Circular Communities Scotland (previously CRNS) is a membership network with a vision for a thriving circular economy in Scotland with local communities benefiting from the social, environmental, and economic outcomes.  With a growing membership of over 250 charities and social enterprises we are always looking for new ways to support the circular community’s sector and see our vision become a reality.

In 2022 we began an exciting project funded by the Scottish Government and Zero Waste Scotland, which has the ambitious goals to grow fourfold the number of Sharing Libraries and Repair Cafés in Scotland over the next three years by establishing the Share and Repair Network.  The project has made excellent progress during the first 15 months, but we are now seeking a strong candidate to provide maternity cover for our coordinator.

If you are the successful candidate, you will be responsible for running this network.  Working with experts within the sector, you will prepare a wide variety of deliverables agreed with our funders including delivering training courses, networking events and an annual in person Gathering, and arranging research projects. This is a real opportunity to significantly increase the amount of sharing and repairing happening in Scotland thereby combatting climate change.

We are also determined to get the right person to join our strong team which is why we are open to exploring different options regarding place of work from office based to remote working.

We are looking for a strong self-starter with a proven track record of delivery so you can hit the ground running.  You need to be a strong communicator, self-organised and able to manage a complex range of deliverables over a fairly short period of time.  You need to be passionate about the circular economy and sustainability in general and some experience of our sector would be positive.
