This is an exciting new post, with substantial opportunities to develop and implement a new and diverse range of community-based sporting, leisure and recreational projects, intiatives activities, and events. The post is part time, but EDC manager will work with the successful candidate to seek funds to increase these hours as the programme is developed.
The new post holder will be given the opportunity to assist and support Fauldhouse and Breich Valley Community Development Trust (F&BV CDT) as it seeks to develop and implement a wide range of new community-based projects and initiatives.
The post holder will be based at the Eastfield Development Centre (EDC) The EDC is a community facility that F&BV CDT began leasing from West Lothian Council in May 2017.
