The Isle of Kerrera Development Trust is the community organisation for the Isle of Kerrera. Its aims are to represent the views of islanders and to forward project and initiatives which will benefit both islanders and visitors alike. We have an active Board of ten residents, and membership on island is high, representing 85% of the adult population.

Residents have long held an ambition to bring the former school building back into community use. The Isle of Kerrera Development Trust (IKDT) recently secured a Scottish Land Fund award which will enable the community to purchase the former school from the Argyll and Bute Council, with the aim of re-developing it into a community hub to meet the needs of our thriving community.

At this stage, IKDT is seeking an experienced freelance project manager with strong fundraising skills and project management experience who can effectively support the IKDT Board and Steering Group to deliver key tasks associated with redeveloping the former school, including fundraising and renovation, in order to get us to the point where the school is ready to become operational as a community hub.
