Leave entitlement: 25 days p/a, plus 10 public holidays
Period of Employment: Fixed term, 1 year post (with 3 months probationary period). Potential for a further 1 year extension subject to funding.
The purpose of this new post is to create a sustainable umbrella model that will support individual community transport schemes. This could help with costs like insurance, training and maintenance - but would allow the individual communities to ensure that they were introducing a scheme that worked to their community’s needs.
As a result of this pilot project, we will find a sustainable, replicable model that will help other communities to deliver successful schemes.
This post is the result of a partnership between COMO UK, Community Transport Association (Scotland), Energy Savings Trust and Development Trusts Association Scotland (DTAS).
DTAS will employ a full-time a Community Transport Development Officer on a 2 year basis (initially 1 year) to support DTAS members who are delivering or looking to deliver community transport schemes in their areas.
We will identify 5 geographically dispersed areas as a pilot study and work with them to plan, implement and deliver successful, sustainable community transport schemes in their locality. Entrenched rural transport challenges like a lack of public transport and rising fuel costs that are well evidenced, coupled with the fact that independent community car club schemes are expensive to design and deliver.
