  • Home-based
  • Closing 18th April 2019

We are looking for a new Programme Coordinator in an exciting opportunity to support local churches of all denominations in addressing climate change and “caring for God’s creation”.

Founded in 2000, Eco-Congregation Scotland has grown to become the largest movement of community-based environment groups in Scotland with around 450 registered eco-congregations.

This role is ideal for someone looking to work part-time flexible hours from home, with a knowledge of environmental issues and awareness of Scotland’s churches.

The Programme Coordinator will develop and implement a detailed work plan to encourage existing eco-congregations, recruit new ones and support our local voluntary networks.
