Tweedsmuir is a remote rural area in the Scottish Borders. It is within the Upper Tweed locality of Scottish Borders Council and is bounded to the South by Dumfries and Galloway Council and by South Lanarkshire Council to the West. The small population is scattered over a wide area. Tweedsmuir is one of the most sparsely populated areas in the Borders and is within the top 10% most deprived areas in Scotland for its geographical isolation.
Tweedsmuir Community Company (TCC), a registered charity, is looking to employ a part-time Community Development Manager, to help with delivery of their new 5-year Community Action Plan (CAP).
This plan sets out the actions needed to ensure Tweedsmuir continues to develop and thrive as a vibrant and sustainable community, to shape its future, address its needs and make the most of its assets.
The plan clearly identified the need for a Community Development Manager. Working in partnership with the community and other organisations and agencies they will take the lead to ensure the delivery of the plan’s ambitious objectives.
The postholder should be passionate about community engagement, development and capacity building with a demonstrable record of delivery, able to turn ideas into action and engage with and influence a range of stakeholders.
The delivery of the new CAP will offer new challenges for the board of TCC, who have previously managed specific projects, with clear objectives, delivered by a funded contractor appointed by the TCC, contributing to the successful delivery of the first CAP. The requirement of the TCC to respond to the needs and aspirations of Tweedsmuir will be an increasing challenge for the small board of volunteers, as the size and scope of the projects increases. The success of the organisation so far has relied heavily on a huge amount of volunteer input.
The Community Development Manager will report regularly to the Board and feedback to Tweedsmuir Community Council (the body which has ownership of the CAP), and will deliver outcomes based on the decisions made through discussions between Community Council and the Community Company.
Key Areas within the role
By the end of the six-month period of development the TCC should have cemented their partner working and improved both internal and external communication

Salary - £16,016 (£40,040 pro rata)
