This is an exciting opportunity to lead this Trust into a Wilder Future!
Our client is the leading wildlife charity in central Powys working to protect and enhance wildlife and wild places and to engage people with nature.
They have a very supportive and active group of Trustees, a small but excellent team of staff and a strong group of volunteers. They have achieved so much but now need someone with the ability, skills and vision to drive that success forward.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a natural and inspirational leader to join them. Working as CEO of our small but perfectly formed trust, you'll develop, deliver and report on their vision and strategic goals, championing and developing a culture that values and enhances their model as a membership-based organisation.
You will be expected to take the Trust forward through the rapidly-evolving regional and national political landscape. You will manage all aspects of the operation; maintaining high standards and ensuring the best use of resources and leading on income generation.
They are looking for someone with the following skills and experience:
* Senior management experience including the ability to manage budgets and human resources.
* A detailed understanding of nature conservation and relevant environmental issues.
* Evidence of inspirational leadership and being a team player.
* Education to degree level or equivalent.
* Good knowledge of environmental policy especially in a Welsh context.
* A proven track record in developing and implementing strategy.
* Knowledge of charitable governance and especially of working with trustees and volunteers.
* Experience of engaging with land-owners face to face.
* A current driving licence and use of a vehicle.
If you are passionate about nature and are inspired to create a wilder future for the wildlife and people of Radnorshire, they'd love to hear from you
