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
