The Sussex Wildlife Trust is seeking a new Chief Executive, after Dr Tony Whitbread recently announced his retirement.

With a new vision, a refreshed strategy, an adopted business plan and healthy financial resources, we are in a strong position and poised for the next stage in our development. The Trust commands a high degree of respect across the conservation world for its strong advocacy, partnership working and its firm foundation of scientific evidence.

The new Chief Executive will have the opportunity to develop our vision and strategy and ensure that the objectives are delivered to achieve real impact for nature in Sussex over the coming years. Strong leadership will ensure the implementation of our vision for Nature and Wellbeing.

The successful candidate will work with a Board of Trustees to provide strategic direction and overall management of the Trust. You will deliver our strategy, ensure policies are put into operational practice and inspire staff, volunteers and members to work towards our visions.

The successful candidate will already have excellent knowledge and enthusiasm for nature conservation and the wider environmental movement. You should have a clear understanding of the governance and management of a charity along with a commitment to legacy thinking.

With senior leadership and strategic planning experience, you will be able to inspire, motivate and embrace a culture of shared endeavour. We are looking for someone with a proven track record of developing strategic projects, implementing objectives, financial management and business planning.

If you have a high level of personal integrity, a commitment to wildlife conservation and the skills to manage organisational change, we would love to hear from you.
