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 6,000 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. We are recruiting for two new Trustees and a Company Secretary with the energy, enthusiasm and commitment to help us achieve our objectives. We are particularly keen to recruit people from diverse backgrounds who have, or are keen to develop, one or more of the following core skills and qualities: A strong commitment to wildlife conservation, nature recovery and the Vision of the Trust; The ability to apply clear logical thinking and creativity to developing our strategy.

Hence, we also welcome applications from individuals without previous experience who are looking to develop the skills in the role. The Board As a registered charity, HWT operates as a company limited by guarantee – hence the Trustees of the charity are also the Board of Directors for the company. The Board is responsible for setting the strategy and policies of HWT, and guides and supports the Chief Executive and other staff as appropriate. Trustees are expected to attend up to 10 formal meetings a year as well as annual workshops and training opportunities. At present most meetings are held by Zoom. Face to face meetings, when they resume, are held at Queenswood Country Park. Trustees are reimbursed for the reasonable expenses of fulfilling their duties. Herefordshire Wildlife Trust is part of The Wildlife Trusts - a federation of 46 Trusts covering the UK. We aim to create a movement of diverse, inclusive and effective leaders who embrace the challenge of increasing our diversity and the contribution diversity makes to our movement. We particularly welcome applications from young people, people from BAME backgrounds and people with disabilities. Full induction, training and support will be provided.
