Govanhill Community Development Trust works for the social, economic and environmental regeneration of Govanhill. We do this through the provision of affordable workspaces locally and a programme of community development activity. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Govanhill Housing Association – a community controlled Registered Social Landlord operating in the Govanhill and Merrylee areas of Glasgow. The Association owns and manages 2,400 homes and provides a Factoring Service to a further 1,200 owners. It has a substantial Development, Major Repairs and Planned Maintenance Programme and delivers wider regeneration activity in partnership with Govanhill Community Development Trust.
This Scottish Government Strengthening Communities Programme funded post is a new role which will sustain Govanhill businesses and organisations that are tenants in Govanhill Community Development Trust’s workspaces. The postholder will support the development of partnerships:
The postholder will work with wider GCDT colleagues to develop packages of support for tenants. They will contribute to the development of a new marketing strategy for GCDT’s commercial property and the production of new marketing materials for our workspaces. A key part of the role will be building good working relationships with tenants to ensure their needs are met and that they have maximised their connections with the local community. This is a new role which can be shaped by a creative and motivated individual. The postholder will work with a diverse array of private enterprises, social enterprises and third sector organisations in one of Scotland’s most dynamic communities.
