The Built Environment Forum Scotland (BEFS) is the strategic intermediary body for Scotland’s historic environment sector, bringing together voluntary and professional non-governmental organisations that operate at the national level.
The position of Chair is an exciting opportunity for a resourceful and confident individual to play a central role in developing BEFS not only as the Scottish intermediary body for the historic environment but also the wider built environment. As well as continued engagement with the Planning (Scotland) Bill, implications of Brexit and other relevant live policy topics, BEFS main lines of enquiry are currently: the future of religious heritage with a conference in Spring 2019; improving tenement maintenance, holding the secretariat for a cross party working group; addressing the issue of prioritisation in the historic environment; and maintaining an interest in ongoing discussion on land ownership, management and tax issues. BEFS has an important and pivotal role to play in ensuring sector engagement in these developments and candidates will be expected to provide leadership and direction. Candidates will have a passion for Scotland’s places, excellent strategic, organisational, interpersonal, communication skills and enjoy working with a focussed and motivated small team.
