The Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) provides leadership for the National Park, bringing people together towards a common purpose, enhancing the Cairngorms National Park for all, inspiring new generations. The CNPA is an innovative, inclusive organisation, with every employee empowered to contribute towards their aim of being the best small public sector organisation in Scotland. The authority works to ensure that everyone is living, working and caring for the National Park in such a way that it remains to be enjoyed by future generations. CNPA place huge importance and priority on training and actively encourage employees to be well trained and fully equipped to seek promotional opportunities in the organisation. This is supported by their recruitment policy, through which all posts are recruited internally first and only go external if they cannot fulfil them with an internal candidate. The organisation also allows employees to use three days of work time to engage in volunteering activities in the park or work shadowing. During this time they can shadow colleagues on other teams of the organisation to enhance their understanding of those areas of work.
