Move On Wood Recycling is a social enterprise in Edinburgh which collects waste wood, sells quality timber, and provides work experience, volunteering and training opportunities.

We collect, recycle and reuse waste timber from the building industry and other sectors, which reduces landfill use and the production of methane gas. We sell quality timber and undertake carpentry jobs for customers, reducing the demand for new wood.

We also provide work experience and employability training in our workshop to help vulnerable people make progress toward further training or employment.

We are seeking to appoint a Development Worker with proven skills and experience in forming and growing our new social enterprise.
