Access and Conservation vacancy

Tuesday 10th October 2017, 10:07am

Mountaineering Scotland is recruiting a full-time Access & Conservation Officer.

The work is of critical importance to our members, and presents a real opportunity to influence the future of Scotland’s mountains and uphold rights to responsible access.

David Gibson, CEO, said: “We are seeking an experienced and qualified individual, who has the confidence and ability to engage with and influence a range of organisations.”

Mountaineering Scotland’s policy aims and work programme are informed by consultation with members, and are summarised in the vision and policy statement Respecting Scotland’s Mountains and by subsequent research focusing on members’ conservation priorities.

The new post will be both proactive and reactive, seeking to influence decision makers by working with a range of partner organisations and through direct involvement with the Scottish Government and its agencies, and also responding to consultations which have implications for mountaineering activities or the mountain landscape, and to specific national and local access and conservation issues.

David added: “We are seeking an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and influential individual with relevant skills and experience to join our team and take forward our priorities in this area.”
