  • Cumnock
  • Closing 10th August 2020

  • Advertised from 24th July 2020



Corra Foundation is looking for someone with the skills to get alongside the community of Cumnock. This requires the ability to work with a range of stakeholders, build strong relationships and support local people to take forward their own actions to create positive changes. Continued collaboration with key partners including Cumnock Action Plan Steering Group and East Ayrshire Council Vibrant Communities Team will be central to this approach.

The post holder will support increased community participation in Cumnock and connection with Cumnock Action Plan (CAP) which is currently in its fifth year. They will adopt a facilitative approach, supporting the CAP Steering Group to further develop their confidence and skills in engaging with the wider community, complete their current plan, celebrate successes and explore long-term sustainability.

At this point, the post holder may be required to support another community within East Ayrshire.

This is an exciting time to join the team as Corra looks forward to launching our new strategy.

If you have experience of working with communities and share Corra’s commitment to strengthening people’s voices, getting alongside communities and working hard to make a difference then we’d love to hear from you.
