Mission Gallery is looking for an experienced individual to join our Board of Directors as Secretary.

Mission Gallery delivers broad ranging exhibition and education programmes, presenting contemporary visual and applied arts and crafts at its historical venue in Swansea’s maritime quarter. We work closely with emerging and established artists to exhibit and to teach a dynamic breadth of practice. It is an exciting time in the development of Mission Gallery as an organisation, as we work to grow the partnerships and communities with whom we collaborate. We are seeking a new Secretary to join our dedicated and experienced Board of Directors, someone who can bring knowledge and enthusiasm to help support our team. 


The Secretary will work closely with the Chair, Vice Chair and Treasurer of the Board of Directors as well as with the Creative Director of Mission Gallery. Broadly, the role of the Secretary is to be responsible for:

  • ensuring the efficient running of the Board, including the issue of notices of meetings, preparation of agenda, circulation of papers and producing minutes to record Board business

  • monitoring decisions and ensuring compliance with the Memorandum and Articles and other relevant policies

  • advising Directors on their duties.


This is an opportunity to work with a dedicated team, keen to grow provision for local communities and to create possibilities for the professional arts sector in Wales, and beyond. It is a chance to be part of a committed Board of Directors who, with the staff team, are passionate advocates for Mission Gallery and for its potential.



The role is voluntary. Reasonable expenses relating to Board activity will be covered. The time commitment is variable, but is expected to be equivalent to a maximum of two days per month; less is likely.
