Size of Wales is a growing, ambitious Cardiff-based charity with global impact. We work to mobilise Wales to protect tropical forests and restore tropical forest landscapes as part of Wales’ national response to climate change. We do this through education and awareness raising activities in Wales (including an education programme in schools and our annual Go Green Day campaign) as well as supporting a number of overseas projects that protect and/or restore tropical forests. The projects are located in Africa, South America and South East Asia.
This is an exciting time for Size of Wales. We will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in 2020 and will be launching an ambitious new 5 year strategy seeking to respond to the climate emergency and to mobilise Wales to achieve maximum impact for tropical forests.
We are looking for two or three enthusiastic individuals with a passion for our mission to join our board of trustees at this exciting time. The board of trustees is the ultimate decision-making body for the charity and is responsible for setting the overall strategy and ensuring the strategy is delivered by the Size of Wales Director.
We welcome applications from individuals with a range of backgrounds, experience and expertise that will support our mission. Some specific skill area that we currently need – although we also welcome applicants with other skills to offer – include HR, international development projects, tropical forest projects, fundraising, forest risk commodities and supply chains, voluntary carbon credits and the schools curriculum for Wales.
