A trustee's main job is to ensure that a trust or charity, such as The Photographers' Gallery, is well-managed and runs smoothly. This is a volunteer role and trustees meet together, several times a year, to support and champion an organisation.

Elspeth Walker is an Emerging Career Trustee at The Photographers' Gallery since 2021. In this event, she will unpack the role of a Trustee. You will learn more about what's expected of this role and, in turn, what you might gain from being a Trustee.

If you are interested in applying for an Emerging Career Trustee role at The Photographers' Gallery, you're encouraged to attend this event and to view our recruitment pack here.

Please note: Although the Develop programme is open to 18-24-year-olds, this special event that ties into a recruitment opportunity for Emerging Career Trustees. To apply, you must be in the 18–30 age bracket between 1 December 2024 and 30 September 2026.
