greenspace scotland is looking for up to four new Trustees to join our Board.

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. The experiences of the last two years – both the pandemic and extreme weather events - have led many to re-evaluate the importance of greenspace and blue-green infrastructure in our lives and places.

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.

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 experienced or first-time Trustees who are committed to our work and can make a valuable contribution to our development.

Our Chair will retire in April 2023 following completion of his full-term of office and so we are also looking to recruit a new Chair – more details here
