We are facing a climate emergency. How Scotland's land is used and managed is a big part of the solution to climate change and we need the right policies in place to make progress.

RSPB Scotland's Land Use Policy team is working hard to make the case for farming, forestry and other land use policies that will help us combat climate change and save nature. We now have a vacancy for an experienced Senior Policy Officer to join us to work on land use and climate change issues and lead our policy advocacy and campaigning.

The ideal candidate will have excellent knowledge of land use and climate change policy in Scotland and of relevant institutions and other stakeholders in this field. Good communication skills and an understanding of the importance of communications and campaigns in supporting policy advocacy are essential. If you have strong organisation skills, are enthusiastic and persuasive and enjoy working as part of a team, we'd like to hear from you.
