    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:We are looking for individuals who are passionate about climate issues, about Kirkcaldy and about talking to people to help design and run events, workshops and activities, and also provide content for our website and social media.

    Are you able to inspire? Are you passionate about climate change? Do you want to help people to take action in your local community?
    We are looking for individuals who are passionate about climate issues, about Kirkcaldy and like talking to people. You do not need to be a climate expert (we will provide training to get you up to speed), though a little understanding of how individual choices can impact global warming would be helpful (e.g. driving/flying less, avoiding waste, buying local etc) What is more important is being a passionate communicator, having a desire to get the conversation around climate change going and an ability to inspire others in creative ways.
    You will get the experience of working in a dynamic, growing and influential non-profit organisation that is benefitting the environment and making a difference to the lives of people in Fife. You will learn about climate issues, impacts and solutions and enjoy the camaraderie of working as part of a committed team.
