We work with the people for as long as it takes, building up support and trust to identify what they would like to do and highlight the positive effect it would have on their lives. Our work involves helping to clients to overcome multiple barriers with individualised support ensuring the person is heavily involved in design and core elements to ensure interest and relevance.

The post will be part of a team within the Lifting Neighbourhoods Together team delivering the project across Bingham, Magdalene & The Hays primarily, with additional work in the peripheral community. The projects have been running for a number of years and have a solid foundation on which to develop. The incoming worker will have the support and guidance as well as the freedom to bring a creative approach to the role helping to meet the evolving needs of the people the project engages with. There will be tasks to do that are part of being the wider Lifting Neighbourhoods Together team, such as events, community engagement and sometimes working with people who are not young people as part of collaborating across different specialisms.

Whilst the ESN project has tangible and achievable targets, the emphasis is very much placed on the quality of relationships with the young people. Building trust between worker and client and the wider community are first and foremost to achieve the aims and objectives of the project.

Neighbourhood Manager (Bingham, Magdalene & The Hays)

  • Bingham, Edinburgh
  • Closing 13th December 2021

COMMUNITY RENEWAL is a dynamic and innovative organisation at the cutting-edge of work towards ending persistent poverty in Scotland.

Community Renewal works among deprived communities to develop, deliver and share better approaches to unlocking flourishing lives and flourishing neighbourhoods. These approaches always place people and communities in the lead: listening to them, identifying their strengths, supporting them on their terms, and building their capacity to flourish.

Community Renewal alleviates poverty by engaging and forming trusting relationships with individuals, whole families and whole communities together then supporting them by combining holistic case management (e.g. around income, work, health, wellness) with community development (e.g. forming new community activities/groups). This work is about testing change which can inform policy, be scaled up or replicated to achieve a much greater impact than our direct delivery alone.

COMMUNITY RENEWAL: LIFTING NEIGHBOURHOODS TOGETHER

Community Renewal Trust has been awarded a £2.1m grant from National Lottery Community Foundation to deliver Community Renewal: Lifting Neighbourhoods Together (LNT). All the delivery in our Bingham office, where this role is based, is incorporated into the LNT programme.

The LNT programme is looking at how we can radically change how deprived neighbourhoods are supported. We think much more could be done to focus on community engagement and effective case management (e.g. coaching) that sticks with someone for as long as it takes for them to build the capacity to transform their own life for the better. This is unlike some existing services which seek to dissuade people from attending and provide a short-term fix for them.

We invite applications from committed individuals, who thrive on working with communities.
