4 New PEDAL Project workers!

PEDAL -> Portobello Transition Town has recruited 4 work­ers to run a new pro­ject aim­ing to reduce the col­lect­ive car­bon foot­print of Portobello and to devel­op loc­al resources to meet the needs of our com­munity.

Project Manager:
We have employed an exper­i­enced man­ager to man­age our pro­jects and fin­ances, fund raise, com­mu­nic­ate our vis­ion, and devel­op our Transition response to Climate Change and Peak Oil.

Two Food Workers:
One Energy Worker:

We have employed 3 devel­op­ment work­ers: two spe­cial­ising in food and one in energy. In devel­op­ing their par­tic­u­lar area of work, they will be organ­ising a range of events, pro­du­cing pub­li­city mater­i­als and — we hope — work­ing with you to gal­van­ise a high level of com­munity involve­ment, meet­ing the chal­lenges of Climate Change and Peak Oil through facil­it­at­ing mean­ing­ful social change.

These posts cur­rently run until the end of March 2011.

    No prob­lem.

    I fully sup­port the work of the organ­isaton and wish you lot all the best.

    I was going to become a mem­ber ages ago but I refuse to use cheques! Greener Leith I see oper­ate an online pay­ment meth­od sim­il­ar to Paypal which offers a very quick and simple way to pay ones mem­ber­ship fee.

    Keep up the good work !

  3. Agree that’s some­thing we should do Michael, and I’ll try to get it done as soon as pos­sible, for both Board mem­bers and staff. At the moment things are pretty busy what with set­ting up the office, sys­tems and pro­jects. Please bear with us.

    It would be great to have some kind of pro­file up here of each of the pro­ject staff.

    There might even be some mer­it in hav­ing someone inform­a­tion on the site about who runs the organ­isa­tion, brief profiles/listing of the board per­haps?
