The successful applicant will be responsible for helping to build on local demand for new economic opportunities, an enhanced tourism offer, and increased collaboration between local groups and initiatives in the Dumfries and Galloway town.

SURF's 2017-18 Alliance for Action feasibility study for Langholm established broad consensus on the town's main strengths. These included its historical significance, a strong culture of community activity, and a high quality physical and natural environment. It also highlighted significant social and economic challenges.

  • Salary: £30,000 (pro rata)

  • Hours: 17.5 hours per week

  • Closing date: Monday 20 August

The primary role of the local facilitator will be to assist in the development of productive, cooperative activity under these themes.

The role presents an exciting and rewarding opportunity to contribute positively to the town's future.
