2024-25 board vacancies

Members who wish to stand for election to the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland board of trustees at the AGM must be nominated by a fellow member. Please note that members may not nominate themselves for election.

To complement the skillsets of current board members, we would be particularly interested to receive nominations for members with:

• Sustainability, media relations, fundraising and digital technology/social media expertise
• Relevant experience as an employee or trustee of another tourism, business or wildlife/conservation organisation.

Successful candidates will also be required to undertake a Basic Disclosure (Scotland) check and an identification check, with their election being confirmed upon satisfactory completion of this process. RZSS will advise elected members on how to undergo these checks and reimburse any expenses incurred.
