Who we are

Keep Scotland Beautiful is your charity inspiring action for our environment.

Our vision is for a clean, green, sustainable Scotland.

The Education and Learning Officer will also support learning establishments to engage where appropriate with wider Keep Scotland Beautiful projects.

What you’ll need to have
