Bridgend Farmhouse

Bridgend Farmhouse, 41 Old Dalkeith Road, Edinburgh EH16 4TE

Hours: Full-time (35 hours)
Salary: £30,000
Type of Contract: Permanent

Bridgend Farmhouse is an award winning, community-owned and led organisation in South East Edinburgh whose aim is to enable people to learn, work and grow together to create a flourishing community and place.


This is a pivotal role, with overall responsibility for the development, operations and sustainability of Bridgend Farmhouse’s community facing activities, volunteering and external partnerships. We were one of first urban asset transfers in Scotland in 2015, and opened as a community hub in 2018, when our first staff joined us. So, Bridgend Farmhouse is relatively young as a staffed organisation, but has its origins in community development activities dating back over eleven years. The challenge for this role is to increase the profile and reposition Bridgend Farmhouse, a Community Benefit Society with Charitable status which has survived the negative impacts of COVID-19, whilst providing a range of vital services during the pandemic, and is beginning to emerge from lockdown. We have also just completed a large piece of community action research with other 400 households and detailed governance review with over 45 members, staff, trustees and volunteers.


The successful candidate would support the Board of Directors/Trustees to implement recently agreed structural changes, strengthen its governance and be responsible for the day-to-day organisation of a vibrant community hub which serves South East Edinburgh.  We need a highly organised, resilient self-starter for this challenging but very rewarding role.


This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced manager who has an understanding of working with a community-led organisation. You will have a strong track record of operational and project management in a comparable setting, and be competent and confident in managing budgets and financial performance. You will have excellent people management skills and a record of creating strong working partnerships with organisations, community groups and volunteers.  Experience of working to a Board of voluntary directors and of monitoring, evaluating and reporting on outcomes is also essential.

Closing date for applications is 12.00 pm (noon), Monday 2nd August.
Shortlisted candidates will be informed by Monday 9th August. Interviews will be held on the 19th or 20th August.
