Role

CVS Falkirk & District is recognised by Scottish Government and Falkirk Community Planning Partnership as the third sector interface for the Falkirk area. We have a primary role in ensuring the continuation and development of a vibrant third sector (charities, social enterprises, community, and voluntary groups) in Falkirk.

A unique opportunity has arisen to support, develop and progress community activity in Limerigg and Slamannan, Falkirk. The role is offered on a freelance (self-employed) basis and will ideally be fulfilled by someone familiar with or already living in or relatively near to Limerigg or Slamannan.

The person appointed will enter into an agreement with CVS Falkirk funded through the EDF Renewables Burnhead Moss Community Fund which is administered by Foundation Scotland. CVS Falkirk will contract, manage, and support the role-holder on a day-to-day basis. Review meetings involving CVS Falkirk and Foundation Scotland will take place quarterly. It is hoped that a resident reference group will be formed, which will meet an estimated 3-4 times per year to support the role-holder’s work.

This role will support the delivery and further development of new and nascent projects and priorities in the area, building on the ideas and energy of local residents.

The Community Development Officer will be directly involved in supporting and encouraging community activity, community capacity building, and the formation of community groups. The Community Development Officer will also be responsible for working with residents and groups to turn community aspirations into successfully delivered community projects.
