Trustee with Finance & Investment Management Expertise
Voluntary position, but travel expenses paid. 10 days per year.
Fish Legal is a membership association which takes legal action throughout the UK on behalf of its 1,000 member angling clubs and fishery owners if their waters are affected by pollution or other damage, and also offers these members free legal advice. It is supported by subscription income from clubs, fisheries and 13,500 individual members. Fish Legal has accumulated a substantial fighting fund over the last 65 years, to support the legal costs of cases, which is held by an investment company. Over that time, Fish Legal has successfully settled thousands of claims on behalf of its members and only lost four `cases. In England, Fish Legal acts as the legal arm of the Angling Trust, with which it has a close and permanent partnership agreement.
The Chairman of Fish Legal is seeking a volunteer with in-depth experience of finance and investment management to join the Committee (i.e. the Board) which has oversight of the management of the organisation, and to be a non-executive Director of our investment company. We are particularly looking for an individual who is committed to the aims of the organisation, but who also has professional experience of finance and investment management at a senior level. Knowledge of corporation tax management would be an advantage.
The Committee meets four times a year, usually in London during the working week, and has an annual AGM, usually held on a Saturday in the autumn. There would be up to five days’ additional work each year in between meetings.
Anyone interested in this role should initially contact the Chief Executive Mark Lloyd for an informal discussion via firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning the office on 01568 620447.
