Who we are
At Sea-Changers, the ocean is our passion. We are a volunteer run charity aiming to raise thousands of pounds for marine conservation in the UK. Our vision is to create a world where the seas and shores are clean and healthy and marine species are protected. What makes us different is how we raise the money for this important work. We aim to harness the energy, good will and resources of sea-users to create a sea-change in the amount of funding available for marine conservation.
Since 2011 we have given out over 350 small grants to UK based marine conservation projects….each one creating sea-change.
We are a UK marine conservation charity, managed by a small team of volunteers who love the UK’s seas, shores and wildlife. We give grants to UK marine charities and non-profits for conservation and research projects. We work with businesses and individuals to raise funds via bespoke corporate partnerships, online giving, eBay auctions, sponsored events and individual donations. Sea-Changers enables businesses to deliver their corporate social responsibility and to demonstrate care for the marine environment through charitable giving. We make it easy for those with a concern for the sea, and its future, to give something back.
We are looking for a person with the relevant knowledge gained from life and work. You will need a high level of personal integrity, have lots of passion for our work and for the health of the seas and shores.
We are particularly interested in people who can lead our Board through a time of significant growth and change as we develop from an organisation run entirely by volunteers, towards a more sustainable future model. This will require your commitment to Sea-Changers and a willingness to devote the necessary time and effort in a flexible way.
We would particularly welcome applications from people from a minority ethnic background.
