People interested in the promotion, care and sustainable management of Scotland’s nature are being invited to apply to join the Board of Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH).

Scottish Ministers are looking to appoint three new SNH Board members from 1 April 2013, to work as part of the organisation’s strategic leadership team and make sure it delivers on Government priorities.

Andrew Thin, SNH chairman, said: “Scottish Parliament and Ministers look to SNH to help deliver the sustainable management of nature and landscape. That’s a huge responsibility, given that nature is our greatest asset. The Board has a vital role in making sure it is fulfilled effectively and efficiently.”

Current expertise represented on the SNH Board include farming, estate management, fisheries research, marine pollution, environmental management, energy, education, aquaculture and wildlife management.

Mr. Thin added: “It’s not necessary to have a detailed understanding of science and the natural heritage. We’re looking for people with the experience to help lead a large and complex public service organisation in a non executive capacity.”

Application packs are available from the public appointments website: click on with a closing date of December 21st.
