Opportunity: Create Development Worker with WHALE Arts

13th April 2018

WHALE Arts are recruiting for a Development Worker to help address food insecurity and connect people creatively with dignified food provision, skills development and their community, working with the Living Well Wester Hailes partnership. 

Funded by the Aspiring Communities Fund, which is supported by the European Social Fund and Scottish Government, ‘Tasting Change’ is an exciting project that seeks to respond to local priorities and aspirations in order to support community development and empowerment in Wester Hailes, Edinburgh.  To achieve this, the project will develop and deliver sustainable community-led solutions that tackle deprivation levels and inequalities created by food insecurity.

Tasting Change is being delivered through the Living Well Wester Hailes partnership which includes local organisations, GPs and CEC colleagues. The partners in Tasting Change have signed a consortium agreement that lays out how they will work together across a number of integrated project strands including the Create programme which will be delivered by WHALE Arts.

Working with local people, the Tasting Change project team, and other community partners, the Create Development Worker will be responsible for the development and delivery of activities that connect people creatively with dignified food provision, skills development opportunities and their community.

The Create Development Worker will be a key member of both the WHALE Arts staff team and the multi agency Tasting Change project team.  Excellent communication and a collaborative approach will be central to the success of this innovative role which blends creative programming and community development with project management.

Visit the WHALE Arts website for further information and to find out how to apply. 

Applications should arrive at WHALE Arts Agency no later than 12:00 (midday) on Monday 23rd April. Interviews will be held Monday 30th April.
