Trustee (Individual Giving)
Could you join our Board of Trustees?
The next few years will be an exciting and demanding time for Galapagos Conservation Trust. Two major programmes focussed on an eradication and reintroduction project on the island of Floreana, and on the pollution and danger to wildlife caused by plastics, mean we have the chance to make a significant difference in Galapagos. Our Trustees are passionate about the Galapagos Islands, and are committed to using their skills to ensure our organisation is well governed, in accordance with UK charity law, and makes the most of every opportunity to further our mission.
What we’re looking for
As we move forwards, we are seeking a new Trustee, specifically with strategic level experience in Individual Giving fundraising. Some experience of Major Donor fundraising would also be an advantage. As a Trustee you will be able to provide strategic direction, constructively contribute to board discussions, and provide inspiration and vision to our staff. You will attend Board meetings (currently four times a year in Central London), participate in strategic away days and participate in working committees.
You don’t have to have visited the Islands to become a Trustee, but your keen interest in Galapagos and your passion for wildlife, the environment and conservation will enable you to be an effective and enthusiastic ambassador and advocate of our work.
In this role you will also join our Fundraising and Communications Committee and provide strategic fundraising advice to the CEO and other senior staff members, especially around Individual Giving fundraising and Major Donors. Our long term strategy is to build our income in this area so that it creates a sustainable platform for all of our fundraising activities and, ultimately, to extend the delivery of vital conservation projects in Galapagos.
The role is being advertised by Nurole. Visit the advert on nurole.com to find out more and to apply. The closing date is Wednesday 19 June.
There are no staff vacancies at this time. Please keep checking back or sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date with the latest news from the Trust.
Opportunities in Galapagos
Although Galapagos Conservation Trust does run and fund projects in Galapagos, we do not place volunteers or research students abroad.

If you would like to discuss current GCT projects with one of our team then please email your enquiry to email@example.com.
Central London (Oxford Circus)
From time to time the Galapagos Conservation Trust requires the help of volunteers with skills in a particular field, usually to help us with a specific project or piece of work. This could be in anything from graphic design to research, marketing to human resources, facilitating workshops to proof reading, to writing blog pieces and articles.
