Do you care about climate change? Do you want to help people take action in their local community? Are you able to motivate others?

We are looking for individuals who are passionate about climate issues, about Kirkcaldy and like talking to people. You do not need to be a climate expert (we will provide training to get you up to speed), though a little understanding of how individual choices can impact global warming would be helpful (e.g. driving/flying less, reusing, buying local etc) What is more important is being a passionate communicator, having a desire to get the conversation around climate change going and an ability to inspire others in creative ways.

You will get the experience of working in a dynamic, growing and influential non-profit organisation that is benefiting the environment and making a difference to the lives of people in Fife. You will learn about climate issues, impacts and solutions and enjoy the camaraderie of working as part of a committed team.

This volunteer role is funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) as part of our ‘Let’s move up a gear!’ project which aims to promote cycling activities and to run a programme of climate change awareness events.

Commitment

  • Varied depending on which activities you are involved in, but likely to be a few days a month. Time commitment would be expected to increase on run-up to and during events.
  • Activities and events usually take place Monday – Friday, with some evening work if delivering events. We are happy to be flexible to suit you.
  • 2 consecutive days to attend Climate Literacy Training (midweek) on date TBC.
