WWF Scotland is one of the country’s leading environmental charities. As part of WWF-UK, we contribute to the success and continued efforts of a global network (active in more than 100 countries, and with over five million supporters) committed to safeguarding the natural world and creating solutions to the most important environmental challenges facing the planet, so people and nature can thrive.

WWF Scotland currently works on securing policy solutions to the challenges of tackling climate change, securing a renewable energy future and protecting our marine environment.  We aim to develop and present solutions supported by the public, academia, businesses, politicians and government in order to secure lasting and positive change for the environment, and are currently developing our next strategic plan to start in July 2018.

In planning for the succession of Council Members we are inviting expressions of interest for this rewarding role, and at this time are particularly keen to hear from individuals who have extensive experience in either of the following:

  • campaigning and public engagement

  • expertise in devolution, in particular EU environmental regulation and the constitutional/policy implications of Brexit for environmental policy in Scotland

The purpose of the Advisory Council is to enhance the effectiveness and public standing of WWF Scotland as part of WWF-UK and the wider WWF network, by providing advice, scrutiny and accountability. Members of the Advisory Council will be expected to attend the quarterly meetings in Edinburgh. In addition, Council members also contribute individually to the work of the organisation when appropriate and as available, for instance in contact with the Director and team members on areas of particular interest and/or expertise, or representing WWF Scotland at certain events.

Please contact us at the address below, providing your CV and a letter of introduction highlighting relevant experience, skills and qualifications, and if applicable, your existing knowledge of the work of WWF in Scotland, or elsewhere.

Note: the role is voluntary and non-statutory.
