We have applied for funding to undertake regional surveys highlighting circular economy opportunities on behalf of a consortium consisting of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, Edinburgh Council, Perthshire Chamber of Commerce, Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce, Stirling Council and Perth & Kinross Council.

The output from the project will be one regional route map for Edinburgh region, Perthshire region and Stirling region. The project duration is for an initial 9 month period. The funding application included a Project Manager to support the consortium to deliver the project.

This is an exciting role and an appropriate attractive salary will be paid depending on experience.

Initially this role will be for 9 month fixed term, however funding is available for stage two of the project which potentially provides an additional year.

This role will be based in Edinburgh, however as travel to Perthshire and Stirlingshire will happen on a regular basis, a driving licence and access to a car are essential.
