Garden Coordinator, Midlothian Community Hospital Garden (maternity cover)
Cyrenians runs, in partnership with NHS Lothian and Robertson Facilities Management, the Midlothian Community Hospital garden. We focus on welcoming people experiencing mental or physical health problems, disadvantage, isolation or poverty. The gardens offer people fantastic opportunities to grow food, socialise and become more active; we also run regular events, workshops and courses.
We are looking for a highly motivated individual with proven gardening skills, to coordinate activities and supervise hospital patients, staff, volunteers, work placements and a range of other community participants. Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills will enable you to work with a wide range of people from a variety of backgrounds, and a creative approach will ensure that the gardens continue to develop and thrive.
