Role

Community Renewal is a social enterprise and registered charity that works to build community, improve quality of life and alleviate poverty by engaging individuals and families and supporting them to achieve sustainable employment, improved health and to become more involved in their community.

Community Renewal leads a consortium which delivers the Edinburgh Targeted and Integrated Employment Service (ETIES) across Edinburgh, to support stages 4 - 5 of the Scottish Strategic Skills Pipeline. ETIES aims to help people in Edinburgh help themselves towards better working lives in well-paid jobs. Our target group is people unhappy with their low-paid or insecure work (including in “gig economy”) and people who are currently between jobs (i.e. less than 6 months unemployed).

The role of Community Caseworker is to support the team with ensuring that all aspects of the outcomes for the ETIES service are met by supporting people into employment opportunities.

We are particularly keen to hear from people who have experience and/or knowledge in other key areas such as digital skills (basic training), income maximisation, self-employment support, housing advice and employer engagement/partnerships.

Post are funded until 31st March 2022 with possibility of funding being extended
