Job Opportunity!

We are delighted to be looking for a short-term project worker for our Tourism in Our Community – Going Forward project. 

The purpose of the project is to look forward after our experiences of Covid and its impact on our area and explore the opportunities local tourism offers for economic and social recovery, while scoping out pressure points and how these might be resolved. A large part of the project will involve a consultation with all stakeholders, including local tourism-based businesses, local residents and relevant organisations, e.g. Argyll and Bute Council. From the data collected a local tourism plan will be developed that sets out short, medium and long term goals and works towards a vision for local tourism that benefits the community, enhances the visitor experience and preserves the area’s unique appeal.

The restrictions of the fund are such that there is a very tight timescale with all work to be completed by 31st March 2021. This means that the project is of necessity very early stage, with a focus on gathering and collating information. The successful applicant will have good local knowledge and transferrable skills such as good communication, IT and team-working. The project worker will work on a self-employed basis. Salary will be £150 per day for up to 30 days. 

It is hoped that the project worker will be able to start as soon as possible. We are open to flexible arrangements such as joint applications as long as the project is completed on time. 
Please get in touch if you have any questions, would like to discuss this opportunity or wish to receive the Project Brief and Application Information. (Closing date for applications is 14/02/2021)
