WWT Charity Trustees

We have recently set out an ambitious vision for the next 25 years. To help us fulfil these ambitions, we are looking for new, experienced and committed Trustees to play an essential role in the governance and development of the charity. We are seeking Trustees with skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Wetland conservation
  • Communications and media
  • Inspiring education and engagement

You need not have been a charity trustee before, but you will have experience of participating at a senior level.

Together with the other Trustees on the Council, you will have ultimate responsibility for the strategic direction of the charity and for ensuring WWT is effectively delivering wetland conservation. You will ensure WWT complies with charity law and is well-run.

You will be willing and able to travel to WWT’s sites around the UK for the quarterly meetings. This position is entirely voluntary and is therefore unpaid. Full travel and accommodation expenses will be reimbursed and applications from across the UK are welcome.

We are also looking for expert advisors for the Trading board and would like to hear from you if you have significant experience in improving results in commercial operations particularly retail, catering and visitor attractions.

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is a conservation charity that protects wetlands for wildlife and people. For 70 years we have been pioneers in saving threatened wetland wildlife across the globe and are experts in wetland management and creation. We believe that showing people first-hand how amazing wetlands are can ignite their passion to help us conserve them, so we provide amazing experiences at our unique UK wetland centres for over one million visitors every year.

If you are interested in applying, please forward your CV together with a one-page covering letter setting out which of the above roles you are interested in and why to Sam Hodgkinson, Volunteering Administration Officer (volunteering@wwt.org.uk) by the closing date of 27 July 2019.

Candidates will be short-listed based on the required skills and experience listed above, and interviews will then be held in late September.
