Due to the retirement of the current post-holder the Trust has a vacancy for a Project Coordinator. This is a unique opportunity for a creative and caring individual with excellent organisational, administrative and volunteer management skills to play a leading role in the running and development of a highly successful community project aimed at enhancing the wellbeing of residents of the Perthshire village of Stanley.
Working in partnership with existing groups and statutory services, the successful applicant will coordinate and support volunteers to run a time bank offering opportunities to local people to devote some of their spare time to helping others. Activities undertaken by members range from dog walking, gardening, shopping to more specialised tasks.
The post holder will be required to recruit and train a group of befrienders to support individuals at risk of social isolation and loneliness. And to support a volunteer group that runs a lunch club aimed at reducing loneliness.
