Scots rural charity RSABI is on the hunt for two new members of staff.
The charity, which provides financial assistance to those who have relied on the land in Scotland, is looking for two regional development officers to join its team.
The part-time roles, which require the officer to work three days per week based from home, are for the north-east and south-west regions of Scotland.
The roles will require the officer to help deliver the charity’s priorities.
These are to increase regular income from the charity’s supporter scheme, and to increase the profile and awareness of the charity by organising regional events, facilitating fundraising and building close relationships with stakeholders and volunteers.
The supporter scheme, which is fronted by rugby star Alex Dunbar, allows people to contribute to the charity on an annual basis.
The charity said: “The posts will suit energetic self-starters and communicators with excellent organisational skills, able to work independently from base to organise events and recruit and develop relationships with volunteers throughout the farming and land-based community.”
The roles offer a salary of £24,000 pro-rata for three days a week, and all applicants are required to have a full current driving licence and access to a vehicle.
More information about the vacancies is available online at www.rsabi.org.uk
Applicants are asked to submit an up-to-date CV and covering letter explaining why they feel they have the right qualities, skills and experience for the job.
The closing date for applications, which must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, is Monday, January 25.
Last year RSABI launched a new helpline for farmers, crofters and anyone who has worked on the land.
The helpline 0300 111 4166 – is open every day of the year from 7am to 11pm and is able to handle everything from questions about the benefits system and sources of help on farming issues, to delivering support on personal matters including money troubles and emotional distress.
