Three vacancies for Secretary of State-appointed Board Members on Chilterns Conservation Board

The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is seeking to appoint three new members to the Chilterns Conservation Board. This is a great opportunity to get involved with a very active organisation that works across the fields of conservation, planning, access, tourism and public engagement to protect and enhance the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Board has 27 members who oversee its work and get involved in projects, working groups and events. They are not paid, but receive a basic annual allowance of £667, with further allowances available for special responsibilities. Being a member of the Board typically takes up the equivalent of 2 days per month, though there is the opportunity for more involvement if you have the interest and time.

Anyone can apply to become a member of the Board. The closing date for applications is 11pm on Friday 22nd November 2013. Short-listed candidates will be invited for interview on 12th or 13th February 2014 at the Conservation Board’s office in Chinnor, Oxon. The appointments will take effect from 1st April 2014 and normally run for 3 years
