Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust

Trustee opportunities with Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust

Are you passionate about your local wildlife?
Would you like to join us in shaping and driving our vision for a wilder Leicestershire and Rutland?

If you answered “yes” to the above, we would love to hear from you!

Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust is the leading conservation membership charity in our two counties, and as we work to implement our ambitious new strategy for nature recovery in Leicestershire and Rutland, our Council needs to reflect a wide range of skills and expertise.

We are therefore looking for enthusiastic and committed people who share our values and vision to join our Trustee Council. All relevant experience will be considered, but in this round of recruitment, we would be particularly interested in hearing from applicants who have skills, knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas:

• Public relations and media
• Conservation management policy and/or practice
• Community outreach and youth engagement
• Large-scale grant funding
• Big Data management, visualisation and impact measurement.

Our Trustees (who are also company directors) work collectively on the Council with responsibility for governing and directing how the Trust is managed and run. The roles are voluntary and unpaid and, whilst prior experience of the trustee role is not required (and training is available), we are looking for people who are willing and able to commit time to both a programme of regular meetings and ongoing engagement in a range of Trustee Council activities.

Diversity within our Trustees group is essential. As a progressive charitable organisation, we champion equal opportunities and welcome applications from all sections of the community, regardless of any protected characteristic.

For more information about the Trust and this exciting opportunity, please visit our website www.lrwt.org.uk/trustees to view the application pack and job description.
The pack will also give more details about the application process.

The closing date for this round of Trustee recruitment is 30th June 2024.

We look forward to hearing from you.
