Job Description

Charity Directors

The work of the Forest of Avon Trust is overseen by 6 Charity Directors and we are looking to expand this leadership team, by recruiting an additional Trust Director, as well replacing one who has completed 10 years’ service.   

Our Charity Directors come from varied backgrounds, including business, higher education and landowning. Whilst previous charitable or non-executive directorship experience would be an advantage, it is not critical. We do however need people who work/ have worked a senior level and can commit a couple of hours each week to the role, as well as attending twice-yearly board meetings.

We are recruiting the following Forest of Avon Trust Directors:

Finance Director

Providing advice on and input to the Trust’s financial policies, accounts and to the Executive Director as required. Working with other Directors to oversee and help shape the work of the Charity. 

Legal Director

Providing advice on and input to the Trust’s policies and procedures, and to the Executive Director as required. Working with other Directors to oversee and help shape the work of the Charity.

These positions are unpaid voluntary roles, working mainly from home, with twice yearly board meetings in the Bristol area and also involving regular liaison with the Forest of Avon Trust Executive Director.

Appointments are initially for 1 year. Each would provide invaluable experience of charity governance, project management and the fulfilment that would come from helping this charity grow further.
