The Wild Trout Trust is currently seeking an additional Director (Trustee) to join its Board of Directors. WTT are particularly interested in an individual in possession of significant professional communications and marketing experience, and who would be able to use this to provide strategic direction to the WTT's communications activities.
The role entails attending four Board meetings per year in London plus preparation for meetings (proposing agenda items and reading Board papers including accounts, budget, business plan, and reports). Trustees are also encouraged to attend other WTT events, in particular the Annual Conservation Awards (October) and the Annual Get-Together (May/June). In addition, Trustees are expected to undertake Board activities between meetings remotely. An indicative time commitment over and above the four days of meetings is four further days. The post is unpaid, although reasonable travel expenses are recoverable.

- Your skills knowledge and experience relevant to the role;
- How you can contribute to the success of the Wild Trout Trust, recognising our charitable articles (see www.wildtrout.org), and specifically the opportunities and needs in relation to communications and promotion of the Trust;
