Avon Needs Trees is looking for a new Chair!

ANT is a registered charity that tackles the climate emergency and engages the public by acquiring land to plant new permanent woodlands.  Hundreds of volunteers are currently helping us plant our second 10,000 tree woodland with the aim of locking up carbon, boosting biodiversity and providing natural flood management.

ANT has an amazing team in place including a paid Director, Project Co-ordinator, Woodland Creation Manager and Administration/Publicity Officer.  Our team of trustees are the best of the best, with specialists in fundraising, education and public engagement, ecology, local government and finance.  We are supported by a team of volunteer land management specialists who make sure our woodlands are planted and maintained for maximum ecological benefit.

We are now looking for a new Chair of Trustees to help guide ANT at this exciting stage in our development.  We are looking for a volunteer who is committed to tackling climate change.  You would ideally have enough time on your hands to chair meetings, act as a public-facing ambassador for ANT and develop a close relationship with our Director who manages ANT's operations.

We are also seeking trustees with skills in the fields of public relations, press and human resources.
