Head of Policy – Scotland, Soil Association Scotland

Hours: Full time, 37.5 hours per week (30 hours per week considered)
Contract type: Permanent
Salary: £42,230
Closing date: 10 January 2021
Interviews: expected to take place: online, 19th January 2021

The Soil Association, formed in 1946, is the only UK charity which works across the spectrum of human health, the environment and animal welfare. That’s because we cannot tackle these issues in isolation.

We campaign for change, we support farming innovation, we serve healthy food in communities, we support and grow the organic market and we protect forests. We couldn’t do any of this without our supporters, partners, donors and dedicated staff. We make a difference in the world where it’s needed the most.

About the opportunity
This is an exciting opportunity to lead the Soil Association’s policy advocacy in Scotland on farming and land use, at a pivotal moment as we move beyond the Brexit transition period. The Soil Association is collaborating widely to build a policy framework that can support a ten-year transition to agroecology and sustainable land use. This role will be instrumental in building networks and influence in Scotland to achieve that goal, working closely with the UK Policy Unit and the Director of Soil Association Scotland.
