The Vincent Wildlife Trust is a charity that has been at the forefront of techniques for wildlife conservation for over 40 years. Our specific niche is the smaller native mammals providing scientifically sound, practical solutions to conservation problems. Our work to date, has focused on the needs of British and Irish mammals, mostly mustelids (the weasel family) and the rarer bats.
Due to the upcoming retirement of a long-standing trustee, a vacancy has arisen on the Board. We need someone to complement the skills and experiences of the existing trustees and move the VWT through a new period of growth. The Vincent Wildlife Trusts are looking for a person who is enthusiastic and knowledgeable about species conservation, especially those at risk in Europe, perhaps someone who is developing their career in this sector. Preference will be given to those who are developing their network or already have good connections, can bring new perspectives and navigate the Trust through the challenges ahead.
