An exciting opportunity to be part of an innovative city-wide community resilience programme for people aged 60+, working in partnership with Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership and Queen Margaret University
About the role
You will lead and support a team of four Community Resilience Workers. You will manage a service delivering one to one person-centred key work with the focus on enabling people aged 60+ to remain independent at home and in their community.

You will be an experienced manager and confident decision-maker. You will be a strong advocate for relationship-based approaches and be able to both guide best practice and demonstrate the impact of our way of working to a range of stakeholders. You will have experience using learning to shape practice and of working with people aged 60+ in health and social care settings, with a good understanding of the range of challenges they may face.
How we will support you
We will encourage you to be creative and innovative in your approach.
You will be part of a small team, led by a supportive senior manager. You’ll also have access to wider Cyrenians’ support, including our learning and development programme, and staff wellbeing services.
At Cyrenians we tackle the causes and consequences of homelessness. We understand that there are many routes into homelessness, and that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to supporting people towards more positive and stable futures. That’s why all our work is values-led and relationships-based.
· Compassion: We believe that everyone should have the chance to change, no matter how long that might take.
· Respect: We believe in tolerance, acceptance, valuing diversity and treating each other as equals.
· Integrity: We are committed to the highest quality of work, grounded in honesty, generosity, sincerity and professionalism.
· Innovation: We are willing to take risks, challenge convention and be creative in our search for new ways of working, in particular by taking account of the environmental impact of our decisions.
