Community Resources Network Scotland (CRNS) is Scotland’s national reuse, repair, and recycling charity. At CRNS we have a vision to see a circular economy in Scotland where resources are not wasted, but instead reused, repaired, and recycled.

We are a network organisation, representing and supporting over 170 charities and social enterprises who help us work towards making our vision a reality. Our membership is always growing, and ranges from bike projects to repair cafes, tool libraries to food banks, charity shops to environmental education charities. What unites them is delivering the social and environmental benefits which flow from a more circular economy.

Part of the important work we do to support a circular economy is our Reuse Consortium. A self-sustaining business model, the consortium is made up of CRNS members who provide reuse furniture and white goods to local authorities across Scotland through a Scotland Excel Framework Agreement. CRNS is the lead partner in this Consortium.

The Reuse Consortium Coordinator is responsible for managing, developing, and promoting the Reuse Consortium across Scotland. As the CRNS staff member with specific focus on the consortium, it’s continued success will rely on your organisation, networking, relationship building, communication skills and desire to generate buzz and business for our consortium members. This is a great opportunity to bring your own ideas and enthusiasm to an established reuse business that supports people and the planet.

We are also determined to get the right person to join our strong team which is why we are open to exploring different options regarding place of work from office based to remote working. Regarding hours of work we are most likely to recruit at the level of 4 days per week but would like you to state your preference or requirements in your application.

Perhaps you have experience with Local Authorities and Housing Associations across Scotland and are attracted by our social and environmental purpose. Or maybe you are working in a project coordinator role in the third sector and are looking for a fresh challenge. Either way you should be a strong team-player, proactive self-starter, have excellent communication skills and be committed to high standards of delivery.

This is a really exciting time to join CRNS. We are about to rebrand and rename ourselves which will help us to position the organisation and the Consortium for future growth.
