Responsible to: Deputy Chief Executive

Capital City Partnership is developing a new project which will build and expand on the already established Maximise! service in Edinburgh, ensuring that the offer is extended to those in BAME communities affected by poverty and disadvantage.

We aim to develop a change project that addresses poverty and disadvantage within BAME communities in Edinburgh and brings about significant and measurable improvements led by these communities. We also want to produce evidence-based learning and a change management toolkit that can be replicated and expanded across our local and regional influence. Community involvement will be at the heart of this project and individuals’ voices and experiences will shape how it develops. The project will acknowledge that it is people who are experiencing disadvantage in our communities who have the power to identify those problems and develop solutions.

We are therefore seeking someone for this new post who is empathetic to the needs of this community and who can demonstrate the leadership and team management skills to empower effective and measurable change.

Working with our delivery partners (Children 1st and CHAI) we will use a holistic whole family support model to deliver transformational change for BAME families in Edinburgh, providing wraparound support that addresses family wellbeing needs, money worries and employability support simultaneously, to ensure each family has the capacity to move out of poverty, and achieve their goals and aspirations.

Secondments will be considered.
