About the role:
AFON is now recruiting for the role of Creative Director, the figurehead of the organisation, the de facto Chief Executive Officer. You will play a pivotal role in the committee, inspiring and motivating committee members to fulfil their roles to the best of their ability, support them in their roles and, in return, be supported in carrying out your own duties.

This is an outstanding opportunity to develop your CV with a nationally recognised organisation, learn new skills and influence the future direction of A Focus On Nature, including campaigns, attitudes and ambitions.
