We are looking for an exceptional individual with the drive and commitment to support the delivery of the vision for the Scottish Forum on Natural Capital.

Natural capital can be defined as the world’s stocks of natural assets which include geology, soil, air, water and all living things.

It is from this natural capital that humans derive a wide range of services, often called ecosystem services, which make human life possible.

The Scottish Forum on Natural Capital is a ground-breaking initiative bringing together public, private and voluntary sector organisations to protect and rebuild Scotland’s natural capital.

We are now looking for someone to lead this initiative on a day-to-day basis, providing the secretariat function, promoting strong programme management and keeping up-to-date with latest developments in the field.

If you have experience of working in a multi-stakeholder environment, excellent communication skills, a proven track record of achieving results and a sound understanding of this rapidly evolving area, we would love to hear from you.
