Yorkshire Wildlife Trust


Volunteer • Part Time

Sectors: conservation & wildlife

Closing date: Friday, 19th August 2022  

Could you be one of our new Trustees? Are you passionate about Yorkshire’s wildlife?

We are looking for new Trustees to join our Board in October. We are looking for individuals who share our vision of creating a Yorkshire rich in wildlife, making Yorkshire that little bit wilder and bringing people closer to nature.

“Our Trustees have a key leadership role at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, setting the direction of the organisation and helping us achieve our aims. Becoming a trustee means taking on a voluntary role using your skills to support and guide the charity to achieve agreed vision and goals,”

Jo Webb, Chair of Trustees.

You can expect to commit around 5 hours a month to Trust affairs, preparing for and attending meetings. The role can be demanding at times but deeply rewarding and you will be part of a friendly, energetic team. As a new Trustee you will receive support through Trustee induction meetings, training, and peer to peer mentoring to help you in your role.

Whether you are an experienced Trustee or looking to take your first step at Board level, we want to hear from you! Women, black, Asian and minority groups are under-represented on the Board, so we particularly encourage applications from these groups.

Closing date for expressions of interest: 12pm Friday 19th August.

We are committed to creating a Movement that recognises and truly values individual differences and identities. We value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone is able to be themselves and to reach their full potential. We want our people to flourish, just like nature.
