We are recruiting three creative community workers to work with us and the Fittie Community Development Trust (FCDT) to deliver our Culture Collective project.
These roles are imagined for experienced artists and creative practitioners who are looking to bring their creative skills to contribute to wider society. The three posts are:

- Visitors and migration: This post will further a project focusing on stories of migration in Aberdeen, linking with visitors, other harbourside communities and Aberdeen Harbour.
- Climate Ready community: This post will focus on the impacts of climate change for coastal communities and the transition to net-zero carbon emissions, including community-owned energy.
Each creative community worker post is offered as a freelance contract for six months full-time with a total fee of £18,932 each, paid in monthly instalments in arrears. Contracts are flexible and can be spread out part-time over a year. Joint or group applications for each post are welcome. Applicants are asked to state which post they are applying for but can apply for more than one within the same application. No applicant will be offered more than one post.
All posts will be supported by Open Road and a dedicated project coordinator who will provide oversight and guidance, as well as a dedicated Trustee of the FCDT.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
