Overview

International Documentary Festival Sheffield (Doc/Fest) is inviting applications for three new voluntary Trustees to join our Board.

Sheffield Doc/Fest is an internationally renowned charitable organisation, responsible for one of the world’s leading documentary film and arts festivals, and marketplaces, that celebrates, shares and debates non-fiction films. Sheffield Doc/Fest is run by International Documentary Festival Sheffield, an independent registered charity (no. 1184849), whose purpose is to advance the art of film, education and training in documentary filmmaking.

In 2019 we welcomed 28,000 public admissions, 3500 industry delegates, and guests from over 60 countries. Our 28th edition will take place both physically in Sheffield and online internationally, as we make plans to deliver a hybrid festival, as we did last year.

We are currently looking for Trustees who will work with the Board, Festival Director and Senior Management Team to help oversee the Governance of the festival including all legal, financial and compliance aspects. And to help deliver a strategic vision for the Charity over the next six to ten years. In particular we would welcome applicants with previous experience of charity governance, cultural festivals, social enterprise, independent theatrical film, visual and digital arts, public arts institutions, academia, community engagement and learning & participation. 

More generally, the role of the Trustees is to act as public advocates for the festival nationally and internationally and to be on hand to help problem-solve where necessary.  

We are looking for people who are not only passionate about non-fiction storytelling but are also committed to championing diverse stories told by diverse storytellers.

Our jobs are like our festival, open to all. We welcome applications from across all the nations and regions of the UK and from appropriately experienced younger people, LGBTQI+, community, D/deaf, disabled, or people of colour. 

The Board meets 4 times a year with additional ad hoc meetings if required.  Meetings are currently held remotely. The role is voluntary, though travel / expenses will be covered.

Darent Valley Landscape Partnership, Shoreham, Kent

Samuel Palmer, the visionary Victorian landscape artist, described the Darent Valley as an ‘earthly paradise’. Two centuries on, it remains a beautiful rural area, much of it designated within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). With £4m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and others, the Kent Downs AONB Unit is enhancing and raising the profile of this very special landscape through its Darent Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme (DVLPS).

To complete our friendly multi-disciplinary team, we are searching for an individual with experience of engaging communities by combining art and landscape.

From its base, a converted barn in the heart of the valley, you will be co-ordinating and delivering projects in the our ‘Inspiring’ programme and leading on the communication of the Scheme’s work. You will bring landscape heritage and the arts together to engage people to understand, experience, celebrate and value the natural and cultural heritage of the Darent Valley. This will involve working with art institutions and DVLPS partners such as the Ashmolean and VA museums. You will also contribute to the mutual support provided within the team to help delivery across all the scheme’s programmes and ensure that the landscape continues to benefit people and communities in the future.

This is a genuinely exciting opportunity for a motivated candidate to innovate and develop their career in art and communications by being part of the Kent Downs AONB’s flagship landscape conservation project.

This post is considered by KCC to be a customer-facing position. The Council therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) to ensure that post holders have a command of spoken English/Welsh sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements. The appropriate standards are set out in the Job Description/Person Specification.
