Role Description: The Trees for Cities Board of Trustees is seeking a new Trustee (Systems & IT). This is an exciting opportunity for an individual who is passionate about trees, the environment and urban communities, and who has deep experience in IT systems and infrastructure.

Trees for Cities is the only UK charity working at a national and international scale to improve lives by planting trees in cities. We get stuck in with local communities to cultivate lasting change in their neighbourhoods - whether it's revitalising forgotten spaces, creating healthier environments or getting people excited about growing, foraging and eating healthy food. We have our headquarters in London and our 50+ staff work across the country. We are a growing and ambitious organisation working at the core of many of the most pressing issues facing our urban environments and communities.
