Summary

Could you become a Trustee and help to make a Wilder Hertfordshire and Middlesex?

Detailed description

The Trust is committed to seeing more land in recovery for nature and more people taking action for wildlife. We recognise the importance of a healthy natural environment to people’s wellbeing and to addressing climate impacts. We are looking for two exceptional people to join our Board of Trustees.

 

As a Trustee, you will join us as we celebrate 60 years of the Trust. So much has been achieved over this time, but the need to stand up for wildlife is as important as ever, and your expertise will help achieve our strategic goals.

 

You would oversee our strategy, risk management and financial sustainability, and be an advocate for the Trust, playing a vital role in influencing our supporters, partners, funders and key stakeholders. You will provide advice and support to the dedicated and highly skilled staff team who run the organisation day-to-day, stand up for nature, and deliver on our objectives. You will need to have a passion for ensuring a positive future for wildlife, and be able to think strategically. You will need to attend quarterly Council meetings and the AGM.

 

We are a welcoming and open organisation, committed to the principles of Equality Diversity and Inclusion. While all applications will be considered on merit, we would strongly encourage anyone from a minority background to consider applying as we need all perspectives if we are to succeed in our mission. More generally, we would particularly like to hear from people who have skills in one or more of the following areas – ecology, land management, business development, and philanthropic giving.

 

Trustees can be appointed for up to three consecutive three-year terms. This is a voluntary role but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

 

If you’d like to help make a difference for wildlife in Herts and Middlesex as one of our Trustees, please contact Becky Vernon-Clinch for an information pack.

 

Closing date: 9am on Monday 22 April

Interviews: Thursday 9 May

About Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust

Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust works to create more space for nature and inspire and enable people to take action. With over 23,000 members and 600 volunteers, and working closely with farmers, local authorities, community and conservation organisations, we play a leading role in nature’s recovery.

The Trust believes that wildlife should be able to thrive alongside our everyday lives and that everyone benefits from having access to nature. If we work together as a community, nature will recover and we will create a greener, sustainable and wilder future.

As part of the national federation of 46 Wildlife Trusts, our influence is far-reaching and we play a vital role in standing up for wildlife.
