It has been a very successful year and the team is expanding. We are currently recruiting a full time community engagement officer and two summer volunteer interns. These posts, based in Cumbernauld, will share our pride in the town's greenspaces and be on the front line of efforts to make them better. 

Job opportunity 

The Community Engagement role has evolved from a partnership with The Conservation Volunteers. Through the Living Landscape and the Natural Communities traineeships we have shown what can be achieved working with communities. This two year project deliver practical initiatives that bring real change to local greenspaces and young peoples lives. We will work closely with Cumbernauld’s wide-ranging youth communities to help design and deliver urban greenspace improvements, improve wildlife habitats and celebrate the town’s natural heritage. If you think you have the skills to engage young people and inspire action then apply before 4th May.
