Part time - equivalent of 18.25 hours per week (to be worked over a 4-week pattern)
The Walled Garden is around a half acre of ground within Dollar Park, Falkirk.
Falkirk Criminal Justice renovated the walled garden after it fell into disrepair and Cyrenians assumed responsibility for the day to day management of the garden in August 2015.

We are looking for a skilled and dynamic individual with a “can do” attitude and a genuine interest in gardens and working outdoors. Knowledge of the criminal justice system is desirable and excellent interpersonal skills will enable you to motivate and inspire participants to get the most out of the opportunities that the garden presents.
