Trustee (Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust)

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is a local charity working to protect, create and enhance spaces where people can connect with nature. We are seeking to mobilise more people than ever – a mass movement – to take action for nature and climate.

We are firmly rooted in, supported by and accountable to the communities of which we are a part. We care for 1300 hectares of nature reserves and have almost 13,000 members. For 60 years we have protected, created and enhanced some of the most important places for nature in Nottinghamshire and have developed an unparalleled knowledge of our county’s wildlife and wild places.

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our board of Trustees to help lead the charity and support the management team in driving the delivery of our vital strategy and helping us securing the resources needed to deliver our goals. Applying to become a Trustee of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is the most powerful things you can do to support nature recovery in Nottinghamshire.

Several Trustees will retire or come to the end of their terms in the near future. We will also be looking to appoint a Chair elect to shadow our current Chair from November. We have identified a set of skills and experience that would benefit the organisation. We are looking for people with broad experience but would particularly welcome applicants with conservation knowledge and expertise of community engagement. We are also keen to hear from people between the ages of 18 and 25 keen to be considered as a Youth Trustee.

Closing date for expressions of interest is Monday 26th June

The Trustee Role

The Council of trustees is the governing body of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust and is made up of volunteers. Our charity benefits from the objectivity such a Council brings, as well as from the skills and experience of its members. Our Trustees ensure that Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has a clear direction and purpose and a sense of urgency to carry out the work it was established to do. Council’s set clear objectives, establishes priorities, safeguards the Trust’s assets and ensures their effective use to benefit those that the organisation exists to help.
