 Volunteer Positions

We currently have the following voluntary positions open at the Conservation Board:

1. Board Member, Chilterns AONB

We're looking for a new Board Member to help look after this very special landscape. 

The ChilternsConservation Board is seeking a passionate and committed individual to be appointed as a Secretary of State Member. Secretary of State Board Members play an important role overseeing the management of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They provide leadership and strategic input, at a non-executive level, to the Board which works to ensure the delivery of benefits to the nation and local communities. Secretary of State Members are not representative of any organisation or group and have a duty to act in the best interest of the Board.

Candidates should have an appreciation of England’s Protected Landscapes and in particular the Chilterns AONB as a significant national asset, its statutory purposes and duties and be able to take account of interests at both the national and local level. In addition, candidates should have the ability to think strategically and provide advice and challenge in ways which are impartial, creative and focused on finding solutions.  They will act as an ambassador: championing this protected landscape and its communities; engaging and influencing a diverse network of contacts and working collaboratively with all who are responsible for managing the landscape.

Further information and a candidate pack is available at: https://publicappointments.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/appointment/board-member-national-park-authorities-and-area-of-outstanding-natural-beauty-aonb-conservation-boards/ Closing date for applications is 22 March 2017 at 12 noon.  Contact: Kate Fouracre, Public Appointments Team, Defra on 0208 0266757 or publicappts@defra.gsi.gov.uk
