Scottish Rural Action has received funding from the Scottish Government to deliver an exciting new initiative for rural Scotland. The Rural Parliament will provide those who live and work in Scotlandís rural communities with an opportunity to come together, to consider rural priorities with a wide range of public bodies, to agree specific policy proposals and in due course, present these to the appropriate bodies. The Rural Parliament will also be a major celebration of rural Scotland, its people, places, products and achievements.
The Rural Parliament has been inspired by those that have emerged elsewhere in Europe over the past 25 years. As with these European examples, it is anticipated that Scotlandís Rural Parliament will be underpinned by the consolidation of a wider rural movement.
We are seeking an exceptional individual who is passionate and knowledgeable about rural Scotland, capable of communicating complex messages at many different levels and possesses a track record of building successful relationships between different sections of the community. He/she will put in place all the necessary arrangements for the inaugural Scottish Rural Parliament which is to be held in late autumn 2014. The business plan sets out a tight timetable of work to be delivered which will include establishing an Advisory Forum of rural organisations and interests, building interest from across the wider community, identifying key issues to be addressed by the Rural Parliament and seeking additional funding as required.
Organisation profile:
Scottish Rural Action recently formed as a company limited by guarantee with the sole purpose of delivering the inaugural Scottish Rural Parliament.
