Location: Renfrewshire

Employment Basis: 22.5 hours per week 12 month contract


The River Garnock runs through a fascinating landscape, steeped in history and containing a rich industrial heritage. In between the ancient castles, historic mills and old factories, there also lies a wonderful natural world of fresh and salt water habitats, beaufiul woodlands and captivating lowland raised bogs. The Garnock Connections project has been established to reveal and enhance this wealth of industrial and natural heritage, as well as providing an opportunity for local people to connect to their special landscape.


To achieve this, it is vital to have a committed volunteer resource that is able to deliver across the landscape, and effective volunteer engagement will be central to these efforts. As part of this project we are therefore looking to recruit a passionate and commited individual who will work with project partners to improve the scale and effectivness of heritage volunteering within the Garnock connections landscape.


The succesful candidate will engage with heritage organisations, existing volunteers and potential volunteers in the Garnock Connections area to understand the current constraints in relation to volunteering, and identify opportunities for improvement. You will also assist in developing an internet based vounteering hub and deliver volunteer engagement events. We are looking for an individual who has good communication skills with an ability to engage with a range of different audiences. You will also need to be able to work well as part of a team and have the enthusiasm to get involved in a range of different activities.


This post is a training placement as part of the Garnock Connections Heritage Trainees Project. The post is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Green Infrastructure Community engagement Fund.
