Part time Peterborough
Position #17866 Closing date 04/07/2021

Trustee roles

PECT is a sustainability charity based in Peterborough working nationally to help to protect and enhance the environment. Established over 25 years ago, PECT has a long history of making places more sustainable through projects which support a healthy natural environment, involve people and communities in their area, improve health and wellbeing and promote the responsible use of resources.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the organisation at a time where the charity is achieving success across a wide range of workstreams and the demand for environmental initiatives is high.

The Board is looking to recruit up to four Trustees to bring new experience and ideas to the Board and for succession planning. The role is not remunerated.

The full Board meets six times per year, with further meetings for subgroups. Meetings are currently virtual and the aim is for this to continue long term with just one or two meetings per year to be in person in Peterborough as restrictions allow.

We are looking for individuals with skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:

• Business development

• Health

• Academia

• Marketing & fundraising

Membership roles

We are looking to expand our membership scheme. Members meet twice yearly and have the opportunity to input to the strategic direction of the charity as well as offering hands-on support.

Trading subsidiary

We are keen to hear from people with skills and experience in the energy sector who are interested in supporting our subsidiary, Green Energy Switch (GES).  GES is a profit for purpose company, specialising in working with social landlords, local authorities, businesses and communities.

Please contact us to find out more details.
