Job opportunity – Project Coordinator

We are looking for a new team member to join us as a Project Coordinator for our new service, The Circle Mobility!

At The Circle, we look for people who want to make an impact in their day-to-day work. We’re a social enterprise focused on delivering great value for our customers in a way that is both impactful and financially sustainable. We’re a 4-day week employer and are keen to welcome someone into the business who is as motivated and enthusiastic as the rest of our fantastic team.

You’ll work as part of our Dundee Team. We’ve recently launched The Circle Mobility which will deliver services formerly delivered by Shopmobility. The service primarily consists of safely renting mobility aids such as wheelchairs and motorised scooters to people in need of them. We’re looking for a motivated Project Coordinator to drive the initiative forward. The Circle aims to expand this service and develop partnerships across the city.
