The role of ECCAN’s Members Support and Events Lead is dynamic and multifaceted, serving as an important bridge between the members and the organisation. Operating within Edinburgh’s four localities, this person will frequently travel and be the primary point of contact for the network’s members, offering project development support and enabling groups to take forward their ideas.

This is an exciting opportunity for an individual who is passionate about community engagement to support the development of community climate action plans, climate resilience plans, or local place planning for groups, organisations, and neighbourhoods in Edinburgh.

You will be a hands-on, adaptable and approachable coordinator who can diligently curate and distribute resources, ensuring their relevance and accessibility for ECCAN’s membership while also designing and administering feedback mechanisms to sustain member participation.

This will include planning and delivering in ECCAN’s in person and virtual events of different scales throughout the year and building capacity of member organisations to deliver compelling climate and social justice activities of their own.

This will involve conducting outreach talks and workshops for groups, managing and collaborating effectively with volunteers, liaising with speakers and trainers, and delivering sessions on carbon literacy and other pertinent topics across Edinburgh’s localities.
