Charity registered in Scotland SC043360
We are currently looking for a Community Development Officer who will support a Lochalsh-wide community consultation, development of community-led Action Plan(s) and take forward projects identified by the community.
We’re looking for a dynamic and committed person who will lead us on our journey as we progress towards long-term sustainability
Kyle & Lochalsh Community Trust (KLCT) was established in August 2012 and is committed to instigating and delivering social, economic and environmental regeneration projects and local services. We are fully focused on improving the quality of life for the residents of Lochalsh and the visitors to our spectacular location on the west coast of Scotland. We aim to achieve the sustainable regeneration of our community which, despite its magnificent geographic setting, has been identified as one of the most economically fragile and deprived in the Highlands. We work to generate income through enterprise and the ownership of assets. As a charitable organisation, all of our trading surpluses are reinvested in the community.
After recent success in a number of funding applications, the Trust is entering a period of growth and is therefore also at a point where we need to develop new ways of working efficiently as an organisation. The ideal candidate will have experience of managing an organisation through change and will understand the particular needs and complexities of a community trust with ambitious plans. S/he will be highly motivated, an excellent communicator, and an experienced manager who can build a strong team ethos.
