CHURCH OF SCOTLAND – COUNCIL OF ASSEMBLY
GAELIC DEVELOPMENT OFFICER
12 MONTH CONSULTANCY
(to commence May 2019)
On behalf of the Church of Scotland Council of Assembly, the Gaelic Group is looking to appoint an individual with the necessary skills and expertise to help progress the development and promotion of Gaelic within the religious life of Scotland and the Church of Scotland. The Gaelic Development Officer will provide a dedicated resource over the next year to take forward key elements of work, but will also liaise with the Gaelic Group to bring forward a more detailed, prioritised and fully costed plan for the period 2020-2023, including the identification of resources to take this work forward.
The successful candidate will be sufficiently self-motivated to carry out the tasks independently and will need to be fluent and literate in Gaelic, have a good understanding of Gaelic culture and a sound knowledge of theological and Biblical texts.
