Introduction to Community Renewal Trust

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

In keeping with our atmosphere of trusting and valuing our staff we offer generous benefits, policies and a flexible approach to working.

Community Renewal Trust 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 Trust 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).

The role will be as part of our Pennywell Neighborhood Team specialising in providing employability support to local people presently facing unemployment and who are actively seeking to return to work. The successful applicant will also support other colleagues with different specialisms working in the same communities. From time-to-time employment support will also be provided to clients across Edinburgh. Due to the client group, evening and/or Saturday work may be required. Outreach work will be required.

We are keen to hear from people with experience and/or knowledge an interest in areas of support such as Digital Skills training / Income Maximization / Self-employment / Housing Advice and Employer Engagement/partnerships
