Hijinx, a not-for-profit professional theatre company, casts learning disabled actors in award-winning productions which tour the world.

We have a network of 60+ trained actors around Wales who have learning and developmental disabilities including Down’s Syndrome, Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.

The Board of Trustees for Hijinx is looking to recruit up to four new trustees to support and champion the company as it continues to grow and challenge, collectively providing expertise and advice to steer the charity’s strategy and oversee its management and governance.

We are looking for experienced individuals who are excited by our mission to pioneer, produce and promote opportunities for neurodivergent actors and share our values of integrity, ambition, equity and excellence.

We are particularly interested in hearing from applicants with a background in:

  • Theatre
  • Community Arts / Participation
  • Film & Television
  • Fundraising

Hijinx is committed to ensuring an equitable working environment. We actively seek board members to reflect a multitude of experiences and backgrounds. We particularly encourage applications from BAME, LGBTQ+ and people with a disability.
