This is an exciting opportunity to join the Destination Tweed team and support the further development and delivery of a range of projects. Destination Tweed is an ambitious five-year legacy project built around the idea of the River Tweed Trail, a new long-distance source to sea path which roughly follows the River Tweed from its source high on the hills above Moffat, to where it flows into the North Sea at Berwick-upon-Tweed, with a link at the southern end to the Annandale Way. The project comprises a collection of thirteen projects that will deliver benefit for the environment, community and economy and is built upon a partnership approach to project delivery.

The appointed Senior Project Officer will have an involvement across all projects but specifically will help to develop a community archaeology programme, a community grants scheme, the interpretation package for the Trail and new opportunities for skills development, training and volunteering.
