Trustee Vacancy – Museum of Cornish Life

The Museum of Cornish Life has been serving the town of Helston and the larger surrounding area since 1949 and is managed by South Kerrier Heritage Trust, (Charity Number 1151834).

The trustees have important responsibilities and we are looking for new trustees with the vision to help us realise our future development plans. They must be passionate about ensuring that this much-loved museum attracts wide-ranging audiences and continues to contribute to the region’s culture and economy. Most of all, they are interested in individuals who can think strategically, be ambitious, and see the big picture. This as a voluntary post.

They are particularly looking for people with experience and skills in the following areas: finance, basic secretarial/minute taker, legal knowledge, or education. However if you just have a strong desire to help the Museum they would still like to hear from you. Previous experience of being a trustee, or within a charity is not required and a full induction to the role is offered. They meet monthly.

This is an opportunity to join the museum at an exciting point in its history and a chance for the successful applicants to utilise their experience and skills to help shape its future development.

To find out more about the museum and the role, or for an informal chat,  please contact Judith Haycock, Chair of Trustees on 01326 563870 or email

Alternatively application forms are available from the Museum of Cornish Life email

Closing date: Saturday 15th December 2018
