The British Glass Foundation is looking for Directors

Inviting you to be part of our 400 year glass making heritage.

BGF Trading Limited is the trading company of the main charity, British Glass Foundation, through which all the commercial transactions from the White House Cone Museum of Glass will pass, e.g. sales from the museum shop and rental income from the business units.
We are currently looking to recruit new directors with the following experience:
• Property experience – technical knowledge on managing property; a Chartered Surveyor or someone with legal knowledge of the property market.
• Promotional/marketing/visitor attraction/event management skills.
• General business knowledge e.g. financial or legal experience.
Becoming a Director offers a rewarding and stimulating opportunity to get involved in the development of this brand new glass museum, White House Cone - museum of glass. We are aware that as we grow and develop as a business the requirement to attract and grow our visitor base is essential. The role is unpaid although expenses will be reimbursed.
It is envisaged that meetings will be held four times a year to review the progress of the operation and to offer intellect, guidance and critique.
We welcome applications from individuals from all backgrounds, particularly those with proven marketing and legal experience, who can enrich our organisation by bringing their knowledge and acumen to the table.
If you would like to apply or would like further details or an informal chat please contact Graham Knowles, Chairman of British Glass Foundation, email: or telephone 01384 239019.
