Defra uses extensive networks to promote public appointment opportunities, including to representatives of wildlife organisations, for National Park Authorities and other public bodies. We do not provide specific support or training to people wishing to take up a public appointment but once appointed new appointees undertake an induction process to prepare them for the role.
