Time Commitment
Board meets 6 times a year with occasional sub-committee mtngs

We are seeking new trustees who have a strong interest in the Rivers Trusts to join our organisation and help us to be an effective and inclusive organisation.

We are at an exciting time of development, seeking new trustees to help guide the future vision and strategic development of the charity. We currently have three members of staff and over 50 volunteers and are seeking new opportunities to grow and do more for our catchment. We would like to recruit a diverse range of new trustees and welcome applications from younger candidates and those with transferable skills from other roles. We are particularly interested in individuals with skills in fundraising, communications, charity governance, larger river restoration projects, CDM and community projects.

We meet 6 times a year for a full trustee meeting with occasional sub-committee meetings in-between. Meetings are usually held in Harleston, Norfolk, so we ask that you are able to reach this location, although some are still held online. We meet in the evenings at 7pm.

The River Waveney Trust is an environmental charity dedicated to improving the River Waveney, its tributaries and catchment, making it a better place for people and wildlife. We are proud members of the national umbrella organisation for Rivers Trusts in the UK and Ireland – The Rivers Trust.

Our work covers managing a small network of riverside sites for wildlife and community access, hosting local volunteer groups, working with farmers on habitat and water quality projects, improving public access on land and in water, working with water companies to improve water quality and a host of practical habitat, water quality and river restoration projects.

We cover the whole Waveney Catchment, which is in North Suffolk and South Norfolk.
