Future Woodlands Scotland is a Scottish Charity that has been working since 2012 to create, restore and increase understanding of native woodlands in Scotland. We are currently seeking an energetic and experienced Chief Executive to lead on developing the charity as we view larger opportunities ahead.

The Chief Executive role will manage a small organisation with big ambitions to benefit Scotland’s native woodland. As the organisation grows, we expect the role to grow with it; this presents a fantastic opportunity to help shape a charity on the verge of significant growth.

Reporting directly to the board of Trustees, you will be responsible for delivering the aims of the charity by developing and implementing a strategic plan, supporting operational delivery and developing external relationships. You will oversee programme delivery and bring out the best in our small and committed team.

Contract Details

The rate and terms are negotiable but our preference is for the position to be self-employed.

This self-employed, freelance role is offered at a negotiable rate, anticipated to be in the region of £300 per day (incl. VAT) + travel and subsistence for an anticipated 2 days per week, or 92 working days per annum for 2 years. The hours are a minimum estimate based on average time likely to be needed and flexibility will be required. The role and workload will be subject to regular review and if funding is successful beyond the pilot phase, it is likely the contract will be extended, or the position will be employed.

The contractor will provide all necessary equipment, professional indemnity insurance, IT, etc. but FWS will provide for specialist management software and equipment if required.
