Appointment of National Forest Trustee

Role: National Forest Trustee 

Spanning 200 square miles of central England, the National Forest is one of the country’s most ambitious and highly regarded environmental projects. It is about so much more than trees; pioneering new ways to reconnect people and businesses with nature, and create a place to grow together. The National Forest Company has driven forward the vision for the National Forest, taking it from a leap of faith to the success story we see today: a restored forest landscape and developing visitor destination. 

The National Forest Company is now seeking to appoint a new Trustee to succeed Chris Holmes who will shortly have completed his tenure. This is a crucial moment in the development of both the National Forest and the National Forest Company, with a new 25‑Year Vision for the National Forest, a new Corporate Plan for the Company, and a renewed focus and purpose in light of the urgency of climate change.

It will be essential to secure an individual of the right calibre, experience and outlook to join the Board as it oversees the organisation’s development to deliver against these ambitious plans. This is an opportunity to work with one of the UK’s most successful environmental projects, a highly professional organisation that is achieving extraordinary results through its passionate staff, Trustees, Ambassadors and wider supporters locally, regionally and nationally.

This role would suit a senior executive looking for a development opportunity, an experienced non-executive director, or an individual pursuing a portfolio career.

The National Forest Company relies on the experience and commitment of people of all ages and backgrounds.  It operates as an inclusive organisation and welcomes applications from all.
