Cockburnspath and Cove Community Council wish to secure the services of an experienced Community Development Worker to lead community engagement within this small and fairly fragile community in Berwickshire. Our aim is to develop a community action plan, leading to tangible projects and activities which support social cohesion and common good.
Cockburnspath and Cove are “on the edge” of the map in terms of services and facilities. As such, creating a dynamic, inclusive and cohesive society brings its own set of particular challenges. Experience of working within such an environment is therefore essential, as is familiarity with community development principles. Familiarity with the Planning for Real process is desirable.
The post will initially be for 10 months, on a freelance basis only. 10 hrs /week are available at a pro rata salary of £27500. Hours will be worked flexibly, to facilitate engagement with harder to reach groups, and ensure their inclusion in this important process for our community.
Role profile and further details are available from firstname.lastname@example.org and applications are invited in the form of a CV and covering letter by 5pm on 26th September 2019. Applications should all be electronic.
