Earth for Life CIC is a social enterprise committed to transforming people’s lives through environmental education and eco-therapy using our innovative and life-changing woodland based programmes. We specialise in empowering adults with mental health issues; young people experiencing developmental difficulty; and marginalised community groups using effective eco-therapy methodology.

We know that a skilled and diverse Board is key to our future aims, so we are currently seeking to appoint three new Board Members to help us drive forward our strategic plans, deliver first class services for our clients and achieve our vision.

We are offering an exceptional opportunity for candidates to work with directors from different professional backgrounds; broaden their career horizons and reputation; and put their talents to use by making a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged people in Scotland. Our appointed director will also get to join a minimum of one woodland-based activity day/training/development event per year.

The time commitment is a minimum attendance of quarterly Board meetings, plus contribution to specific board activity. The initial appointment is for 2 years (renewable). Although unremunerated, expenses incurred (travel, subsistence, hotel accommodation) are reimbursed, up to the organisation’s expenses limits.
