Come and join the team at Cyrenians Golden Years, and be part of an exciting new chapter on our journey supporting older people across Edinburgh.

About Golden Years

Golden Years aims to combat loneliness and isolation for people aged 60 plus living in Edinburgh. We use a mixture of keywork and trained volunteers to offer support in a holistic way, helping people break down the barriers which are preventing them from connecting with their community and living their lives.

About the Role

You’ll be:

  • The first point of contact for those reaching out to Golden Years, responding to clients, volunteers and referrers.
  • Learning of our clients’ needs, interests, the challenges they face, and what matters most to them.
  • Supporting the team fully with all admin for the service.
  • Managing referrals and enquiries

About you

  • You will be a people-person who develops relationships that are person centred. You’ll be a good listener and passionate about the rights of older people.
  • You’ll be solution focussed, and enjoy developing and implementing new ideas.
  • You’ll also be highly organised, methodical and conscientious.
  • You’ll be proficient in the use of Word, Excel and Outlook, and have experience of using database systems.

How we’ll support you

This role will be fully supported by the Golden Years Manager and team. You will be given full training on all aspects of your role. You’ll also have access to wider Cyrenians support, including our learning and development programme, and staff wellbeing services.

About us

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.

Our values

  • 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 very creative in our search for new ways of working, in particular by taking account of the environmental impact of our decisions.
