Guernsey has a Sports Commission, and Arts Commission, a Youth Commission – and now a Nature Commission.
And the new Commission is looking for directors
Dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the Island’s biodiversity and natural environment, the Guernsey Nature Commission will work in collaboration with the government, the third sector, business and the wider public.
They are looking to recruit eight volunteer non-executive directors, including a Treasurer/Finance Director and someone who, in time, can take over from Fiona Bateson as Chair. The first job of the Board will be to recruit a Chief Executive and additional staff members.
The board will meet monthly initially, then bi-monthly. Timing of board meetings will be flexible to suit the people recruited.
Jim Roberts from the Guernsey Community Foundation said:
“We’re trying not to be too prescriptive about the skills and experience that we want at board level. We might recruit some people with specific qualifications relating to the environment, or we might simply look for people with expertise and attributes that make for a strong environmental charity board, e.g. an accountant, a lawyer specialising in contract law, and individuals with expertise in corporate governance, green finance, HR, economics (with an interest in natural capital accounting) and project management. This is not an exclusive list. All candidates should have an interest in the terrestrial and marine environments”.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity to play a key role in helping to ensure a healthy, resilient, sustainable natural environment in Guernsey that will benefit generations to come.
