Building and Hires Lead

  • Part time
  • £27,000 pro-rata
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 30th April 2023

  • Advertised from 13th April 2023
  • 30 hours per week (4 days). Fixed term: until 31 March 2024


This is a unique opportunity to support and develop the Kinning Park Complex (KPC). In 2018, KPC was constituted as a Scottish Charitable (SCIO) and secured funding to purchase and renovate our well-loved building. Following an extensive renovation programme in 2022, KPC is ready for a period of recovery and transition as we utilise the space in ways which will deliver a positive impact for our community.

The KPC Board is looking for a creative, collaborative, experienced person to oversee the safe running of the building as a meeting and events space.

KPC is a well-established and well-loved community space with a large hall, a number of small office and event spaces, potential hot desking spaces, a kitchen, cafe, and a community garden. The space is a vital community asset with a range of community-based projects and activities including community meals, classes, and events.

We are looking for a Building and Hires Lead to keep KPC open and operational as an events and meeting space in the short term, whilst developing a future KPC that is based on a strong and sustainable operational model. A key aim for the organisation through this transition is to understand how to effectively achieve our charitable aims and best serve the local community by acting as a facilitator to partner service providers, rather than provide services directly.

The post holder will work primarily alongside a Community and Outreach Lead and a Finance Lead, overseen by an Interim Manager and supported by caretaking cover.
