St Andrews Botanic Garden Trust

Charity registered in Scotland SC036705

St Andrews Botanic Garden holds a globally important botanic collection and is a centre for botanical knowledge. We use our diverse plant collections and expertise to promote and advance the education of diverse communities in the knowledge of botany, horticulture, the environment and other subjects related to the work carried out at the garden. We seek to help people live better and healthier lives through the use of our garden and natural environments and believe that we have a responsibility to understand, value and protect the plants that sustain our world.

Current opportunity

St Andrews Botanic Garden Trust wishes to recruit a trustee to join its Board of Directors at a time of significant organisational transformation. We are looking for capable experienced individuals with a strong professional background who share our enthusiasm for the Trust’s mission and charitable objectives, and who are willing to give their commitment to support the Garden as it navigates this transformation in a challenging environment. Our mission of botanical conservation and education has seen us take transformational steps in a short period of time and our focus now is on consolidation, and preparation for capital investment and growth. Trustees carry out the duties and responsibilities of being a charity trustee and company director, play an important role in the strategic direction of the Garden, and are responsible for ensuring that the Garden observes its charitable objectives, adheres to the principles of good governance, and operates ethically and responsibly.
