An opportunity to join our Welsh Committee

Children experiencing the Big Pit Museum, Wales

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.
