The role of Communications and Campaigns Officer is brand new for us, so we are really excited about it.

This is a really exciting time for communications and campaigning at CRNS.

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 180 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.

We recently announced funding from the Scottish Government and Zero Waste Scotland to set up a new Sharing Library and Repair Café Network. This is an exciting project which has the ambitious goals to grow fourfold the number of Sharing Libraries and Repair Cafés in Scotland over the next three years.

If you are the successful candidate, you will be responsible for setting up this new network from scratch and running it. Working with experts within the sector, you would prepare a wide variety of deliverables agreed with our funders including a new website, marketing materials, sharing library and repair café set-up guides, training courses, mentoring and exchange visit programmes and more. 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. Currently 15 months of funding is secured so this contract is initially for this period. However, the expectation is that subject to strong performance by the network a further two years of funding will be approved after which we hope the network can become self-sustaining.

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.
