Job Vacancy – Administrator, Church and Society Council Climate Change Project.

Administrator – Part Time 17.5 hours per week – Church and Society Council (Climate

Change Project) £20,839 – £22,603 pro rata per annum, Edinburgh

An opportunity has arisen to join a small team in the Church of Scotland helping

congregations to respond to climate change. This ground breaking project supports

churches across Scotland and helps them to become ‘eco-congregations’ taking action to

measure and reduce their carbon footprint. The Church is working in partnership with the

other denominations, NGOs including Christian Aid and SCIAF and the Scottish Government

to promote this work through the charity Eco-Congregation Scotland. This work has been

recognised and copied internationally.


Working to the Climate Change Officer you will help provide vital support to congregations

by maintaining and keeping up to date web based resources, social media; and by helping to

arrange meetings and events. There will also be a chance to take part in work of the Church

of Scotland green group, to help promote environmental action in church offices.

You will be well organised, confident and a good team player. A knowledge of web base

communications and social media is essential and an interest in environmental issues a real

advantage. Ref 15/13
