Loch Lomond Fisheries Trust seeks new chair

The Loch Lomond Fisheries Trust, an environmental charity formed in 2001 to champion the conservation and restoration of the loch‘s native fish populations, habitats and freshwater environment, is on the hunt for a new chair.

Current chair Charlie Frize steps down this year, following a successful five-year tenure in post and now the Trust wants to appoint an individual who can continue to build and grow on its successes.

This is a non-executive role suitable for a passionate individual seeking to lead an organisation at the forefront of improving conditions for wild fish stocks in one of Scotland’s premiere natural fisheries.

Legitimate and reasonable out of pocket expenses only, are payable, and, ideally, the role will be located in central Scotland, although remote working is possible for the one to three days per month required.

This consists of four trust board meetings a year (online or in person), an annual general meeting in central Scotland, stakeholder engagement meetings across Scotland and online or in-person strategy meetings.

As well as chairing the quarterly board meetings and the AGM, the chair will maintain regular communication with and conduct an annual performance review of the trust’s senior executive, represent the trust and build relationships at senior level with external stakeholders, funders and supporters (Loch Lomond Angling Improvement Association, riparian owners, LLTNP, Marine Scotland, FMS and others).

They will also write the chairperson’s message for the annual report and recruit board members of trust.

Alongside the rest of the board, the roll will also include setting long-term strategic plans and reviewing progress against targets and revise as required, ensure the trust is run in line with the constitution, approve the annual budget, review quarterly financial reports and annual accounts, ensure operational, financial and ethical standards are legally compliant and in line with or better than other equivalent organisations and, if required, manage recruitment of the trust’s senior executive.
