Every day TCV works across the UK to create healthier and happier communities for everyone - communities where our activities have a lasting impact on people's health, prospects and outdoor places.
We’re a UK-wide organisation with a local approach. We draw on all the expertise and experience from TCV and its partners across the UK, but we deliver local solutions to meet local needs.
We are ambitious in Scotland to achieve more for people AND for greenspaces and we have two exciting opportunities for leaders to join our team.
Our work is extremely varied and rewarding. You could be managing HLF funded programmes to engage Syrian refugees in their local natural heritage, setting up Citizen Science engagement, running projects which make the outdoors more accessible to people with Autism or dementia or supporting our regular volunteer teams who make a massive difference to the habitat management and accessibility of greenspaces across the Central Belt. We also deliver health programmes in partnership with the NHS and the renowned TCV Green Gym programme which supports people across the UK to get outdoors, active and healthy whilst connecting to their local community and greenspaces.
All our projects focus on delivery of outcomes for both people and the environment – so we are interested to hear from Team leaders with experience across a range of health, employability, ME and accessibility engagement as well as those with experience of managing environmental projects.
For full detail of the specification please see the full job description.
In summary, the key responsibilities/result areas include:
• Leading up to eight TCV project staff and supporting them to deliver a range of projects with our volunteers
• Project management and oversight
• Supporting identification of new ideas and funding opportunities
The role can be based in either our Glasgow, Edinburgh or Stirling offices and will include Scotland-wide travel.
A bit more about us:
We recognise that each community and the people living there have different needs. Whether improving wellbeing, conserving a well-loved outdoor space or bringing people together to promote social cohesion and combat loneliness, TCV works together with communities to deliver practical solutions to the real life challenges they face.
For over 50 years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all.
Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.
