Welcome to Coopers Edge


Looking for an exciting opportunity? Looking to be challenged? Looking for a role where building sustainable relationships is key to success? A place where you could not only support the positive impact on individuals lives but a whole community?

If you’ve got passion, enthusiasm and drive, along with a real sense of business and social enterprise then…

…Look no further….you may be looking at your future…

The @ The Edge Community Centre is a rapidly expanding Community Centre situated in the heart of the Coopers Edge Development. Opened in November 2015, the Trustees are seeking a highly motivated, business-minded individual to not only to increase the usage of the centre to ensure its sustainability into the future but also a community spirited one whose desire to see people flourish in their lives will drive them to go above and beyond to make the project a success.

To support the aims of Coopers Edge Trust we are seeking an experienced MANAGER who is able to fully support the vision of our trustees in managing the @ The Edge Community Centre. Are you:

  • an experienced manager with a proven track record of being highly organised and meeting demanding deadlines;
  • able to work confidently and flexibly, using own initiative without being scared to get your hands dirty;
  • hardworking, calm, reliable and resilient and willing to give anything a go with a smile on your face;
  • able to establish productive working relationships with staff, volunteers, local residents and the wider community;
  • experienced in using a range of software packages confidently;
  • able to use a range of social media confidently and effectively?

If so then why not apply!

The role includes the line management of our café manager and is likely to grow to include management of other staff. Initially the position is advertised as 37 hours per week – this reflects the need to carry out tasks that may be better suited to others (site staff for instance) but gives the Manager the flexibility and capacity to not only carry out these tasks but build the role and its impact to a long term sustainable position. Initially a 12 month fixed term contract but this will be reviewed in line with the growth and sustainability of the community centre.

The working pattern will be flexible in line with the requirements of the business.

About The Coopers Edge Trust

The Coopers Edge Trust was formed in 2009 initially in response to a consultation on whether a primary school was needed in Coopers Edge.

In partnership with the Robinswood Trust the group was successfully awarded the opportunity to establish  the school in 2010.

The group continues to work with the school, however the remit grew wider in response to residents needs, the challenges of a new estate, six different councils being involved and builders with s106 commitments to maintain. We have helped coordinate residents feedback on this issues, run community surveys and facilitated volunteering days and run community trips and fetes.

As the estate had grown we have also provided seed funding for new groups including the WI, Coopers Edge FC and Coopers Edge Cricket Club.

In 2015 we were appointed by Stroud District Council to run @theedge, Coopers Edge Community Centre which is run on a not for profit basis to provide as much community access as possible.

"...@The Edge Community Centre is an exciting new space at the heart of Coopers Edge..."
