Falkland Centre for Stewardship - Project Coordinator (Woodland Centre) 

Application Deadline: Sunday 06th December 2015
Salary: £24,000 pro rata per annum
Location: Falkland Estate, Fife
Terms: 18 month fixed term contract, 3 days per week
Line Manager: Stewardship Director, Centre for Stewardship
Responsibilities: N/A – though post-holder will be responsible for appointing and managing contractors.
Purpose of the post:
To actively promote and engage people, particularly young people, in the creation and development of a hub of woodland learning and enterprise on Falkland Estate.
The main priority within the first six months will be to establish and host the WoodWorks programme for young people who wish to learn about woodland culture and ways of making a living from the woods. By summer 2016, we expect to have completed work on the old sawmill that will provide the physical space for indoor work and learning. A variety of projects will operate out of the premises, building on and linking with existing training and volunteering work: neighbouring craft tenants; a community woodfuel project; and Fife Council’s work with children and young people nearby.

The coordinator’s role will be to: develop a dynamic hub of woodland learning and enterprise, in collaboration with those who use the centre and surrounding woods; and to contribute towards the creation of a business model that enables the centre to be sustained and expanded through delivery of courses, contracts and rentals.

By summer 2017, the Coordinator will have facilitated the establishment of this new social enterprise where people learn and practice rural skills, craft activities and environmental work. The centre will provide incubation space for new woodland and craft enterprises as well as a place for hosting: courses and events; environmental community action; training and volunteering opportunities.

The closing date for applications is Sunday 6th December and applicants should send a CV and covering letter to Interviews are scheduled to take place on Friday the 11th of December. For more details please click here
