We are an award winning, community-led organisation in South East Edinburgh whose aim is to enable people to learn, work and grow together to create a flourishing community and place.
This is a pivotal role, with overall responsibility for the development, operations and sustainability of Bridgend Farmhouse’s community facing activities, volunteering and external partnerships. Bridgend Farmhouse is relatively young as a fully constituted and staffed organisation, but has its origins in community development activities dating back over ten years. We are looking for someone to lead the organisation in the next crucial stage of its development as we seek to diversify our sources of funding and increase the impact we achieve in our Area of Benefit. We need a highly organised, resilient self-starter for this challenging but very rewarding role.
To apply it is essential that you have a recognised qualification in community education or community development. You will have a strong track record of operational and project management in a comparable setting, and be competent and confident in managing budgets and financial performance. You will have excellent people management skills and a record of creating strong working partnerships with organisations, community groups and volunteers. Experience of working to a board of voluntary directors and of monitoring, evaluating and reporting on outcomes is also essential.
