This is a new role in a really impactful, empowering and supportive values-led environment. This is not a typical business development role but rather an exciting opportunity to have a more strategic approach by starting with learning, policy and research rather than chasing funding opportunities.
There is specific work to share the approach and impact of our £2m 5-year Lifting Neighbourhoods Together approach with a wider audience in the public and third sectors.
This is a diverse role in a diverse organisation. Community Renewal Trust has 45 staff and a wide array of work in neighbourhoods and social enterprises. This includes: two neighbourhood teams delivering a whole-person, whole-neighbourhood approach; two food pantries; a team of Roma staff supporting Scotland’s Roma with advice and community development; a consultancy social enterprise; and Caledonia Funeral Aid.
Our focus is on ending poverty for households and whole-neighbourhoods, not just tacking poverty or mitigating poverty; our learning about this from both successes and failures is extremely relevant and needs to be shared widely.
Because this is a new role we are open to suggestions and negotiating options for this post.
