The Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) seeks to change the face of Central Scotland by restoring and transforming the landscape of an area stretching from Ayrshire and Inverclyde in the west, to Fife and the Lothians in the east.

In anticipation of the retirement of our Chief Executive, Simon Rennie, we are now seeking a new Chief Executive to lead the development of the Central Scotland Green Network (the largest environmental project of its kind in Europe) and to lead and manage the Central Scotland Green Network Trust. Working closely with our senior team, you will set the strategic direction of CSGNT in order to bring about our ambitious plans of bringing real change to the environment, economy and people of Central Scotland.
