The latest Trustee call

We’re calling for new Trustees to step up who share our values and can carry on the work of those who came before. But, we’d also like members to identify, bring forward and vote for candidates with specific skills that will best support the Trust's governance. People with fresh ideas from more diverse backgrounds will also be vital if we are to remain relevant and influential in the coming years.

Seven Trustee places become vacant on our Board in 2020. Any member is welcome to stand and we aim to make the process as straight forward as possible. Our 'How to apply to be a Trustee' document explains the five simple steps needed to apply.

The Trustee nomination process will close on Tuesday 3 March 2020 at midday.

If you'd like to express an interest or discuss any aspect of becoming a Trustee ahead of applying you can also contact Kevin Lelland, Head of Development and Communciations. You can e-mail him or call him on 01796 484 939. He can talk through any questions you have and or put you directly in touch with current Trustees.

Fresh skills, knowledge and perspectives

Being a Trustee is a way of helping to shape the work of the Trust, and of contributing your skills and knowledge to areas of work from conservation and lobbying government to financial management. The Board of Trustees needs a wide range of skills. On this occasion the Trust would particularly welcome people expert in human resources; outdoor learning and education; fundraising; digital marketing; communications; and visitor or retail management. We would also particularly like to see more women coming forward, as well as members from across all age groups and ethnic backgrounds from across the UK.
