Director of the Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust

The Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust is part of the national network of River Trusts and it covers five main rivers – Swale, Ure, Nidd, Wharfe and Ouse. It has grown over the last few years and there is now an exciting opportunity to take over the leadership of the Trust and guide it through its further development.

The Director will assume executive responsibility for all of the work of the Trust including day-to-day management of the organisation, staff and finances. The work will require capacity building, project delivery and advocacy.

Our ideal candidate will thrive on the challenge to develop the charity. They will empathise with the aims of the Trust and recognize the challenge of working on rivers and the need for a catchment wide approach. Ideally they will have leadership experience and excellent skills in financial management, project management, communications and advocacy.
