We ask that all potential Trustees contact Graeme Mitchell, Chair, Somerset Wildlife Trust on email@example.com or Sarah Nason, Vice-Chair on firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal discussion before applying.
Your application should be sent by email to email@example.com and must be received no later than 5pm Monday 4th January 2021.
Applications can be sent in any format providing they include information found in a CV, and with a covering statement setting out your skills and experience relevant to the role description and skills we are seeking.
We are about to commit to a new ten-year strategy, which will involve more people than ever before in taking action for nature in their local communities across Somerset. We will be supporting them to help deliver nature’s recovery and working with many organisations and people to achieve this. You could be part of the team that steers our charity and its governance at a really critical time.
We are particularly interested in talking to people with specific expertise or an interest in any of the following:
- Nature-friendly / regenerative farming practices as a land or estate manager;
- Charity finance, including strategic financial planning, and business management;
- Engaging with people and new communities through a community organising approach; and
- Creating experiences through digital engagement and marketing.
You don’t have to have experience of working in the charity sector so don’t be put off if you haven’t already been a Trustee. We are looking for people who have relevant knowledge gained from life, or from your work in other sectors. You will need to bring a high level of personal integrity, have the time to commit, and heaps of energy and enthusiasm for the work of Somerset Wildlife Trust and a passion for wildlife. If this is you, and you fit the role description, then we want to hear from you.
