Scotland’s leading nature conservation charity, the Scottish Wildlife Trust, is looking for a new Chair.

Do you have the ability, empathy and commitment to make a major contribution to the conservation of Scotland’s wildlife and wild places?

Are you an experienced leader?

If so, we would love to hear from you!

We’re looking for an outstanding individual with excellent leadership, diplomacy and communication skills, who is used to building consensus and has a natural affinity for cultivating relationships.

Understanding of current conservation challenges and issues would be an advantage, although a focus on maximising long-term impact is more important than in-depth expertise.
