Synergy is recruiting: New trustees

Synergy is looking to appoint new trustees to the Board who will bring a passion for arts and social justice and a belief in the transformative power of theatre to support the ongoing work of the organisation and to help shape the future growth and direction of the company.

We are interested in people who have knowledge and experience in:

  • Law
  • Finance
  • Digital media
  • Prison pathways/Probation
  • Social Enterprise
  • Artistic programming

We are committed to bringing together people with diverse skills, knowledge, and experience to reflect the work of the company and the change we seek to make. Some groups are under-represented on our board so we would particularly welcome applications from:

  • People with lived experience of the criminal justice system. This may include people who have convictions, have served a prison or community sentence, or have family members in prison
  • Members of the Global Majority

For full information, please download the recruitment pack.

Application procedure

Please express your interest by sending us your CV, a completed equal opportunities monitoring form (which will be separated from your application and kept anonymised) and a short letter (max. one page) telling us why you are interested in becoming a trustee and how your skills, knowledge, and experience — professional and lived — could support Synergy’s work. Alternatively, you can send us a video or audio message or presentation instead of a letter. We are happy to receive your expression of interest in whatever form works best for you. Please send to

Please contact us if you require any further assistance. We will support any access requirements you have during the recruitment process and ensure that reasonable adjustments are in place.

If you need any further information or would like to discuss the role in advance of applying, please get in touch.
