The Shieling Project
Posted: 16 Jan 2023
Deadline: 1 Feb 2023
Compensation: £750 per month
This post is a very practical job that will be rewarding for a couple, or two good friends, who like working with children and groups, cooking and teaching others about food, simple building tasks, solving problems, and working outdoors with their hands! During residential bookings you will work for two hours in the morning over breakfast time, and four hours in the evening through dinner and after dinner activities. This will involve cooking and cleaning with the groups, making sure the educational opportunities in these activities are maximised, as well as delivering a range of educational activities in the evenings. When there are no residential bookings the role will involve work for 5 hours per day, or 25 hours per week. The tasks for this will be wide ranging, from site maintenance and building, to crofting (like feeding the livestock or cleaning them out). These hours can be completed as and when the staff would like (i.e. all over a few days, or spread out over the week). The post involves working with young people, teachers and volunteers to deliver high quality educational activities whilst ensuring safety.

About The Shieling Project
The Shieling Project is an off-grid learning centre in the Highlands of Scotland. We have two sites – in Glen Strathfarrar near Beauly, and in Gartymore near Helmsdale. The project is all about outdoor living – from looking after our livestock to making real buildings and weaving baskets to making burgers from the meat we have raised here.
