Job Description

The Chagos Conservation Trust (CCT) is a UK charity that conducts and promotes conservation work and scientific and historical research in the Chagos Archipelago, a UK Overseas Territory. We are largely voluntary with the board of trustees made up from a diverse group of scientists, conservationists, campaigners and finance specialists with one thing in common: working to conserve the Chagos Archipelago.

The Chagos Archipelago is made up of a collection of over 55 islands and coral reefs surrounded by open sea. On 1st April 2010 the Chagos Archipelago was designated by the British government as a fully no-take marine protected area.

  • Supporting Trustees with period reviews of investment policy
