Appointment of Trustees to the Board

Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust (Scottish Charity SC 024781) is looking to fill one position on our Board of Trustees: an opportunity to help us conserve, promote and enhance the countryside and natural heritage of Perth and Kinross.

Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust (PKCT)

This is an exciting opportunity for the right person to contribute to the future of the countryside and natural heritage of Perth and Kinross. PKCT is a small but dynamic charity with a staff of 5 engaged in a wide range of projects in the area relating to public access and education, the many historic trees, and conservation in general. Details of our work and more about our organisation can be found at

The Board of Trustees

We currently have 11Trustees but we are looking to recruit one additional trustee. Perth and Kinross Council nominate two Trustees and additional Trustees are appointed based on the skills, experience and expertise they bring to our organisation.

The Trustees have collective responsibility for oversight and development of the Trust in line with OSCR guidelines, for agreeing the organisation’s strategy, its governance, and work with its professional staff to account for the effective management and delivery of agreed projects on time and within budget.


Our recent organisational review has identified it would be of benefit if additional trustees brought some of the following skills/areas of work:

Professional Skills and Experience

  • Marketing and Communication
  • Charity governance

Time Commitment

The full Board meets four times each year. These quarterly meetings last 2-3 hours and usually take place in Perth , with occasionally one on site at a recent project. Currently however there is a mix of online and in person meetings due to Covid.

Between full Board meetings, Sub-Committee meetings are held. There are four Sub-Committees – Finance and HR, Governance, Development and Education , and Fundraising and Marketing – each meeting up to 3 times per year. Sub-Committee meetings are usually 2 hours long and are also held in Perth / online. Trustees will also be expected to contribute to one or two Sub-Committees. The basic time commitment is likely to average around eight days per year.


Trustees are not remunerated and your contribution will be on a voluntary/pro bono basis.
