Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn (UOG) aims to maximise the economic and social value of Gaelic language and heritage to the estate and is currently undertaking various projects and initiatives to stimulate economic and social opportunities.

UOG is seeking to recruit a self-motivated individual to engage with the community of the Galson Estate to proactively promote, support learning of, and use Gaelic to deliver against recognised priorities e.g. tourism, health and wellbeing, childcare and thereby place importance on the Gaelic language as a socio-economic driver.

UOG delivers a Community Investment Programme and it is expected the post-holder would support organisations to seek opportunities to use the language to support their growth and development, adding value to their offering.

The successful applicant will have excellent verbal and written communication skills with fluency in Gaelic, both verbal and written. Experience of heritage related projects and community-led development would be advantageous. The ability to work on your own initiative is essential.
