The Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust (ARC) is inviting applications for non-executive trustee positions to join its Board of Trustees.

As a trustee, you will contribute at a strategic level to ensure that ARC stays on course to achieve its mission which is to safeguard healthy populations of amphibians and reptiles and the habitats on which they depend, now and into the future, and to enthuse and involve more people in their conservation.

We are keen to speak to applicants with knowledge of the charity sector and professional business experience in finance, corporate governance, legal, HR or marketing. A knowledge of amphibians and reptiles is by no means a pre-requisite but an interest in wildlife conservation is essential.

We value diversity and welcome applications from people who are representative of our community who can make a real contribution to ARC.

Our trustees are responsible for

• Ensuring ARC is fulfilling its charitable obligations and is compliant
• Ensuring that ARC is financially sustainable
• Working with the senior management team to develop ARC’s strategy
• Introducing broader skills and experience to help ARC achieve its goals
• Encouraging effective decision making and positive action
• Being an advocate for ARC in a broad range of scenarios

The time commitment from current trustees varies widely and includes active participation in three Trustee meeting per year which can be attended remotely with options for face to face involvement in London or ARC’s offices in Bournemouth.

We encourage applicants to explore our web site to learn more about ARC and invite those interested in applying to submit a brief CV and covering letter to our Chair of Trustees Jonathan Webster at
