We're Recruiting For New Trustees
Would you like to be at the heart of the organic movement, and have the opportunity to make a huge difference to the natural world and the health of the people around you? You're in luck, as we're recruiting for Trustees and a Chair of Trustees.
We’re looking for skilled and experienced people to join our Board as Trustees and play an important role in delivering our strategy to transform the way we eat and farm. The vote to leave the EU presents significant challenges but also some unique opportunities, so this is a particularly important time for the Soil Association and for you to consider joining us. You'll support our senior team and to help us influence out in the world. We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who has experience in the following areas:
• charitable fundraising
• the education sector
• the food retail and service sector
• finance and commercial
Diversity is really important to us so we’d love to hear from our younger and female members – and members based in Scotland and Wales.
Chair of Trustees:
The Soil Association was formed in 1946 to create a better world – one where we farm responsibly, eat healthily and live in balance with the environment. Over the intervening 70 years we have championed organic farming and food, campaigned on a wide range of issues, innovated and delivered real change in the world. And now as a result of the EU referendum, our country faces crucial choices about how to shape the future of food, farming and the countryside.
So these are exciting times and we are at an exciting stage of our development with a hugely committed workforce of 250 employees across the UK and tens of thousands of like-minded individuals and businesses working towards a vision of positive change. Our Trustees sit at the heart of the charity’s governance and you will be a central figure playing a key role in implementing the Soil Association’s strategy, building a strong working relationship with the Chief Executive and senior staff and inspire our beneficiaries, customers and supporters to take their own steps towards a kinder, fairer and healthier future.
