About us

Who we are

Friends of the Earth Scotland exists to win campaigns for transformative solutions to the root causes of environmental problems.

 

We campaign for an end to the climate crisis, for the flourishing of the Scottish environment, and for a democratic Scotland which cherishes and protects the natural world of which we are part.

 

We work for an economy oriented towards the needs of communities, ecosystems, and the planet.

 

We support people in Scotland to take individual and collective action for environmental and social justice locally, nationally, and globally.

 

Working with partners in Scotland and across the globe, we integrate research, political advocacy, strategic communications, mobilisation, and movement-building into focused and ambitious campaigns.

Our culture and values

“Our vision is of a world where systems of power and resource use are transformed so that all living beings and ecosystems have what they need to flourish, now and in the future.” (Friends of the Earth Scotland – Strategy 2024 – 2026)

 

We are Scotland’s leading environmental campaigning group and work to help people in Scotland to look after the planet for everyone’s future. Working with us will give you the opportunity to be part of a strong and collaborative team that is tackling head-on one of the biggest challenges facing our society.

 

You will help us deliver transformative solutions to climate change and other environmental problems. Whether campaigning for a Just Transition or working behind the scenes in our Operations Team, your work will enable and empower people to take individual and collective action.

 

We are looking for people who share and will uphold our values throughout their employment with Friends of the Earth Scotland.

 

Hope - Care - Justice - Collaboration - Creativity - Integrity

Equality, diversity and inclusion policy

We are committed to offering equal employment opportunity for all and to providing employees with a work environment free of discrimination and harassment.

 

We are committed to finding the right people for the jobs that we advertise. All employment and recruitment decisions are based on organisational needs, job requirements and individual qualifications, without regard to race, colour, religion, sexuality, gender identity or belief or any other status protected by the Equality Act 2010.

 

We are committed to increase the diversity of our team and encourage applications from people currently under-represented in the climate and environmental movement. We are working hard to create a space in which people from all walks of life see themselves.
