We are looking for committed, experienced individuals to lead our corporate governance and ensure our continued effectiveness

Zero Waste Scotland, which is moving to a new corporate structure in July, has announced it is recruiting its first chair and board.

Zero Waste Scotland is funded by the Scottish Government to support the delivery of its Zero Waste Plan. It works to maximise the efficient use of some of Scotland’s most valuable resources – materials, energy and water – to achieve economic and environmental benefits.

Currently part of the UK-based Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP), from July 2014 Zero Waste Scotland will operate as an organisation in its own right.

It is seeking candidates for board positions with relevant experience of resource management, energy efficiency, or the circular economy sectors.

Iain Gulland, director, Zero Waste Scotland, said: “As a result of our forthcoming transition to a Scottish-based organisation, Zero Waste Scotland will be even better placed to integrate its work with Scottish delivery partners.

“During this exciting phase in our development to a stand-alone organisation, with a broader remit to deliver on than ever before, we are looking for committed, experienced individuals to lead our corporate governance and ensure our continued effectiveness.”
