Appointment of Treasurer and Trustees

Are you passionate about a thriving future for people and nature?
The world’s leading independent conservation organisation, WWF is a global network working in more than 100 counties to stop the decline of our planet’s natural environment and to build a future where people live in harmony with nature. We are challenging, constructive and science based and address issues from the survival of species and habitats to climate change, sustainable business and environment education. We are an organisation that makes a difference.
We are currently seeking to appoint up to three Trustees, including a Treasurer, to join the Board. We are looking for committed individuals who will bring their professional expertise and skills to help the WWF-UK deliver its mission effectively, by overseeing the overall policies and objectives of the organisation and by ensuring that the work of the organisation is monitored and evaluated effectively.
The new Trustees will be individuals of exceptional calibre and will have a demonstrated interest in, and passion for, conservation issues and the global environmental agenda. They will be able to demonstrate strong intellectual and independent judgement skills, experience of strategic decision-making, and the ability to operate effectively at Board level or equivalent. In addition, they will bring a strong track record of distinguished achievement in their chosen fields.
