Whilst I have been with Haldane for 5 months recent difficulties within the company is likely to lead to staff redundancies. Given my short period of employment I am concerned that I may become unemployed and I am therefore looking for alternative employment.
Footpath Skills Trainee
Cairngorms Outdoor Access Trust
April 2011 - December 2012
Aviemore Office, Dell Farm of Rothiemurchus, AVIEMORE,
I gained the "SVQ Environmental Conservation Level 2" in June 2012 following a fixed 8 month period with the COAT as a footpath Skills Trainee.
Whilst employed with COAT I was part of an 8 man team responsible for the building of Upland and Lowland paths extending from 50m to 4km in length within the Cairngorms National Park.

Unfortunately funding for COAT was limited and the contract ended on the 16th December and whilst I now find myself unemployed, I do however try to keep occupied and occasionally do some voluntary work on a local farm driving a tractor and helping out around the farm.

The group operate a vegetable garden at Sugar Acre in Falkland and also own a large area of gifted land at KILLIN called the "Colin...
