The CCDI is looking for candidates to sit on the Board of the NPC and its 3 companies.

In terms of our Memorandum and Articles of Association, the NPC Board should comprise a diverse group of individuals with expertise and experience in:

  • the craft, design, design education and manufacturing sectors; socio-economic and sustainable development; business and entrepreneurial education; urban, peri-urban and rural community development; public and private sector; policy development in the spheres of economic development, tourism, arts and culture; and any other specific expertise the Board may identify from time to time.

Our three companies require candidates with expertise in procurement, marketing, corporate training and investment finance and we are looking for individuals with good networks and experience in the private sector.



Individuals and organisations within the broad creative industries and related sectors in South Africa are invited to submit nominations for individuals who have one or a combination of the above experience and/or skills in the available categories.


No previous Board experience is necessary, however individuals need to be motivated and committed to actively engage in meetings and preparation; willing to represent the interests of the sector as a whole and not their own needs; and have a sound understanding of the priorities and mandate of the CCDI.


It should be noted that CCDI Board members do not receive any remuneration.


Should you be interested in volunteering to serve on either the CCDI NPC Board of Directors or the Boards of any of the 3 companies, or would like to nominate someone for a seat on any of these Boards, please contact CCDI’s Operations Manager, Lynne Taylor, on to request a nomination form. 


Please note that the closing date for nominations is Friday 24 March 2017
