Do you have a passion for creating positive living environments?

If so, this new, varied and rewarding Places and Projects Coordinator role could be yours!

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.

From tenements in Edinburgh to our farm in West Lothian, our communities are at the heart of what we do; directly supporting individuals experiencing homelessness.

About the role

As Places and Projects Coordinator you’ll work closely with our Communities and Compliance teams to ensure our residential sites provide accessible, comfortable, home environments – inside and out – which live our values and meet all regulations and standards.

You’ll be involved in all aspects of building maintenance, including risk management, coordinating utilities and purchasing amenities. You’ll use your organisational and communication skills to liaise directly with contractors, landlords and service providers to improve our properties, and resolve any challenges that naturally arise at such diverse sites.

You’ll also find opportunities to help our wider teams achieve their property goals, such as finding new spaces or improving our existing places.

About you

You’ll be a natural organiser with a genuine interest in property who understands the difference a positive living environment can make. You’ll have an uncanny knack for problem-solving and thrive on creating and maintaining high standards, including around compliance, health and safety.

You’ll bring experience of working with third parties like landlords and suppliers, and achieving best value when doing so. You will be strong on compliance around your area of expertise.

How we’ll support you

We’ll encourage you to be creative and innovative, and to take a pragmatic approach to your work.

You’ll have enthusiastic, knowledgeable colleagues, and a supportive and experienced manager. You’ll also have access to wider Cyrenians support, including our learning and development programme, and staff wellbeing services.

Our values

Our values drive everything that we do, and are at the heart of our communities. We are looking for someone whose values align with our own:

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