Cumbernauld Living Landscape has two exciting opportunities for a Project Manager and a Communications Officer to be part of the next phase of our award winning work.

Famous for its 1950’s New Town design, Cumbernauld is home to 52,000 people and a surprising diversity of wildlife. Natural heritage is one of the town’s greatest assets, with woodland, parks and open spaces covering 50% of its area. However, today this natural network is under threat, fragmented and under-appreciated.

Working with young people and the local community the project will connect people to the nature on their doorsteps. Biodiversity and access improvements will form the foundation for volunteering and skills development that will unlock community capacity. These activities will inspire more people to care about local heritage and use nature to improve their well being. The relationships developed will create a more sustainable legacy for the town’s green spaces and the many benefits they bring.

An experienced project manager is needed to lead the delivery of the multi partner programme, working closely with project staff, community organisations and partners to deliver and ambitious programme of integrated capital projects and activities.

An experienced communications professional is also required to lay the foundations for high-quality and effective communications to be delivered by the project team. They will work closely with the team and partners to establish clear processes for generating creative content and develop marketing material to support delivery.

The Creating Natural Connections project will run until 2022 and builds on the work we have already done to reconnect people and wildlife in the town. This new phase has been made possible thanks to financial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and our project partners.

Applications for both posts close on Tuesday 5 February 2019. More information is available from the Scottish Wildlife Trust.
