Community Land Scotland is the representative body for Scotland’s aspiring and established community landowners. Although the initial focus for acquisition was in the rural North West of Scotland, there has been growing interest in community landownership in the South of Scotland area, defined with the same boundaries as the new South of Scotland Enterprise Agency.

To support the growing number of communities aspiring to buy land and assets in the South of Scotland, and to build wider support for community ownership of land and buildings, Community Land Scotland are looking to appoint a Development Officer to lead this work. This role will work from home but be closely linked into the Community Land Scotland staff team and Board.
