Current opportunity

Thank you for your interest in Scotland’s Gardens Scheme and we hope this will inspire you to get involved in a well-loved, national charity that has been at the heart of Scottish horticulture since 1931. We have a small staff team based in Edinburgh (currently home-working) and are largely volunteer-driven, with around 200 regular district volunteers across Scotland, who encourage and support local garden openings. We have an eight-strong team of Trustees and following our recent restructure as a SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation), now wish to recruit an additional four Trustees to build the skills base of our Board. We are particularly interested in candidates with a background in the following areas: Communications and Digital Marketing, Sponsorship, IT, Legal and Human Resources, with an enthusiasm for gardens and horticulture. We are committed to building a diverse Board, so we welcome applications from all sectors of society, regardless of ethnicity, age, gender, disability and/or religious persuasion.
