Trustees - National Motor Museum Trust, Beaulieu

25 September 2019

A rare opportunity is being offered for volunteers to join the board of the National Motor Museum Trust to help shape its future.

Expertise and enthusiasm are the key skills being sought and successful recruits will help to shape the future strategy for the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu and its world-famous collection of more than 250 vehicles, which tell the story of motoring in Britain.

The museum’s range of vehicles spans from the earliest motor carriages to legendary Land Speed Record breakers, while the Trust’s specialist reference library and extensive collection of motoring artefacts, photographic images, film and video has been designated by the Arts Council England of international importance. See for details.

Edward, Lord Montagu founded the National Motor Museum in 1972 and it 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.

National Motor Museum Trust Chief Executive Russell Bowman said: “We are at an interesting point in our history, as we approach our 50th year and look to the future. We would like to recruit new trustees and advisors who will bring fresh enthusiasm and expertise to take us from strength to strength.”

As an Accredited Museum, the museum adheres to nationally agreed standards of good practice and governance. New trustees would help to ensure that the Trust has a clear vision, complies with the relevant legal and regulatory requirements and is governed at the highest possible standard. The role would include approving budgets, supporting staff and attending quarterly board meetings at Beaulieu.

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.

The Trust is also open to applications from those who have the skills, time and interest but would prefer to become advisors or ambassadors for the museum rather than formally take on trustee responsibilities.
