Are you passionate about promoting inclusion to the Arts, and understand the benefits of greenspace for wellbeing and recovery? Are you creative in your working approach?

If so, this new role working with people and in partnership with others may be the perfect opportunity for you.

About the role

You will lead the delivery and implementation of arts-based activities and approaches in greenspaces designed to support wellbeing and recovery, as well as coordinating the development of greenspaces to support staff wellbeing across Edinburgh.

Partnership working will be central to this role, and you will work alongside other Cyrenians colleagues, 3rd sector, statutory partners and service users to shape the vision for this project.

About You

You will be an outgoing individual with excellent organisational skills and with a creative and innovative approach. Experience of working in the arts and in community-accessed greenspaces is essential.

You will be committed to promoting inclusion, and will have experience of working with people with a broad range of life experiences.

How we’ll support you

You’ll be working independently with a supportive manager and a range of internal and external colleagues and partnerships. You will 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 creative in our search for new ways of working, in particular by taking account of the environmental impact of our decisions.
