An opportunity to join our Welsh Committee
We are recruiting three member vacancies on our committee for Wales. Committees take decisions on all requests between £50,000 and £1million and provide a crucial country perspective to the HLF Board on larger grants, targeted initiatives and on regional priorities.
These posts present an exciting and challenging opportunity for individuals with a strong commitment to, and enthusiasm for the UK's diverse heritage.
Eifion Pritchard, Wales Committee Member, said: “What a rewarding five years! Being able to make some contribution towards maintaining the heritage of my native land, in its broadest possible sense, has been a great privilege. The professionalism of the staff joined with the independent analysis and local knowledge of fellow committee members has, I sincerely believe, meant that the money available to HLF Wales has been well spent.”
What we are looking for
Our committee members come from varied backgrounds. Some have a professional background in the heritage sector; others for example have a community or voluntary sector background, or experience in economic regeneration, tourism, education or commercial business. We welcome interest from people with a range of backgrounds and experiences who can show they can apply their skills to, and have enthusiasm for, the position.
