Background info

The Edinburgh Remakery is a social enterprise and charity. Our mission is to create a zero waste society by diverting reusable resources away from landfill, and sharing valuable repair and reuse skills with the people in our community

We have a shop premises at Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre where we specialise in refurbishing donated Tech equipment and selling it at affordable prices in store and through our on-line shop, running repair workshops and selling refurbished furniture. We provide quality volunteering & work experience  placements.

As of January 2022 we will operate from our new premises at Ocean Terminal.  The shop will offer a welcoming community space where people can come and learn, be inspired, socialise and engage with repair and reuse practices and learning. 


Scope of Role

The main focus of this role will be to develop and coordinate our workshops activity and the volunteer programme.  We have created a workshop zone within our store and this will provide exciting and engaging workshops around repair and reuse – from textile repair skills to electronics workshops tailored for a wide audience from community groups right through to corporate team building workshops.

Developing our workshops 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 provide income generation as part of our social enterprise objectives. It will be essential to steer the workshops 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 innovation and new, relevant business ideas.
