Become a board member for Everyone Welcome in Wales

We are looking for two external members for the board which supports our commitment to Croeso i Bawb/Everyone Welcome.

Croeso i Bawb /Everyone Welcome: What is it?

The National Trust has a role to play within the social, political and civic society across Wales.  

Opportunities provided by the Welsh Language, the WBFG Act and the range of interested partner organisations provide an ideal platform for National Trust Wales to realise its purpose of being for everyone, forever.

Croeso i Bawb /Everyone Welcome is fundamental to our commitment to be an inclusive organisation.  

What to expect 

We are looking for two external members for the board which supports our commitment to Croeso i Bawb/Everyone Welcome. The role will require you to bring your own experience and insight to support and challenge the organisation to move forward its aspirations to: 

  • to be recognised as diverse, inclusive, continually learning & improving
  • to ensure it is relevant to and resonate with society in Wales

The board sits within the context of National Trust Wales governance but has delegated authority to shape, plan and deliver the work.

The expectation is that you bring knowledge and experience of working with and supporting diverse communities in Wales and the ability to be a trusted advisor - providing both support and challenge to the board and the work we are conducting across Wales. Experience of engaging and developing people during a process of change would also be useful. 

You don’t need to come from the heritage/cultural sector – we see many benefits of having a completely fresh pair of eyes. However, it is likely you have previously undertaken a similar role on an advisory panel, committee or board. 

You will enjoy listening, and contributing, to discussions at the Project Board to ensure decisions are well considered and informed. You will be able to challenge our thinking in a positive way but understand the need to maintain momentum through the project.

Interested?
