Are you passionate about the voluntary sector? Do you believe that by working collectively as a city we can tackle some of the issues contributing to poverty and inequality? Enthusiastic, tenacious, a great communicator, you must enjoy dealing with sector leaders and people with passion. Are you up for a challenge? If you like the sound of the above, then Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations’ Council (EVOC) is looking to recruit a part-time Development Worker (Walking & Active Travel).
