Discover new interests with rewarding Landscape Trust role

People with skills or experience in fundraising/bid writing, project management, marketing/promotions, HR, finance/book keeping or with all-important business acumen are invited to apply to be a trustee for an exciting new environmental charity, the Cranborne Chase Landscape Trust (CCLT).

This is a fantastic opportunity to help run the CCLT, which is focused on conserving and enhancing the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). If you are passionate about ‘green tourism’, traditional rural trades and crafts, practical countryside skills for young people and encouraging people to get out and explore the countryside, then this is the perfect role for you.

The trustees meet approximately six times a year, although some of these may be ‘virtual’ meetings via Skype or telephone. In addition, trustees may wish to attend AONB events or occasional training courses.

Suitable candidates appointed to the role will find that this is a great opportunity to discover new interests, broaden their experience in a variety of fields and meet new people.

Successful applicants will help the CCLT to deliver a new visitor and interpretation centre for the Cranborne Chase AONB and support a conservation project to improve local habitats for the endangered Turtle Dove.

For more information, visit http://www.cranbornechaselt.org.uk/, or for an informal discussion contact Steve Avery, chairman of CCLT savery1@btinternet.com; tel: 01425 483075 or Zam Baring, trustee and vice chairman of the AONB Partnership Panel  zam.baring@keofilms.com.

All interested applicants should send a supporting statement and CV to Shirley Merrick on shirleymerrick@cranbornechase.org.uk. The closing date is 30 April 2017, with interviews held during May.
