We are a team of volunteers based in and around Aberdeen responsible for Pushing Out the Boat, North-East Scotland’s magazine of new writing and the visual arts.
The Coordinator/Project Manager role involves project management of both team and the tasks needed to produce our regular magazine.
You would be joining us along with our new editor in time to help manage an entire production cycle from the commitment to go ahead through to publication and launch of a new edition.
You would assign and coordinate tasks with team members, compile a schedule of tasks critical to the agreed timetable, and ensure those tasks are completed timeously.
We are a registered charity (Registered No. SC044919) and you would become a member of our managing committee.
While an interest in the arts would be a bonus, experience in coordination and project management are more important to fulfil this role successfully.
We are a friendly group and the work of the editor and coordinator/project manager is supported by a wider team at and between regular committee meetings.
For more details please contact Roger White, PR Manager at email: email@example.com or tel: 07925 822489.

Bikeworks has recently been awarded funding to provide bikes to families that are supported by local charities. As a result we are looking for additional mechanics to join the existing team to help increase the number of bikes that can be produced each week. They collect more than 100 bikes per week and the variable condition of these bikes means that not every bike can be repaired and made safe, but the ones that can exceed their current capacity. The work is varied and interesting and the workshop facility is extensive with all the tools and equipment required.
