FoE recruiting new board member

The Ecologist

20th January 2014

Friends of the Earth UK are recruiting a new member to their 16-person Board to provide top level direction, strategy and guidance ...


Below is copied the email from FoE chair Roger Clarke.

We do hope a reader of The Ecologist gets the job - and helps bring in some new, radical, campaigning zeal and energy!

After all - we don't want FoE to become another yet corporatised NGO for middle-of-the-road, controversy-dodging careerists shinning up the greasy pole ... do we?



We have an exciting opportunity for someone to join the Friends of the Earth Board. Comprising 16 charity trustees from diverse backgrounds, our Board plays a critical role in leading the organisation.

Bringing passion, experience and expertise to Friends of the Earth, as a trustee you are placed at the forefront of our work to create a positive new relationship between people and the planet.

If you are ready to share your skills, time and ideas, we'd love to hear from you. We are particularly seeking individuals from communities and backgrounds that are currently underrepresented within our Board structure, whilst having experience in finance, business, international relations or high-level advocacy/campaigning.

Most importantly, we need people who can provide the commitment and energy necessary to lead one of the world's most impactful environment charities.

Best wishes,

Roger Clarke
Chair of the Board 



PS - the pay is rubbish - there is none! But you do get expenses.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
