, silversmithing and allied industries? The Goldsmiths’ Centre, the UK’s leading charity for the professional training of goldsmiths, is seeking proactive individuals who have experience in craft, education and training, marketing, outreach, community engagement or diversity to join its new Community Advisory Group.

We are seeking up to ten individuals to support our charity develop initiatives and programmes that are informed, innovative and inclusive by:

  • bringing their knowledge and experience of outreach into the community to increase access to the work of the Goldsmiths’ Centre;
  • helping the Goldsmiths’ Centre reach underrepresented communities through our public programmes;
  • supporting our charity to engage underrepresented communities and share impactful content through targeted communications. 

We will consider applications from individuals with work experience in the following areas:  

  • Craft practitioners and consultants  
  • Education and training professionals
  • Exhibition makers and event programmers  
  • Outreach, community or diversity advocates 
  • Arts, crafts and heritage marketeers  

As a Community Advisor, you will be working with the Goldsmiths’ Centre team to discuss, contribute to, and help evaluate our charity’s work in the areas of education and training, marketing and public programmes over a two-year period. You will be meeting as part of the group, which is a non-decision-making body, approximately twice a year. In addition, there will be specific times throughout the year when the Goldsmiths’ Centre team may seek your advice on specific initiatives related to your field of expertise.

You will have the opportunity to have a real impact on the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s work and the industry as a whole. The Goldsmiths’ Centre will offer you a personal development grant of £300 per annum in recognition of your support as a Community Advisor, and you may be able to take part in further opportunities to help shape the future of the Goldsmiths’ Centre.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis with the second application round closes on 28 January 2022 at 5pm. Please note that places are limited and that we will be accepting a further six individuals onto the Community Advisory Group. 

To apply, please send your CV together with a short cover letter explaining why you would like to be a Community Advisor to professional.training@goldsmiths-centre.org
