Job description

For over 50 years, the Scottish Wildlife Trust has worked with its members, partners and supporters in pursuit of its vision of healthy, resilient ecosystems across Scotland’s land and seas. The Trust successfully champions the cause of wildlife through policy and campaigning work, demonstrates best practice through practical conservation and innovative partnerships, and inspires people to take positive action through its education and engagement activities. The Trust manages a network of around 120 wildlife reserves across Scotland and is a member of the UK-wide Wildlife Trusts movement.

Nature conservation has never been more important and this is an exceptional opportunity to join a vibrant and committed board of trustees (“Council”), which provides the governance function for the charity. Most members of Council are directly elected by the membership but this will be a co-opted position.

 

The successful candidate will have:

  • Experience in financial or investment management
  • Ability to think strategically and differentiate between strategy and operations
  • Ability to constructively challenge fellow trustees and senior management
  • A strong personal commitment to environmental issues
  • A strong personal commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion

 

The post is without remuneration but reasonable out-of-pocket expenses may be reclaimed.

If you would like to play a role in achieving the Trust’s vision of a network of healthy, resilient ecosystems across Scotland’s land and seas, we would love to hear from you.

 

To apply, please email your CV accompanied by a short (100 words) biography.

If you would like more information please phone 0131-312 4718. We particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups.
