Location: Falkirk
Salary starting at £16,504 - £17,880 per annum pro rata
Hours: Part time, 22.5 hours per week
Contract: 10 months

At its core is delivery of eight accessible day-long micro-adventures that meander through the landscape, complementing existing strategic access routes and bringing users into close contact with well interpreted heritage features. Routes will be launched with a collaborative arts project, involving adjacent communities. Smaller one-off events will promote the new routes and the opportunities they offer for exploration of this landscape's heritage.

You will work closely with the Inner Forth Futures Project Officer, our partners and local communities to develop the 'wanderings and windings' trails collaboratively with community groups. In addition, you will help to raise the profile of the area by producing written and visual materials for our website, e-newsletter and social media channels and attending and assisting with delivery of a range of external events.

We are looking for someone with an interest in developing a future career in the environmental or heritage sector. You must have a willingness to learn and to work under your own initiative. This role will include evening and weekend work, sometimes travelling to places with limited access by public transport so a driving license is preferred. Through this post you will benefit from working as part of a dynamic and supportive team and a multidisciplinary partnership. You will have access to a range of training and development opportunities throughout the year to support your personal and professional development.

This post is a 22.5 hour a week, ten month training placement, running from 1 March 2019 to 31 December 2019. It is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
