We are looking for a member for the Board of the Freud Museum London with financial skills and expertise.

This experienced and enthusiastic new Trustee will join a team providing strategic leadership to the Museum at a time of great change and development.

Eligible candidates will need to be qualified accountants with a recognised accounting and finance qualification, as well as a proven ability to communicate and explain financial information to members of the Board and other stakeholders. Knowledge and experience of charities accounting would also be useful.

Candidates will need to show evidence of the ability to think strategically, to review and question management reports, plans and financial information, to assess and manage risk, and to develop sound objectives moving forward to ensure an exciting and sustainable future for the Museum. The new trustee should be willing to be involved in development and fundraising initiatives.

The Freud Museum is a unique and special place, and an awareness and interest in the work of the Museum, of the lives of Sigmund and Anna Freud, and the history of psychoanalysis, would be welcome.

Board meetings are held five times a year, usually on a Tuesday evening, at the Museum, or virtually. The Finance Trustee will also be a member of the Finance and General Purposes Committee of the Board. Trustees are encouraged to attend museum events.
