Greener Kirkcaldy is a community-led charity working locally to bring people together, take positive action on the climate emergency and support people experiencing fuel poverty and food insecurity.

Our current Chief Executive is stepping down after 11 years leading our staff team and growing our programme of work. As a result, we have an exciting opportunity to join our team.

We are looking for an experienced leader to take the charity on the next stage of its journey. The Chief Executive will take a strategic lead in the development of Greener Kirkcaldy’s activities and will lead a team of 40 staff and 100 volunteers to deliver a range of grant-funded projects and social enterprise (income-generating) activities.

Greener Kirkcaldy’s work is diverse and includes programmes of action on climate change, fuel poverty and food insecurity. Our work encourages individuals, households, community groups and businesses to make Fife a greener and fairer place to live. We work in Kirkcaldy and across the region of Fife, often in partnership with other charities and public-sector organisations. Projects include the Cosy Kingdom energy advice service, the Climate Action Fife climate engagement project, the Lang Toun Cycles bike reuse enterprise and a range of community food and growing initiatives.

Hours of work: full-time or 28 hours per week (0.8 full-time equivalent). We would consider requests for fewer hours.
