BECTU hiring Screen Sustainability Manager for Scotland

In the week that COP-26 kicks off in Glasgow, trade union BECTU, which represents workers in film and television production, is promoting a new role to improve sustainable practice in the screen industries in Scotland.

This new position of Screen Sustainability Manager has been created to drive and co-ordinate the Scottish screen sector’s response to the climate crisis with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of film and television production across Scotland.

The role will be based with the union’s skills and training department in Scotland, BECTU Vision, and will play a pivotal role in embedding sustainability practice across film and TV production in Scotland by supporting productions and practitioners to develop and implement new ways of working.

Accompanying this work will be the creation of a business case for a longer-term Screen Sustainability Hub which will provide a centre of expertise for environmental sustainability development and knowledge dissemination.

The project has received support from across Scotland with funding from Screen Scotland, Scottish Enterprise, South of Scotland Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Glasgow City Council.
