Could you lead Warwickshire Wildlife Trust? We need new trustees!

Key duties include governance of the Trust, setting and overseeing of strategic direction, maintaining financial stability, accountability to members and the Charities Commission and upholding the conduct and culture of the organisation.

It is then up to our amazing staff to run the Trust’s operations.

We support a diverse range of local wildlife and habitats, and we also recognise the importance of diversity in our staff, volunteers and members. The Trust is looking for new volunteer trustees, and these roles are open to everyone – particularly those with diverse backgrounds, abilities and identities.

Crishni Waring says: I am currently one of 11 trustees, attending five Council meetings per year. Trustees are also expected to support staff in developing key objectives and act as public ambassadors for the Trust. No previous experience as a trustee is necessary, but an interest in wildlife and the natural environment and a wish to connect people with nature is essential. 

We are especially looking for people with experience in:

  • Marketing
  • Land management/agriculture
  • Campaigning
  • Fundraising
  • Company Secretary (legal background helpful but not essential)

But this list isn’t exhaustive. We need people who are committed representatives of the Trust, and who are passionate about helping us build on the progress made in our first 50 years.

For an informal discussion or to find out more about any of these roles, please contact me at the email below. Thank you!

“I’ve been a member for 35 years, a volunteer for ten, and bringing the children since 1984 –so the Trust is a fixture in our lives. Becoming a trustee was the logical progression and I’ve enjoyed it.’
