Our organisation

We’re working to create a more circular economy where products and materials are kept in high value use for as long as possible. A large part of our work is helping individuals and businesses to become more resource efficient. This all contributes to the Scottish Government’s circular economy strategy and the EU’s Europe 2020 growth strategy.

This role is based in our Stirling office located next to Stirling railway station and is conveniently accessed from across central Scotland.
