The Trust is led by our CEO (Chief Executive Officer), Simon Nash who reports to the Board of Trustees and is responsible for the day to day running of the Trust.
The Trust employs about 50 full and part time staff who are all strongly committed to the work of the charity and its work for Somerset’s natural world. Some members of staff have been with the Trust for many years, others are employed for shorter periods on specific projects. Our paid staff are often assisted by volunteers who allow us to do things we could not otherwise do.
