The primary requirement of the role is to support and deliver a program of Employee Action Days, providing volunteering opportunities for TCV’s corporate partners. This will involve leading and supervising groups of corporate volunteers in practical conservation tasks on partner’s projects.

You will be engaging with local partners and community groups to develop interesting, meaningful tasks for these groups. The role will require delivery of Employee Action Days predominantly in Edinburgh but also in other areas of Scotland. Successful candidates will work closely with local Senior Project Officers supporting the development of new projects and volunteering opportunities.

Other elements of the role will include, but not be limited to -


  • Health and safety management, including producing risk assessments.
  • Quantifying and ordering materials in line with procurement policies.
  • Managing TCV’s local resources, including the office, tools, and vehicles.
  • Assisting with controlling the project budgets.
  • Engaging with appropriate local groups and partners.
  • Using online and offline materials to promote TCV’s work to new partners and individuals.


This role is offered at 35 hours per week and is a permanent position. Core hours are to be agreed dependant on service delivery and to be managed through TOIL.


A bit more about us:


We recognise that each community and the people living there have different needs. Whether improving wellbeing, conserving a well-loved outdoor space or bringing people together to promote social cohesion and combat loneliness, TCV works together with communities to deliver practical solutions to the real life challenges they face.


For over 50 years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all.


Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.
