The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham & the Black Country is a charity founded in 1980 to make Birmingham and the Black Country a better place for wildlife and people. The Trust manages seven nature reserves throughout the conurbation, runs projects in which people of all ages can take part to connect people to nature, and leads the first Urban Nature Improvement Area partnership to bring positive environmental change and to link wonderful nature sites in the urban landscape. Although much of this is managed by paid staff, volunteers are vital to the work of the Trust. The trustees of the Trust are all volunteers.

We are looking for new Trustees with strategic vision, independent judgement and a willingness to commit to leading the charity through a crucial stage of our development.

A diverse council of Trustees is our aim and we welcome applications from all sections of the community. We provide an induction, full training and personal development opportunities.

These are volunteer posts. Meetings are usually held in the evenings. A full induction and ongoing training is provided.
