18.5 hrs over 3 days
Type of Contract: 
Part Time
Job Description: 

The Walled Garden is around a half acre of ground within Dollar Park, Falkirk.
Falkirk Justice Services renovated the walled garden after it fell into disrepair and Cyrenians assumed responsibility for the day to day management of the garden in August 2015.

The aim of the garden is to manage a programme of maintenance and development for those on community payback orders to participate in, and to bring back into use a beautiful space that is open to public.

The post holder will be responsible for the support and management of people on community payback orders and the engagement of volunteers to ensure that we meet these aims. 

We are looking for a skilled and dynamic individual with a “can do” attitude and a genuine interest in gardens and working outdoors. Knowledge of the Justice system is desirable and excellent interpersonal skills will enable you to motivate and inspire participants to get the most out of the opportunities that the garden presents. You should also have the ability to demonstrate Cyrenians values of Compassion, Respect, Integrity and Innovation in the work that you do.

Organisation Profile:
Cyrenians is a charity working towards a society that truly values and includes all. Our Vision is of an inclusive society in which we all have the opportunities to live valued and fulfilled lives. We work to make that vision a reality through our mission to support people excluded from family, home, work or community on their life journey.
