Herefordshire Wildlife Trust (HWT) is a wildlife conservation charity dedicated to protecting the special wildlife in Herefordshire and encouraging people to enjoy, care for and act for nature. We own and manage 55 Nature Reserves across the county and have over 5,200 members. Our 2020 Vision for Wildlife aims to place nature’s recovery at the forefront of tackling the climate emergency - for wildlife itself, for the natural services it provides and for everyone’s wellbeing.

  • The ability to apply clear logical thinking and creativity to developing our strategy.
  • The ability to work effectively in a team, with different areas of expertise, to govern the Trust;
