Our Council, the Trustee Board, plays a critical role in helping our organisation to evolve and ensure our work has the biggest possible impact. We aim for the Council to be made up of a diverse group of people with a blend of skills, experience, and expertise to meet future challenges and opportunities, supported by a wider group of advisors working together in committee.
When recruiting new members to our advisory committees, we look for people with a keen interest in the work and values of the RSPB. You might have specific skills, expertise or experience that would enhance the work of our committees.
Vacancies are advertised on the RSPB webpage and applications are open to any eligible member. We welcome applications from people of all ages, areas and backgrounds who can positively contribute to our work. The Nominations & People Committee oversee the recruitment and appointment processes.
Appointments of committee members are made on the recommendation of a panel established for that purpose, following a fair and transparent process and having undertaken the necessary pre-appointment and eligibility checks. All appointments are for a 3-year term of office, with potential renewal for one further term. All roles remain unpaid except for valid, reasonable expenses incurred. Committee members are expected to adhere to the values of the RSPB and relevant Codes of Conduct during the duration of their term of office.
We are always glad to hear from committed supporters who are keen and would like to get involved.
