The NWFED is an independent membership organisation for the museum and heritage sector. Our focus during 2021/22 is to grow partnerships through diversifying the reach of the Federation, and deliver a range of inclusive activities to support NW museum sector professionals and volunteers. Joining our Board, you will help us in working towards becoming an organisation that puts equality, diversity, and inclusion at the forefront of our commitments and actions as a Federation.

We are seeking Board members with interest in accessible events programming, fundraising, and business planning, but expressions of interest in other areas are also welcomed. We are looking to diversify our Board, so it is more inclusive and representative of our membership. We particularly want to hear from interested applicants who have diverse experiences, heritage, and personal attributes to bring to the role.

If you are enthusiastic, well organised and keen to take responsibility we would like to hear from you.  In return we offer you the opportunity to work closely with experienced and supportive colleagues, to further develop your skills and career and to participate in key events and networks. 

If you think this might be for you and you would like to find out more – please contact the Chair of NWFED, Alex Walker 07507 888271.
