Size of Wales is a growing, ambitious Cardiff-based charity with global impact. We work to mobilise Wales to protect tropical forests and restore tropical forest landscapes as part of Wales’ national response to climate change. We do this through education and awareness raising activities in Wales as well as funding and supporting a number of overseas projects.
Size of Wales has been going through an exciting period of growth, having substantially increased our income and expanded our team. 2020/21 marks our 10-year anniversary and we are launching an ambitious new 5-year strategy seeking to respond to the climate emergency and to mobilise Wales to achieve maximum impact for tropical forests.
We are looking for an outstanding new Director to join the team and lead Size of Wales into this exciting next phase. Reporting to the board of trustees and managing a team of approximately 13 staff and freelancers, the new Director will be responsible for achieving Size of Wales’ new 5 year goals, raising the profile of the charity across - and beyond - Wales and increasing our global impact.
The successful candidate will be an experienced and skilled leader. You will have experience of working in the third sector, ideally on international development, tropical forests and/or climate change projects. You will be emotionally intelligent, creative, dynamic and strategic and have a strong track record in delivering results in leadership positions. Ideally you will have a good understanding of the devolved context in Wales and be able to speak Welsh.
Salary for the role is approximately £45,000 p.a., dependent on experience. The package of benefits includes a 6% pension contribution, 30 days annual leave including bank holidays and a flexible working policy. The role is based in Cardiff but with regular remote working if desired. The role is a full-time role but applications for flexible working and job shares will also be considered.
