Welcome from our Chair of Trustees – Paul Bowden

 

Thank you for thinking about offering your time and skills to support the National Justice Museum.

 

The National Justice Museum is an independent museum and public legal education provider, delivering education programmes nationally.  We are based in Nottingham’s Grade II* former Shire Hall and County Gaol, featuring historic courtrooms, a police station and exhibitions exploring the history of justice.  We house a nationally significant collection exploring the Criminal Justice System over the last two centuries.  We empower audiences, providing opportunities to gain knowledge and understanding of the law and justice system.

 

We also operate the City of Caves, an attraction central to the economic regeneration of the city within the Broadmarsh site, which is a key part of the vision for this part of the city.

 

Our attractions are key to Nottingham’s tourist economy, attracting visitors who spend time in the city boosting the local economy.  In 2018 we became an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation (NPO).  We are gaining recognition nationally for work on representing and including diverse audiences; building a reputation for taking the museum out to people, engaging with community partners and becoming more accessible to a wider range of people.  We are in the process of applying to continue being an NPO in the next round of Arts Council funding, 2023-2025.

 

Our public legal education work is central to our purpose and we operate these programmes in our courtrooms in Nottingham, at the Royal Courts of Justice and the Rolls Building in London and across many sites in the North West.  The pandemic meant that we also created digital, online programmes for schools which have been popular and continue now.  In 2019 we entered into a partnership with The Ben Kinsella Trust to deliver ‘Choices and Consequences’, a key programme educating young people about the dangers of knife crime.

 

We have recently revisited our purpose, mission, values and aims which you will find later in this document as we felt these needed updating to reflect the journey that the organisation has been on over the last four years.  This process was led by an external facilitator with the Trustees and Executive and widened out for consultation with our whole team.  We feel that it is truly representative now of who we are and what we do.

 

Thank you for your interest in supporting us. For more information and the recruitment pack please visit https://www.nationaljusticemuseum.org.uk/museum/jobs/finance-trustee
