ACT Argyll - Skills and Contracts Manager Job Opportunity
12/05/2015

A new partnership between Dunbritton Housing Association, West Highland Housing Association and Argyll and the Isles Coast and Countryside Trust has secured the funding support needed to launch ACT Argyll with teams in Helensburgh and Oban.

ACT Argyll will employ local people to deliver environmental contracts for a range of partners whilst offering a progressive structure for training and skills provision for local jobs. This will take care of and enhance our countryside and green spaces and at the same time provide real jobs and training opportunities.

Dunbritton Housing Association were successful in being awarded funding from the Scottish Government’s  People and Communities funding stream, which was then matched by contributions from Argyll and Bute Council, Forestry Commission Scotland , Scottish Natural Heritage, West Highland Housing Association, Skills Development Scotland and Argyll and the Isles Coast and Countryside Trust (ACT).

Sephton MacQuire, Convenor of Dunbritton Housing Association said “We have a proud record of creating jobs and apprenticeship opportunities throughout Argyll and Bute. Dunbritton are delighted to be part of a new partnership with the recently formed ACT which will result in more valuable jobs being created for local people. We would like to thank the Scottish Government for their support through the People and Communities Fund and look forward to working with all our partners to ensure that ACT is a great success.’

Argyll and the Isles Coast and Countryside Trust was launched in April 2014, and this project is a major step forward with its objectives to provide skills and training opportunities whilst delivering environmentally focussed projects. 

Ian Hepburn, ACT Chairman said Working with partners across the area to establish ACT Argyll is one of a number of exciting projects which ACT has been developing.  It’s been a great first year for our charity and we are looking forward to moving our operations to the next level.”

ACT Argyll Projects will be established as a new limited company wholly owned by ACT charity.

The recruitment process for a Skills and Contracts Manager to lead the project has already begun, with full details and application form on the act website www.act.now.org.uk   Opportunities for Team Chargehands, and an Administrator will be advertised in the near future, and each team will offer 12 month Trainee positions and 6 month Environmental Assistant placements.
