About the role:

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced environmental and/or land use policy specialist to join the Trust to lead our Terrestrial policy team to deliver on our Strategy 2030 goals. We want to maximise our impact to ensure we are  a key player in Scotland being recognised internationally for the part it has played in the UN's decade on Ecosystem Restoration and we need a strong policy leader to coordinate and advocate for our policy agendas to help achieve this. 


About you:

Your passion for conservation and your demonstrable experience of policy development will ensure that you are a natural advocate, and our policy agendas will be well received as a result. You should be able to demonstrate strong understanding of environmental policy, achieved either through a higher qualification or through working experience in a similar field. Experience of policy campaign work and developing key policy asks for government would be highly desirable. You will be a natural team leader, fostering a collaborative approach to ensure whole team success.
