Carrick Knowe is a busy parish church situated in the west of Edinburgh. The church buildings act as a focal point for the community, attracting more than 800 people through the week to a variety of church and community organisations.
We are looking for a Children and Families worker to take forward an existing project which over the past seven years has successfully delivered a range of events for families in our community such as ‘Meal and a Movie’ evenings, Cooking with Children classes, and craft afternoons. There is an established network of volunteers who are available and keen to support the work.
This appointment is for twelve months initially from a mutually agreed start date. The post is part-time, 10 hours per week, paid pro-rata based on an annual salary of £25,624. You will have an operational budget to pay for events and expenses.
We would expect you to work two hours on Sunday morning and two four hour sessions during the week (flexible and negotiable). You will report to the Minister as line manager and Chair Person of the Project, and to the Project Steering Group and Kirk Session.
