We are looking to appoint a new Chair of the Acceptance in Lieu (AIL) Panel

Each year the AIL Panel oversees the allocation of a budget of £40 million in tax forgone to acquire objects for public collections through the AIL and Cultural Gifts schemes.’ These schemes bring objects of exceptional cultural importance into collections where they give lasting enjoyment and inspiration to all.

As Chair of the AIL Panel, you will play a significant role in shaping the nation’s collections and will influence the direction of the schemes at this moment of recovery and renewal. The Chair of the AIL Panel will share Art Council’s values and commitment to equity and inclusion.

In this role you will:

  • play a significant part in shaping the nation’s collections
  • use and further develop your leadership skills in overseeing one of the largest public collections acquisition programmes in the country
  • influence the direction of the schemes at this moment of recovery and renewal
  • position them to maximise their impact for the sector and wider society

We are keen to hear from a wide range of people from across the UK and particularly encourage applicants who are from underrepresented groups, are based outside London and/or have achieved success through non-traditional educational routes. Arts Council is committed to building an inclusive workplace and recruiting a workforce that is as diverse as the communities we serve. However, you identify and whatever background you bring with you, we welcome you to apply for a role at Arts Council. The appointment is in consultation with the Secretary of State for the Department of Digital, Media, Culture and Sport (DCMS).
