We are OnFife and as Fife’s largest cultural organisation we specialise in making jaws drop, hearts warm, eyes light up and imaginations run wild. We work with a huge range of partners, artists and creatives and our spaces are some of Fife’s favourite places. An ambitious leadership-oriented charity, we’re built on strong values, and those values make us who we are – Fearless, Inviting, Fair and Exciting.

We offer a local government pension scheme, generous holiday allowance and flexible working opportunities. If you need to travel for work, we can provide pool cars if you’re near head office or pay travel expenses so you are not out of pocket! Along with this, you can also access discounted gym/swim memberships and other employee benefits.

The Role

Following a recent re-structure, we have an exciting opportunity for a Wellbeing Coordinator to join the Cultural Heritage & Wellbeing team. With 35 libraries – 29 managed directly by OnFife’s Operations staff – working alongside our museums, galleries and theatres, there is tremendous scope to make a real difference to local people through service development across Fife.

Working closely with the Community Wellbeing Manager (Libraries), the postholder will create, organise and promote imaginative community wellbeing projects, events, activities and services which support local and national wellbeing and health-literacy initiatives in libraries, heritage, theatres and in communities, in collaboration with other teams across OnFife.

About You

You will have a library qualification and a passion for encouraging, supporting and developing a lifelong library habit in the people of Fife. You will understand the role that libraries can play in the lives of our communities, be able to demonstrate your commitment to and experience of extending the role of libraries beyond books to impact on wellbeing, learning and engagement and be able to apply your expertise to widening out wellbeing across other service areas.

You will be open to new ways of working, collaborating with colleagues working in heritage, archives, theatre and creative development to create exciting programmes with a focus on community-led wellbeing.

You will have meticulous attention to detail, be skilled at monitoring, assessing and evaluating services, ensuring data analysis is used as evidence of best practice in service design. Flexibility is required and there will be travel throughout the region so a driving licence will be beneficial but not necessary.
