Who we are

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is a conservation charity that protects wetlands for wildlife and people. At WWT we believe wetlands are key in helping us meet our most pressing environmental challenges. Wetlands can help us repair our environment by boosting biodiversity, storing carbon and protecting us from flooding and pollution. Managed sustainably for both nature and people, wetlands can support livelihoods and local economies. This is why for over 75 years, we have been pioneers in saving threatened wetland wildlife across the globe and are experts in wetland management and creation.

We have an ambitious vision for the next 25 years. The escalating crisis for our climate and the natural world not only poses threats to our wetland nature but to the livelihoods and wellbeing of people. We have an opportunity to do things differently and build back better. Experienced and committed Trustees play an essential role in the governance of the charity.  We are looking for new Trustees with skills and experience to help us fulfil these ambitions

We are looking for people with a fascination in the natural world – particularly wetlands.

You need not have been a charity trustee before, but you will have experience of participating at a senior level.  You are able to follow, participate and influence complex strategic discussions and make pragmatic decisions.  You might find your employer supports you having a strategic role with another organisation.

We are looking for people with very high levels of integrity and to be appointed as a Trustee you cannot have been disqualified from acting as a charity trustee or serving as a company director, been convicted of dishonesty or fraud or be an undischarged bankrupt.

If you are interested in applying, please forward your CV with a one-page covering letter to Natasha Gornall at [email protected] by the 31st July.

Candidates will be short-listed in August, with interviews to follow on the 25/26th August in London, followed by 2nd interviews on the 29th/30th September at Slimbridge in Gloucestershire.
