SALARY: CIRCA £25,000, DEPENDING ON EXPERIENCE, PLUS
The Angling Trust is the National Governing Body and representative organisation for all anglers in England. It is united in a collaborative relationship with Fish Legal, a separate membership association using the law to protect fish stocks and the rights of its members throughout the UK. Joint membership packages with Fish Legal are available for individuals, clubs, fisheries and other categories and the organisations work very closely together. Due to expansion of our organisations, we are seeking a motivated and well-organised person to fill a new role of Governance and Business Manager in our team of almost 50 people. The post holder will work closely with the Head of Finance and Business and the rest of his team to manage administration and governance at a national level. Due to a planned office re-location, the post will initially be homeworking until early 2016 when we expect to locate to the M5 corridor in the region of Worcester, after which the successful candidate will be office-based.
We are looking for someone who is very organised, diligent and efficient, with a keen eye for detail. Previous experience of supporting board meetings and/or senior executives would be very desirable.
Closing date for applications: Wednesday 19th August.
