Trustees/Board Members for greenspace scotland

Are you passionate about greenspace? Would you like to help shape the work of greenspace scotland?

We have exciting opportunities for four new Trustees to support the governance and strategic leadership of our organisation. Suitable for experienced or first-time trustees, you will be joining a supportive and welcoming Board. We are seeking diversity in experience, thinking and background. If you could contribute to our future please find out more on ourwebsite.

The Role

Our Trustees play a key role in the governance and strategic leadership of our organisation. You will be joining an experienced Board and we are looking for Trustees who will bring their own individual range of knowledge, skills and experience to contribute to the overall richness of the Board.

Specific areas we are looking for technical/professional input in are:

  1. Health and Wellbeing
  2. Culture and Arts
  3. Planning and Placemaking
  4. Communications and Marketing

We want a diverse board of Trustees with a depth and breadth of insight experience and perspective. We welcome and value people of different backgrounds, thinking and skills. We recognise that the environment sector is under-represented by people from ethnic minority and low-income backgrounds, LGBT+ and disabled people, and we want to change that. We especially welcome candidates from these backgrounds and from young people.

We are interested in hearing from first-time Trustees who are interested in our work and can commit to training so they are able to make a valuable contribution to our long term development.

About Us

Greenspace makes a big difference to our quality of life and sense of place. Parks and greenspaces are our natural health service, our children’s outdoor classrooms and our cities’ green lungs.

greenspace scotland has provided a national lead on greenspace since 2002. As Scotland’s parks and greenspace charity, we have been influential in shaping a supporting policy context for greenspace, promoting good practice on greenspace delivery, and pioneering new approaches to managing and resourcing parks and greenspaces.

Never before has our work been more important. Recent experiences of extreme weather events have led many to re-evaluate the importance of greenspace and blue-green infrastructure in our lives and places. The Covid 19 pandemic highlighted the value of local high quality greenspace and the related socio-economic disparity across the nation in terms of easy access to this resource.
