We’re looking for a new Trustee!

The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales manages some of the region’s most precious wild places.

Our mission is to rebuild biodiversity and engage people with their environment, by:

  • Creating and enhancing wildlife havens within and outside nature reserves, particularly by creating Living Landscapes and Living Seas
  • Inspiring people about the natural world and helping them enjoy and protect it.
  • Publicly standing up for wildlife and the environment

This year the Board has one vacancy and is looking for someone with a high-level, professional conservation background to complement the existing professional skills of the Board.

We want to build a diverse and inclusive Board that reflects the membership and communities that we serve.  So if you are over 18, and would like to use your skills and experience at Board level to help us help wildlife, then we would love to hear from you.  We would also like to continue to have a good geographical representation on the Board and welcome applications from all areas.

Trustees are unpaid volunteers and do not usually receive expenses.  The commitment is to attend Board meetings (about 6 a year, usually on a Monday evening in Bridgend and 2 Saturdays at any of the Trust venues) as well as volunteering some spare time to help develop the Trust’s work and to occasionally attend other meetings or events.

The term of appointment is for up to three years in the first instance, although there is the opportunity to be co-opted to the Board for an initial term of one year.

Wildlife Trust staff are deeply committed to their work in protecting wildlife and ably supported by many dedicated volunteers including Trustees.  We have a lot of work to do, and being a Trustee can feel demanding at times, but it is deeply rewarding and you will be part of a friendly and energetic team.

Please download the Information about being a Trustee and the Code of Conduct.

The deadline for applications to join the Board for the AGM 2019 is  Friday 23rd August 2019.  

Our current Trustees would be delighted to talk informally to anyone interested in applying.  Please contact Diana Clark, who would be happy to set up a meeting or phone call with an existing Trustee to discuss the role.
