Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations putting culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. Our vision is of a cultural sector that is a key player in shaping a sustainable Scotland through the work it makes and presents, through the way it operates and through its communication with the wider public.
Our mission is to:
• Engage the sector in actively promoting environmental sustainability and addressing climate change
• Help the sector take a lead in shaping an environmentally sustainable Scotland
• Help the sector run itself as environmentally sustainably as possible
We now seek a Project Officer to run projects for CCS and cover day-to-day administration. The main role will be to help develop a framework of environmental measurement, reporting and management for the cultural sector in Scotland and deliver training and support to over 100 arts organisations across the country so that they can begin effectively measuring and reducing their carbon emissions in April 2013. Other responsibilities will include developing and managing the CCS website as a key element of CCS’ work and its main resource for the cultural sector; organising open meetings promoting sustainability in the sector; and general administration.
This role would suit someone with expert knowledge of carbon management and reduction, experience in project and event management and ideally a demonstrable interest in and knowledge of the arts. The Project Officer will need to be able to work on their own as well as with the CCS Director.
Based in Edinburgh with travel throughout Scotland, this is a one year fixed term contract with the possibility of extension.
