Do you care deeply about the environment and how we can all play a role in protecting it? Have you gained relevant experience and built a network of contacts in the litter prevention and environmental resource management industry?
If so, we have a fantastic opportunity for you to put your skills to use in a forward-thinking organisation in one of the most stunning landscapes in the world.
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park covers over 720 square miles of Scotland’s finest countryside which welcomes more than four million visitors each year. With half of Scotland’s population living within an hour’s drive of the National Park the area provides amazing opportunities to get out into nature. At present one of the negative consequences of high visitor numbers, often in more rural parts of the National Park, is the amount of waste that is generated, and often discarded as litter. We need to change that, and we want your expertise to help us do that.
This is a unique opportunity to play a significant role in driving positive change across the National Park, where addressing the issue of litter is one of our top priorities in Our 5-Year Plan.
You will be responsible for developing our litter strategy, building excellent relationships with key stakeholders using your knowledge and experience to work with a broad range of partners to develop and then implement a joined-up litter strategy for the National Park.
Using your strong stakeholder engagement skills, you will take forward our strategic objectives and build a profile within this area of work. Working with partners is key to this role and to tackling the issue of litter in the National Park.
You will hold a relevant degree or equivalent experience and be able to demonstrate strong organisational skills with experience of developing and implementing project plans successfully.
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park Authority is more than just a great place to work, it’s an organisation that is ambitious and innovative, where our people can make a real difference. Our Balloch headquarters is within easy reach of both Glasgow and Stirling, with ample car parking onsite, a cycle to work scheme and a train station nearby. Staff members can also take advantage of a wide range of staff benefits, a great pension scheme and flexible working hours
The National Park Authority is committed to equal opportunities and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
