Our growing charity needs a suitably experienced person to lead Creative Carbon Scotland's operational sustainability, efficiency and effectiveness whilst maintaining our creative and collaborative nature.

The senior operations manager is a new post created to help us deftly navigate an increased workload resulting from our work to support Creative Scotland’s Climate Emergency and Sustainability Plan and new initiatives stemming from COP26 in Glasgow in 2021.
