Scottish Environment LINK is looking for a Programme Manager to help set up and develop a new Environmental Rights Centre for Scotland. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to work with us to create a much needed not-for-profit, public interest, environmental law organisation. Supported by and reporting initially to LINK and subsequently to the new ERCS Board, you will work closely with the Development Manager to deliver the vision outlined in our feasibility study of an Environmental Rights Centre for Scotland.

The successful candidate will have strong experience in advocacy, a good knowledge of environmental policy and legal context, ideally in the Scottish context. You will be an excellent communicator, have a naturally collaborative working style, and will thrive in a small, creative team. Experience of developing new initiatives would be an advantage.
