About Friends of the Earth Scotland

Friends of the Earth Scotland is Scotland’s leading environmental campaigning group, working to help people in Scotland look after the planet for everyone’s future.

We think globally, and act in Scotland, delivering solutions to climate change and other environmental problems, by enabling and empowering people to take individual and collective action. From plastics to fracking and from air pollution to fossil fuel divestment, we are making a real difference.

● We are committed to democracy, accountability and equality
● We strive to work with communities in our campaigning for positive change
● Our work will always be based on objective evidence and a long-term, global perspective
● We believe that everyone has an equal right to a healthy environment and a fair share in the world’s resources

We have 20 staff and 10 local groups, and are normally based in central Edinburgh.

Equal Opportunities

We would particularly like to encourage applications from BIPOC and people most impacted by climate change or impacted by other kinds of environmental, social, and economic injustice who are currently under-represented in the climate and environmental movements in the UK.

The successful candidate will be selected purely on the basis of how well they fit the person specification, as judged by their application and interview. Where two or more candidates are judged to be of equal merit, priority may be given to a BAME or migrant candidate as these groups are currently under-represented in the climate and environmental movements in the UK.

Volunteering

We occasionally need need help at events (promotion, set up, staffing stalls, raffle ticket sales, etc.). This is a great way to meet like-minded people and practice engaging the public in environmental issues, and we provide all relevant training. We also infrequently have specific, office-based volunteering positions available.

Volunteering opportunities are advertised on this page when they become available. Please sign up to our mailing list to receive updates, or check out our network of local groups for more ways to get involved near you.
