We are Recruiting for a

Volunteer Trustee

Signals is seeking new volunteer trustees to diversify and bring additional skills to the board.



Signals is a registered charity and a limited liability company established 35 years ago. It specialises in filmmaking and digital arts for social, learning and creative outputs. Signals works across the region but with a focus on Essex.


Signals works with children, young people, artists and community groups supporting creativity and learning at all levels. Signals is committed to increasing equal access to digital and creative experiences.  Signals vision is to positively impact peoples’ lives by encouraging creativity, developing skills and raising aspirations through creative digital production and education. This work is increasingly relevant in supporting those left behind in a digital age. Current projects include working with local migrant communities, disability groups and communities in Harwich.


We are looking for trustees with the following specific skills:


  • legal
  • financial/accountancy skills
  • marketing
  • community work fundraising
  • building management skills
  • those who might be interested in chair or vice chair roles in the future 

Signals is committed to equality and diversity and welcomes applications from all members of the community particularly from those currently under-represented on the board including Tendring residents and people from the global majority.


The time commitment for trustees is the attendance at quarterly evening meetings (approx. 2 hours per meeting) inclusive of the AGM, occasional attendance of subcommittee and ad hoc meetings. Trustees will also be expected to review a range of reports and strategy documents and review and develop policy.


If you are interested and wish to have an informal discussion about how you could be involved as a trustee then please contact Signals Director, Rachel Hipkiss on 01206 560255 or email a copy of your CV to: info@signals.org.uk


We look forward to hearing from you.
