Role

We’re looking to broaden significantly the backgrounds and diversity represented on our Board of Charity Trustees.

So, whether you’re an experienced Charity Trustee or looking to take your first steps at Board Level, we’d love to hear from you.

Keep Scotland Beautiful works to reduce litter and waste, combat climate change and protect and enhance the places we all care about. We support people and their communities to improve the quality of their lives, their wellbeing, and their environment.

The range of our activities and services includes work to influence policy on the key issues we care about, as well as our flagship programmes including Eco-Schools, Climate Emergency Training, litter prevention campaigns, environmental auditing and awards and much more. Check out our Annual Review for a taster of our impact in 2019/20 and our latest Charity Trustee Annual Report and Accounts for more insight to the scale and ambition of our charity.

As a Charity Trustee you will set the direction, strategy and policies for Keep Scotland Beautiful as well as being responsible for its governance. Trustees also provide guidance and support to the Chief Executive and wider team.

We know we have some gaps so if you understand behaviour change or have skills in environmental management, science or accountancy you’d be helping strengthen our current Board. But don’t be put off if these are not your particular skill set, because we’re actively looking for diversity of opinion and experience too. We want people who are passionate about making a difference, whatever their background.
