Unremunerated role

The FSC is the UK’s leading charity provider of outdoor environmental education for schools, colleges and universities.  Each year more than 165,000 people benefit from our work, mainly through attending courses at our UK-wide network of 20 Centres.  Our award-winning publications are widely acclaimed. We believe deeply that the more we understand about and take inspiration from the world around us, the more we can appreciate its needs and protect its diversity and beauty for future generations. This is an exciting time for an experienced Chair to join us, as you will be harnessing the potential of a large, high-calibre Board to meet the challenges we face around broader environment issues such as climate change, educating the generations of today and tomorrow about some of the most important issues of our time.

Our organisational priorities are designed to ensure that we continue this work. As part of this, we are working towards our Vision 2025, which includes ambitious plans for growth; developing our educational and commercial partnerships, diversifying our offer and raising our income significantly. To achieve this, our new Chair will have credibility with the environment sector, as well as a demonstrable track record of leadership at Board level, from any sector. 

This is an excellent opportunity to join an organisation with strong values, a clear vision and mission, and with a great heritage whilst having a strong focus on the future. We are passionate about the work we do, and our new Chair will espouse the values that we hold and work with us to take FSC on to the next level.
