  • Falkland Stewardship Trust - Project Coordinator

    Created: 20/12/2017

    Post: Project Coordinator
    Hours: 35 per week
    Salary: £26,500

    Falkland Stewardship Trust in collaboration with Reforesting Scotland's Thousand Huts Campaign and other project and academic partners have secured funding to pilot a year of hut building and use on Falkland Estate. Their aim is to test out a concept and model that can be replicated and scaled-up on a national basis in coming years. Their big idea is to involve a range of participants in the building and use of huts and other simple structures in outdoor environments as a means of:

    • Providing quality skills training to enable people to gain competencies and move along the employment pathway e.g. to volunteering, training or work;
    • Increasing confidence and self-efficacy as people realise their potential;
    • Enhancing people's wellbeing and sense of connection to the natural world;
    • Experimenting together with ways of building great huts and teams;
    • Creating a sustainable model of training in building and/or use of huts in the countryside as a social enterprise.

    The majority of project participants will be drawn from a range of groups across Fife and further afield that engage people who are disadvantaged such as: lack of access to employment; financial poverty; social, economic or health factors; substance misuse; mental health issues; homelessness; low confidence or self esteem.

    Please note the closing date for applications is Monday 15 January 2018.
