We work hand in hand with the Scottish Waterways Trust, the charity associated with Scotland's canals.

The Scottish Waterways Trust vision is to engage people and communities to discover the Scottish canals' hidden treasures, wildlife, culture, history and landscapes.  Together, we make a real difference to the canals and their communities.

We are an exciting business, and our people help make the canals what they are.  In return you'll have the chance to learn new skills and develop your experience - whether you work for us or on a volunteer project.  Caring for the canals while transforming them into a vibrant part of canalside communities is a dynamic role, and offers opportunities across many sectors.
