Chair of Audit Committee


We are looking for a new trustee to join our Board and be the Chair of our Audit Committee at a transformational moment in the history of the Geffrye Museum of the Home. The Museum exists to reveal and rethink the ways we live in order to live better together. We’re a space to explore the home – past, present and future – and are developing our brand to diversify our audiences and expand our reach. We want our collections, content and programming to spark ideas and conversation on the most relevant issues of our time, working in partnership to be a force for social change. To achieve this, the museum is in the final stages of delivering an £18.1 million capital development project, Unlocking the Geffrye, to open up the Grade 1 listed almshouse buildings and period gardens to many more visitors and launch new spaces for enjoyment, creativity and learning. The project also provides the museum with a new café / restaurant and other spaces to grow our commercial offer, generating income streams which will be critical for the museum’s future stability and growth.
