Circular Communities Scotland (previously CRNS) are delighted to be launching this exciting project in partnership with Cycling Scotland. Put simply we want to grow bike reuse across Scotland and therefore affordable access to bikes, significantly over the next three years. This role will be at the heart of driving that transformation.

Circular Communities Scotland is a membership network with a vision for a thriving circular economy in Scotland with local communities benefiting from the social, environmental, and economic outcomes. With a growing membership of over 200 charities and social enterprises we are always looking for new ways to support the circular community’s sector and see our vision become a reality.

Following on from a recent research project commissioned by Cycling Scotland several actions have been identified that would progress greater bike reuse in Scotland. Circular Communities Scotland will work with partners to progress these actions by hosting this role. This is an exciting project which involves working with a wide range of senior stakeholders including Cycling Scotland and Scottish Government as well as the bike reuse sector itself.

If you are the successful candidate, you will be responsible for setting up this project from scratch and running it. You would prepare a wide variety of deliverables, manage the project, and build relationships with key stakeholders within and beyond the sector. This is a real opportunity to increase bike reuse in Scotland, improve affordable access to bikes and combat climate and social injustice.

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. This initial project is planned to run for three years (subject to funding continuing) albeit we would also hope to deliver long-term sustainability beyond this.

We are looking for a strong self-starter with a proven track record of delivery so you can hit the ground running. You need to be a strong communicator, self-organised and able to manage a complex range of deliverables over a fairly short period of time. You need to be passionate about sustainability in general and demonstrate awareness of the circular economy and the Active Travel Framework.
