SURF is seeking a part-time Facilitator to support its Alliance for Action programme site of Dunoon.

Dunoon is one of five SURF Alliance for Action programme sites

The successful applicant will be responsible for helping to build on local demand for complementary economic, physical and social improvements in the town, following a successful SURF-managed 2017 ‘Think Dunoon’ Community Charrette.

‘Think Dunoon’ highlighted broad consensus on Dunoon’s strengths, such as its strategic location, its rich history, and its resourceful and lively community, and challenges, such as the need to enhance town centre facilities, address vacant and derelict sites and buildings, and attract and retain visitors, entrepreneurs and young people.

With these opportunities and challenges in mind, the Charrette outcomes report identified a number of priority projects under four themes – community, local economy, tourism, and place – which SURF, the Dunoon Area Alliance community group, and other partners, including Argyll & Bute Council and Highlands & Islands Enterprise, are supportive of.

The primary role of the local facilitator will be to assist in the development and delivery of these projects, including by providing all reasonable support to local stakeholders for project planning, resource and process development, implementation and evolution.

SURF is confident that this presents an exciting and rewarding opportunity to contribute positively to the future of one of the west of Scotland’s most significant coastal towns.
