The Vagabond Trustee board are currently seeking additional Trustees to join our small team.
Vagabond is a Milton Keynes based film-related charity. We have been operating for over 10 years contributing creative opportunities to the arts sector in the city.

We organise regular film screenings, including the Vagabond Film Festival, as well as working with local filmmakers through the Milton Keynes Film Network (MKFN).

MKFN organises regular networking opportunities with local filmmakers as well as supporting filmmaking through our regular 48 Hour Film Challenges and locally made Vagabond supported short films.

Vagabond have just pilotted our first ‘Filmmaking in Schools’ programme, to bring creative opportunities to school pupils, a project we hope to extend to schools across the city.

We are currently seeking one or more Trustees:

Trustee - Treasurer

We are seeking a Trustee with some basic bookeeping experience to help us manage and report our finances to the accountants and the Trustees.

This role would ideally suit someone who has some basic knowledge of bookeeping. A love of film and/or the creative sector would also be an advantage.

The role would not require much time, just enough to keep track of incoming / outgoings and be able to report these to the board of Trustees in our board meetings and provide these to our accountancy firm at the end of the tax year.  It shouldn’t exceed an hour or two of time each month.

Trustee - Filmmaking in Schools

We’ve just finished organising our pilot “Filmmaking in Schools” programme, thanks to a grant from Milton Keynes council.

We’re seeking a Trustee to help take this forward and oversee a new funding application and rollout of this exciting project to other schools in the area.

The feedback we received from the students during the pilot programme showed us how important this creative activity can be to young people finding their voice through a creative outlet like filmmaking.

Trustee - Others

We are also seeking other Trustees to help provide advice and other expertise as we grow and develop new projects.

These areas include:

  • Organising film events
  • Fundraising (grant applications advice)
  • Sponsorship advice
  • Filmmakers events

We are a small but friendly team, who love film and filmmaking.

This would be a great opportunity for people who want to get more involved in the local creative sector and some fun projects.

Trustees are unpaid, although there are occasional paid opportunities on certain projects. We’re a very friendly team and you’d become part of the cultural development of Milton Keynes moving forward.

If you’d like to apply, please send your CV and covering letter to: by Sunday 19th September 2021.
