Job Description: 

Cyrenians has worked with NHS Lothian to establish two hospital community gardens: one in Morningside, Edinburgh and one in Bonnyrigg, Midlothian.

Each garden was developed to offer hospital patients, staff and visitors, as well as people and groups from the local community, the chance to take part in a range of gardening and nature-based activities.

A welcoming environment, well planned activities, robust day-to-day management, and support for our regular volunteers are key to the gardens’ success.

This role exists to provide cover for our regular garden coordinators and requires a high level of gardening experience. You should also have excellent communication skills, a creative approach, and the ability to demonstrate our values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.

Organisation Profile:

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.
