Brooklands Farm (Dorset Wildlife Trust HQ),

Brooklands Farm, Dorchester, DT2 7AA
Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT) is a welcoming community of people – members and supporters, volunteers, partners, and staff - who share a love of Dorset’s wildlife and who work together to protect it.
DWT Council (Board of Trustees) sets strategy for the charity and ensures it is run properly and effectively. The trustee role is a voluntary one; it requires preparation for and attendance at Council and some committee meetings, and continuing effort to keep in touch with DWT’s work and support its staff and membership.
We need trustees who can contribute to strategic management and organisational development. The uppermost requirement is a commitment to the purposes of the charity. We are particularly keen to further strengthen trustee expertise in finance, ecological restoration and rewilding, and agricultural land management.
We believe that serving as a Trustee at DWT is a rewarding experience. You may be seeking an opportunity to contribute to a cause you are passionate about or looking for a new challenge. Alternatively, you may be interested in becoming a Trustee to boost your career – trusteeships are an opportunity to get involved in every aspect of running an organisation.
We are committed to recognising and truly valuing individual differences and identities. We value diversity and are committed to creating a fully inclusive culture throughout our organisation, welcoming applications from any part of Dorset society.
