  • Excellent communication skills, including working collaboratively to achieve shared goals.
  • A positive, solution orientated and flexible attitude to their work.
  • An excellent understanding of the policy background that drives actions to address the climate and biodiversity crises.
  • A track record of successful project management.

This is a permanent, full-time position, based from our office in Stepps, North Lanarkshire (with home working). Flexible working would be considered. As travel within Scotland will be required, a clean driving licence and access to a vehicle are essential.
