Essex Wildlife Trust is the county’s leading conservation charity. It has more than 36,700 and members, manages and protects over 8,400 acres of land on 87 nature reserves and 2 nature parks and runs 11 visitor centres. The aim of Essex Wildlife Trust is to Protect Wildlife for the Future and for the People of Essex. It is supported financially by members, local businesses and grant making organisations. It is one of the largest of the 47 county wildlife trusts that work together throughout the British Isles as The Wildlife Trusts.

These volunteering opportunities have arisen as a response to the recent significant growth of Essex Wildlife Sales Ltd.

In this role you will, through your expert knowledge, feed into the strategy of the Sales Board and support it to pursue its purpose: to support EWT financially in a way that also supports the purpose and ethos of the Charity and to increase footfall into areas that act as gateways to greater knowledge of the natural world, and therefore supporting the Trust to fulfil its charitable aims.

There are normally four board meetings per annum. These currently take place during the day but this could be flexed to suit.There is some preparation for meetings and there will be some actions points to follow up from the meetings.

If you have substantial senior level experience of managing in a retail or/and a catering environment and would like to be influential in the exciting future of the organisation, then please do get in contact with us.
