Trustee Call Out

Citymoves Dance Agency SCIO is a regional dance charity based in Aberdeen, in the North East of Scotland. Our charitable purpose is to lead positive impacts through dance. The organisation was established as an independent Scottish charity in 2015.

We’re committed to making continued improvements to how we work, across all parts of the organisation. We strive to remove barriers so that people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds can experience the benefits of a life enriched by dance. We welcome a diversity of perspectives in the work that we support, the classes we teach, the talent we nurture, and the people we recruit. We believe this makes us an organisation that is stronger and more meaningful to the communities we serve.

The next period will see us deepening our commitment to artists, audiences, and participants across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, and thinking about how we best serve our communities.

About the role

Citymoves’ trustees are responsible for the governance and strategy of the charity. We welcome applications at any time, from individuals with a variety of skills. Experience in any one or more of the below areas would be particularly welcome:

  • Campaigning/lobbying

  • Finance and fundraising

  • Knowledge of the local Aberdeen ecology

  • Running an arts or community organisation

  • Work with Children and Young People, including early years education, and children-at-risk

We welcome both new and experienced trustees from across the UK. We are interested in people who are enthusiastic about learning, and who would like to contribute to the development of dance in the North East of Scotland.

Time commitment

Trustees are expected to attend the quarterly Board Meetings and one strategic away-day per year. We also have a Finance Committee who meet quarterly, and an Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Working Group. Other working groups are formed subject to need. Meetings are held on Zoom.

This is a voluntary, 3-year appointment, with reasonable travel expenses covered. We also have a learning budget and are committed to supporting the development of our Trustees.

How to apply

Please email us at with your CV and covering letter for consideration by the Board. Please confirm in your email that you are not disqualified from acting as a charity trustee.
