Transition Homes CLT is hiring!
Transition Homes Community Land Trust is developing low cost, low carbon housing with integrated food production and renewable energy. We have secured planning consent and in principle funding and have appointed builders and a Project Manager to oversee the construction contract which starts soon after Christmas.
We now wish to appoint a part-time project co-ordinator (20 hours a week worked flexibly), initially for 12 months, to cover the busy period of the scheme development including communications, financial oversight, the sale and letting of properties, progressing the fundraising for the community building, evaluation, relationships with stakeholders including funders and the local community, supporting the trustees and volunteers and day to day administration of the CLT. The post will cease to be required once the scheme is complete and all the units are occupied.
This is an exciting role on a cutting-edge project, so applicants need to be enthusiastic about the ethos of the scheme, efficient and able to take the initiative, prioritise a busy workload and able to deal with a wide variety of tasks without regular day to day supervision
The co-ordinator can either be based at the Transition Town Totnes’ offices in Totnes or home based (and able to physically attend Totnes meetings, including at the Clay Park site on a regular basis). The salary will be £25,000 pro-rata (i.e. £13.333 for 20 hours a week for 12 months).
