Looking for Trustees

The Sheffield General Cemetery Trust is looking for new Trustees to join our team and help run this organisation.

The Sheffield General Cemetery is a fascinating and historic 13 acre green space in the heart of Sheffield, which offers something for everyone. Opened in 1836 it is home to 87 000 residents who helped build the City of Sheffield as well as 10 listed monuments including a grade 2 * listed landscape and the restored Samuel Worth Chapel, which is available to hire. There is also a recently opened holiday let in the equally historic Gatehouse just off Ecclesall Road. The Sheffield General Cemetery Trust is responsible for organising a wide range of events, currently supported by more than 60 volunteers and 5 paid members of staff.  More about our history and research.

The Sheffield General Cemetery Trust is a Charity and these new Trustee positions are voluntary with a usual commitment of a monthly meeting but with many other possibilities for involvement as well. Ideally the Sheffield General Cemetery Trust is looking for three potential Trustees with organisational level experience in general and in either Human Resources, Health and Safety and Heritage [landscape/buildings] in particular. As a relatively small organisation, successful applicants for these positions have the opportunity to make a real difference.

If these opportunities are of interest to you please submit a CV including the names of two referees with a short covering letter to Tracey Harrison-marr at [email protected] and for further information please contact Dave Hunt at [email protected]
