Job Description

The Wildlife Trusts are a grassroots movement of people from a wide range of backgrounds and all walks of life, who believe that we need nature and nature needs us.  We have more than 870,000 members, over 35,000 volunteers, 2,000 staff and 600 trustees. 

There are forty-six individual Wildlife Trusts, each of which is an independent charity with its own legal identity, formed by groups of people getting together and working with others to make a positive difference to wildlife and future generations, starting where they live and work. 

Every Wildlife Trust is part of The Wildlife Trusts federation and a corporate member of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts (RSWT), a registered charity in its own right founded in 1912 and one of the founding members of IUCN – The International Union for the Conservation of Nature. 

The role of RSWT – the central charity - is to ensure a strong collective voice for wildlife, to help coordinate work between individual Wildlife Trusts, and to lead the development of the movement and federation as a whole.

Taken together this federation of charities is known as The Wildlife Trusts. 

The role of the Honorary Treasurer is to take the lead in Council for financial issues; ensuring that RSWT’s financial accounts are accurate, timely, comply to best accountancy practice and reflect RSWT’s true financial position.
