Role

We’re Hiring! We’re looking for a great community gardener to join our fab, award-winning team at Grow West Fife.

GWF was set up in lockdown 2020 to grow food for anyone in need. Last year our volunteers gave 5000 hours growing fruit and veg, cooked 1000 free meals for people on low incomes or socially isolated, and worked with fabulous local groups like Andy’s Man Club, Fairway Fife and Change Mental Health to make sure everybody’s welcome. Their efforts were rewarded when we won Fife Voluntary Action’s Green Charity of the Year award.

Now we’re looking for an experienced gardener to help us grow more fruit, veg and new friendships at our volunteer-led, socially inclusive, beautiful walled garden overlooking the Forth in Culross.

Our ideal candidate will be a great gardener, passionate about growing and sharing growing skills and knowledge, with good experience of working with community groups and people with different abilities and needs. They’ll be ‘front of house’ with the necessary warmth and people skills to get the kettle on and ensure everyone feels incredibly welcome and comfortable with us. It is, first and foremost, a place of joy.

Hopefully they’ll be able to share that joy on social media to draw in new volunteers and visitors.

It’s a Tuesday to Saturday job and salary will be between £26,000 and £28,000 depending on experience.
