Remade in Edinburgh is a social enterprise which teaches repair skills in textiles, technology and furniture, and campaigns for zero waste.
We work in partnership to promote repair and want to see a future where everyone has skills to fix household items and where things are built to last.
We currently run workshops at our base in Guthrie Street, carry out commissioned events for other organisations, and take donations of computers, which we refurbish and sell to help fund our community workshops, free repair surgery and campaigns.
This role is a strategic and operational one which will help us design and scale up our operations; expanding our products and services.
This year we are opening a new centre, the Edinburgh Remakery, which will be a one stop shop for reuse and repair, based in central Edinburgh or Leith. The centre, for which Remade is the lead partner, will be delivered in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, and will provide a range of products and services for individuals and groups.
A large part of this role will be the development of the Remakery, whilst continuing to plan and deliver overall Remade operations. A shop manager at the Remakery will run the day to day sales, manage sales staff, and be accountable to the Business Manager.
Developing the Remakery will help us increase our offering to new audiences as well as our existing supporters, engaging with the community in the process. It also aims to create a successful business model which can be replicated in other places.
It will be essential to steer this project towards profitability, building on an established business model. A detailed business plan is in place, and the role will demand an ability to put this into action whilst allowing room for relevant new business ideas.
We are looking for someone who is creative, forward thinking, entrepreneurial, and who has excellent judgement. You will be able to translate your own and others’ ideas into operational plans, analyse commercial strategies, develop business partnerships and motivate, recruit and manage a committed team.
This challenging and rewarding role requires proven success in a business or social enterprise context.
