The Scottish Government has launched a campaign to recruit new members to SEPA’s Board, and take up the post in January 2014. For full details of what's involved, or to apply online, visit the public appointments website.
SEPA protect and improve the environment and aim to be an excellent environmental regulator. They help business and industry to understand their environmental responsibilities and enable customers to comply with legislation and good practice, as well as realising the many economic benefits of good environmental practice.
SEPA's Chairman, David Sigsworth, said:
"This is a great opportunity to further augment the experience and skills of an already effective and high profile Agency Board, focused on protecting and improving Scotland's environment. We're looking for people who are not only passionate about the environment, but also understand the importance it has in contributing to the overall economic and social well-being of Scotland."
"This will be a challenging and rewarding role with a real lasting impact, helping to shape our strategic direction, whilst helping deliver a streamlined environmental regulation system, first class environmental science and excellent customer services."
Appointments to the Board are made by Scottish Ministers and are regulated by the Commissioner for Public Appointments in Scotland. Completed applications must be received on or before 30 August 2013, with a successful candidate taking up their post in January 2014. Appointment is normally for a four-year term with the possibility of a further term, subject to evidence of effective performance and satisfying the skills, knowledge and personal qualities required on the Board at the time of re-appointment.
