The role is being advertised on a flexible, 20 hours a week basis, with the existing contract for 12 months. The successful candidate will support the existing team deliver a range of events and promotional activities, as well as providing support services for the organisation.

Kirkcudbright Development Trust’s Community Development Officer, Debbie Craig, said:

“Being able to offer this new role is a measure of the success of our organisation to continue to create opportunities and projects for our community. This could not have been achieved without the support of the Galloway Glens Scheme, for which we are incredibly grateful. 


The role is 50% funded through the Galloway Glens Scheme, itself supported by a range of partners including the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Drax, the owners of the Galloway Hydro Scheme. Jan Hogarth, Galloway Glens Education & Community Engagement officer, added:

“We are absolutely delighted to be working with the Kirkcudbright Development Trust to bring on another member of their team, supporting their capacity to grow and expand. It’s another successful step forward for the Kirkcudbright Development Trust’s future ambitions and we see this role as cementing and embedding the great legacy of recent work.
This job really will be offering something different every day and, being offered on a flexible, 20 hours a week basis, could suit a whole range of people.”
