Director, More Trees


Who we are

At More Trees BANES we are passionate about trees, the environment and people combining these passions to achieve our Vision of:


A dynamic and diverse tree rich landscape that regenerates our environment, communities and the natural world.


We grow, plant and care for trees with local provenance, using tree seed collected from a wide variety of sources around Bath and Northeast Somerset ensuring that our trees, hedgerows and woodlands are resilient to climate change and disease.


We aim to engage a wide range of people in our work, including those that would not normally get the opportunity to be involved in environmental projects. To support this, we have developed a unique model for growing trees in the community with a central nursery Hub which supports an expanding network of smaller community (and school based) nurseries.


What you’ll be doing

More Trees BANES is entering a new and exciting phase of its development recently evolving from a grass-roots community group into a charity. We are looking for someone who shares our values and has the vision, skills and experience to lead the charity as it develops in line with our Vision, Mission & Values.


The postholder will work at a strategic level in close liaison with the Trustees to plan and oversee the management of our finance, governance and operations.


With proven leadership skills, you will raise the profile of the charity, help it to set a long-term fundraising strategy alongside working with the team to establish good practice and high-quality delivery in all aspects of our work from charity management, tree growing to volunteer management.
