We’re recruiting to our Board! We want to provide the best possible strategic leadership and support to LP> to really make an impact. We want to make sure our Director and her staff can rely on us to help them to take the organisation forward. Would you like to be part of that?

Neither do you need to have experience as a Trustee – we’ll offer induction, mentoring and training.
We are developing a strong Board with a wealth of skills; we would now particularly like to hear from you if you can boost the Board in any of these areas:
• Publicity, marketing and media
• Internal and external communications.
We are also keen to hear from you if you are interested, with these skills, in the role of Trustee with the lead for our Research and Publications Working Group.
For more information on this opportunity, please go to our website www.londongardenstrust.org. If you’d like to chat about the role before applying, do get in touch with me, Verena McCaig, Vice Chair firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please send your CV to email@example.com by Tuesday 28 August with a short covering email highlighting your interest in joining the Board.
