Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park covers over 720 square miles of Scotland’s finest countryside which welcomes over 4 million visitors each year. From the stunning sea lochs and rugged coastline through the majestic glens and breath taking Loch & Ben Lomond, Scotland’s first National Park truly is a magical place.

Candidates are likely to have a background in environmental and/or green health project development, strong commercial acumen, good understanding of the relevant sectors and evidence of previous success in developing and delivering medium-large scale projects. A track record in income generation, marketing and fundraising would be desirable.
