Working at Friends of the Earth Scotland

“Our vision is of a world where systems of power and resource use are transformed so that all living beings and ecosystems have what they need to flourish, now and in the future.” (Friends of the Earth Scotland – Strategy 2024 – 2026)

We are Scotland’s leading environmental campaigning group and work to help people in Scotland to look after the planet for everyone’s future. Working with us will give you the opportunity to be part of a strong and collaborative team that is tackling head-on one of the biggest challenges facing our society.

You will help us deliver transformative solutions to climate change and other environmental problems. Whether campaigning for a Just Transition or working behind the scenes in our Operations Team, your work will enable and empower people to take individual and collective action.

We are looking for people who share and will uphold our values throughout their employment with Friends of the Earth Scotland.

FoES’ values as defined by our organisational strategy 2024-2026


From the first step you decide to take with us, we will make sure you get all the support you need to be the best you can be as part of our team. If you are considering applying for a role with us, our Recruitment Pack [coming soon] will give you an insight into what to expect throughout your journey.


We are an Equal Opportunities Employer

We are committed to offering equal employment opportunity for all and to providing employees with a work environment free of discrimination and harassment.

We are committed to finding the right people for the jobs that we advertise. All employment and recruitment decisions are based on organisational needs, job requirements and individual qualifications, without regard to race, colour, religion, sexuality, gender identity or belief or any other status protected by the Equality Act 2010.

We are committed to increase the diversity of our team and encourage applications from people currently under-represented in the climate and environmental movement. We are working hard to create a space in which people from all walks of life see themselves. We therefore particularly encourage you to apply if you belong to one of these groups or sit at the intersections of multiple systems of oppression.

We monitor Equal Opportunities at Friends of the Earth Scotland as part of the application process. All Equal Opportunities forms are removed from applications prior to short listing.


Volunteering opportunities

We will, at times, offer volunteering opportunities for specific occasions, such as helping during events. This can be a great way to meet like-minded people and practice engaging the public in environmental issues. All training and relevant information will be provided ahead of time.

All opportunities are advertised on this page when they become available.


Current opportunities

We do not have any vacancies at the moment, but you can find out more below on how you can still make an impact and help us achieve our vision.
