Thank you for your interest in the role of Chief Executive of the Central Scotland Green Network Trust.

This is an exciting time to help deliver the largest greenspace initiative of its kind in Europe. We have been making clear progress in developing and supporting initiatives which are designed to change the reality and the perception of central Scotland’s environment. We want that progress to continue.

The role provides a tremendous opportunity to be at the heart of delivering policy change. In working with government, local councils, the third sector and our CSGN partners we have developed a network capable of producing sustainable change.

CSGNT has an experienced, capable and committed workforce engaged in practical projects and policy development in a number of important areas such as vacant and derelict land, active travel and removing environmental blight from some of our most disadvantaged communities.

We have an open minded approach to the background and experience of the person best suited to become our new Chief Executive. So please pursue your interest if the opportunity stirs your desire to make a contribution to transforming many of Scotland’s communities in order that the area becomes a better place to invest in, to visit and, most importantly, to visit.
