An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and driven individual to become our new Project Coordinator.

We’re looking for a part-time Project Coordinator for ‘Organising for Power,’ a programme which aims to strengthen movements against racism and xenophobia and for migrants’ rights in Scotland. On its second year running the programme offers grassroots organisers in-depth, long-term training, coaching and support to develop and implement strategic campaigns.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about supporting individuals and groups to organise more effectively for social change. You will share Tripod’s values and be committed and proactive in your work. You will thrive working as part of a small team of people who care about each other, the work we do and how we do it. You will be able to take the work we do seriously while maintaining a sense of fun, creativity and passion. You will be self-aware and able to communicate your own limits. You will be the kind of person who enjoys being self-directed and asking for support from co-workers when needed – you’ll thrive without a boss and be enthusiastic to help shape the work that we do along with your co-workers. You will also be able to offer support to co-workers and get excited about Tripod’s organisational development. You might even be fascinated and curious about group processes and radical education methodologies.

Ideally we are looking for someone who would be keen to join Tripod for the long-term, if the 8 month probationary period works out for us all. We want to work with someone who will grab the opportunities presented by working in Tripod for ongoing learning, take initiative and help make the organisation as useful and relevant as possible to the social and ecological justice campaigns that we support.
