Care and Repair Edinburgh is an independent charity offering a range of practical services to help older people and those living with disabilities in Edinburgh to repair, improve or adapt their homes so that they can live safely and independently for as long as possible.

We have been serving Edinburgh’s older and disabled residents since 1985 and complete over 5,000 jobs every year in homes across the city. Our services include minor and major home adaptations to improve accessibility, comfort and energy efficiency as well as a handyperson service that uses volunteers to complete DIY services and help with technology in the home.

Care and Repair Edinburgh is part of Age Scotland, the national charity for older people.

We are looking for a Senior Administrator to support the provision of a high quality administrative function to the business in order to ensure effective and efficient service delivery; and facilitate the recruitment, support, training and administration of volunteers and to enhance the volunteer service delivery of CRE.

The post will be a blend of office based (in Edinburgh) and home based work.

Due to the Covid outbreak in the UK, we have adapted our way of working in an effort to ensure the ongoing delivery of services, while minimising risk to our employees. Depending on guidance from the Scottish Government regarding the lifting of lockdown restrictions, this role may initially be completely home based, incorporating office work and face to face contact when it is safe to do so.
