penwithIt is not every day that paid jobs in Transition turn up, but today is one of those days.  Transition Penwith is looking for a Project Officer, with the closing date for applications being 11th May 2009.  Full details below:

Transition Penwith Project Officer: 10 hours per week

Salary: £20,527 p.a. pro rata

An understanding of the impact of climate change and fossil fuel depletion and support of Transition Penwith’s aims is essential.
