CPRE Sussex fights for a better future for the Sussex Countryside.  We work locally to protect, shape and enhance our beautiful, thriving countryside for everyone to value and enjoy.

We aim to influence decision making on a range of environmental and land-use issues. At CPRE Sussex we have an opening on our Executive Committee for a new Trustee to help govern the charity and guide our future work, with a particular focus on fundraising strategies, leading a team of volunteer fundraisers.

Your primary trustee duties will involve:

  • setting strategies for the raising of funds through grants, donations and events 
  • overseeing volunteers working specifically to set up and manage events and raise funds through a variety of methods. 

You will also have the responsibilities in common with other Trustees, including: 

  • contributing actively to the role of the Executive Committee in giving firm strategic direction to the organisation, setting overall policy, defining goals, setting targets and evaluating performance against agreed targets. 

In addition to their statutory duties, our Trustees often get involved in other activities and responsibilities according to their specific interests, knowledge experience and time. 

What we need from you: 

You will be home-based, carrying out activities around your other commitments and attending meetings at our branch office in Blackboys, East Sussex and other locations in East and West Sussex.

You should have a proven track record of success in managing fundraising activities, preferably in a UK-based charity.
