Opportunities

River Cafe Tender

We’re looking for a catering provider that can embrace Timespan’s values and provide a cafe offer for our River Cafe, which is at the heart of Timespan’s organisation. River Cafe is in a beautiful spot in the Scottish Highlands overlooking the River Helmsdale and Timespan’s herb garden, and it’s central to Timespan’s organisational aims – we use food as a means of supporting local producers and creating community. We believe that everyone deserves access to fresh, sustainable and ethically sourced food and our aim is to work with community partners and producers to develop a local food web for the village. 

The deadline for expressions of interest is January 31st 2020. Get in touch with sadie@timespan.org.uk with any questions.

Internships

Timespan is proud to offer a diverse portfolio of paid internships. These are structured work-based learning opportunities to support people from all backgrounds to work in the arts sector.

Volunteer

Volunteers make a significant contribution to the work of Timespan, and we are committed to creating meaningful and productive roles for volunteers that will enable them to develop skills, knowledge and experience.

We currently have volunteer programmes in the following categories:

Gardening

We’re looking to expand our lovely herb garden to include a modest kitchen garden of salads and veg. If you’ve got green fingers and keen to learn from hardened gardeners about successfully growing herbs and veg in a difficult northern environment, get in touch.

Archive & Collection

We’re committed to fully digitising our archive and collections and are looking for people who would like to learn cataloguing, archiving and object preservation skills.

Events

Timespan is blessed by our committed and hard-working Friends of Timespan who organise a range of fun and joyous events including ceilidhs, fashion shows, Burns Night suppers and quizzes. If you’ve got an idea for village events and would like to join Friends of Timespan, please get in touch.
