RWA Team abseil for art

Our Jobs and Opportunities



The RWA currently has vacancies for Trustees to join its board.

We are particularly looking for a Chartered Accountant with business experience and awareness of the non-profit sector. We are also seeking trustees with experience in Property management; Architecture; Fundraising; Education or youth work; Human Resources, and/or Media/PR.

The Board meets six times a year with subcommittee meetings in between. Trustees are also invited to RWA events and work closely with the Director and her senior staff. The board may be up to 15 people (currently ten) including three Academicians. We are committed to attracting and recruiting diverse candidates.

If you have a passion for art and you can bring experience to the Board – in the stated areas or others – then please send an expression of interest to the Director, Alison Bevan.



Volunteers are essential to all that we do at the RWA. We aim to empower, engage and equip everyone who takes part in our volunteering programme.
