Exciting opportunity at Remade!

Interim Business Manager Vacancy Oct 2014

Remade in Edinburgh is a multi-award winning social enterprise that teaches repair skills in computer repair and textiles and mending and is looking to expand into furniture repair. We campaign for goods to be built to last, working with policy makers and manufacturers to end a disposable culture.

From our beginnings in 2011 as a community group with £60, we now have a shop in central Edinburgh and four part-time members of staff. We offer computer repair appointments, sell refurbished computers, and a programme of repair workshops as well as consultancy in repair and reuse.
