The UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology is seeking a highly experienced senior leader as a Non-executive Trustee Director. Working with our existing Board of eight Trustee Directors and the UKCEH Executive, you will help to shape and oversee the development of the organisation following its recent transition to a not-for-profit research institute.

You will assist with determining our future strategic direction, ensuring we meet our charitable aims. You will help us to build our reputation for excellent environmental science, partnering with organisations across borders, sectors and disciplines. In addition, you will support us to increase the impact of our science by engaging with businesses, policy-makers and environmental practitioners through collaborative co-design, co-delivery and commercialisation.

The Non-executive Trustee Director role is not remunerated, but expenses are provided for attending meetings.

We are looking for a senior leader with a clear vision for how UKCEH could enhance its standing as a world-leading research institute and increase the impact of its science.

You will be recognised internationally as an outstanding scientist in your own right and have in depth understanding of how to operate in the research funding environment, nationally and internationally.

You will have time to commit to four Board meetings per annum and to attending occasional UKCEH events.

The closing date for applications is 23 July 2021.
