CSGNT is currently looking for up to three new Board members. Our Board is responsible for the overall direction and governance of the Trust. To expand the range of skills we currently have on our Board, we are seeking applicants with backgrounds in one or more of the following: finance and governance; work in the third/community sector; housing (private and social) and strategic partnership working. The Board is committed to increasing its own diversity and applications are particularly welcome from currently under-represented perspectives.
These posts are voluntary but reasonable travel expenses will be paid. The time commitment is around 1 day a month. Meetings are generally held at our offices in Shotts. For further information on the Trust and the Board, please contact Deryck Irving on 01501 824770 for an informal discussion.
Closing Date for applications is Friday 28th February. Applications will be reviewed by our Nominations Panel, with recommendations taken to the current Board of Directors on 27th March. The first meeting of the new Board will be held on 5 June.
The Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT) is the charity tasked with driving forward the delivery of the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN).
The CSGN is changing the face of Central Scotland, by restoring and transforming the landscape of an area stretching from Ayrshire and Inverclyde in the west, to Fife and the Lothians in the east. The vision for the CSGN is that: ‘by 2050 central Scotland will have been transformed into a place where the environment adds value to the economy and where people’s lives are enriched by its quality’.
Everything CSGNT does is done in partnership. Our role and activities are complementary to, and supportive of, the wider CSGN network which includes national and local government, the third sector, communities and private sector organisations. Our work covers policy development, project support for partner organisations and the delivery of innovative practical projects. Increasingly, we are supporting partner organisations in developing their land management responses to the Climate Emergency.
