RBGE are looking to recruit a Project Manager to deliver a Heritage Lottery Funded initiative exploring and celebrating the natural and cultural heritage of Edinburgh’s shoreline. The post-holder will work with volunteers and six contrasting community groups to co-construct a narrative explaining the history, present-status, and future vision for the Edinburgh’s shoreline, realised through public events and traditional and electronic/social media focussed on ecological change and the City’s relationship with the sea.
