Transition Jobs #2. Transition in Action Project Manager (readvertised)

This is a fantastic new job opportunity to take Transition Town Totnes (TTT) to the next exciting stage of its development.  As TTT comes to the end of its momentous first 4 years, we are delighted to announce that we have secured 3 years worth of funding for a “Transition in Action” manager to shape the next phase.

TTT has inspired hundreds of volunteers and supporters who are engaged in a wide variety of projects addressing the twin challenges of Peak Oil and climate change and we have recently published one of the world’s first “Energy Descent Action Plans”(EDAP).  We want to appoint someone who can bring together our existing projects, help others come to fruition, find ways of taking forward ideas emerging from the EDAP and help us to establish social enterprises which will help us to be self sustaining.

Opportunities to make a real and direct difference to a whole community are very rare and this is a readvertisement!
