Zero Waste Scotland to recruit first chair and board members


As it gets ready to split from WRAP, Zero Waste Scotland is looking to recruit its first chair and board.

The organisation will move to a new corporate structure in July and will be independent of WRAP. It is therefore seeking candidates for board positions with relevant experience of resource management, energy efficiency or the circular economy sectors.


Zero Waste Scotland director Iain Gulland (pictured) said: “As a result of our forthcoming transition to a Scottish-based organisation, Zero Waste Scotland will be even better placed to integrate its work with Scottish delivery partners.

“During this exciting phase in our development to a stand-alone organisation with a broader remit to deliver on than ever before, we are looking for committed, experienced individuals to lead our corporate governance and ensure our continued effectiveness.

“Meanwhile, the staff team will continue to progress work accelerating Scotland towards a more circular and resource efficient economy.”

The new chair will lead and represent the board of Zero Waste Scotland in the governance of the organisation, to ensure it can move forward on the right strategic path. Zero Waste Scotland is looking for applicants that have a proven track record as chair of a high profile committee or board in the commercial, public or voluntary sectors.

While the non-executive directors of Zero Waste Scotland will support the executive leadership team and chair in the development of the organisation as an independent body. They will have joint responsibility with other board members for leading Zero Waste Scotland in accordance with the agreed policy objectives and vision.
