The national governing body seeks a finance and business manager on a salary of £30,000 pa. It’s full time (37 hours). 

They say: ‘An opportunity has arisen for an experienced finance professional to join the Angling Trust’s finance team at our Nottingham office.

‘This is a new position and will manage the small team of staff in our finance office, currently located just outside Nottingham. The finance team manage all aspects of sales and purchases ledgers, banking, payroll, pensions and taxation.

Applicants should complete an application form and diversity monitoring form available below and send them marked “Personal” to David Compton, Angling Trust, Strelley Hall, Strelley, Nottingham NG8 6PE or via email to

Closing date for applications is 31 January 2014.



THE  Trust’s Fish Legal arm seek a Trustee with finance and investment management expertise. It’s a voluntary position, but travel expenses paid. Ten days per year.

They say: ‘Chairman of Fish Legal is seeking a volunteer with in-depth experience of finance and investment management to join the Committee (i.e. the Board) which has oversight of the management of the organisation, and to be a non-executive Director of our investment company.

‘We are particularly looking for an individual who is committed to the aims of the organisation, but who also has professional experience of finance and investment management at a senior level. Knowledge of corporation tax management would be an advantage.

‘The Committee meets four times a year, usually in London during the working week, and has an annual AGM, usually held on a Saturday in the autumn. There would be up to five days’ additional work each year in between meetings.’


And Fish Legal also seek a voluntary governance administrator(s). Travel and subsistence expenses are payable.

They say: ‘Core funding of business operations is very limited and the executive team would like to spend less time administering Board and Committee meetings and more time securing funding to support the work of both organisations.

‘The Angling Trust and Fish Legal are therefore seeking one or more volunteers to work closely with the Chief Executive and the Head of Finance & Business to administer the Board and Committee meetings of both organisations and to assist with keeping policies updated. These would be unpaid positions, but travel expenses would be payable.’

Anyone interested in the latter two roles should initially contact the Chief Executive Mark Lloyd for an informal discussion via or by telephoning the office on 01568 620447.
