We’re looking for an experienced and enthusiastic collaborator to be responsible for scouting and applying for Wellbeing grants opportunities and ensuring the funding we award generates the greatest possible impact for our beneficiaries.

  • A high degree of creativity and a collaborative style to be able to pro-actively manage a diverse workload on your own initiative.

What difference will you make?

The intention of our centre is to create an Alchemy to awaken people to a new, deeper, more connected, higher, more universal awareness and personal growth. The ‘Art of turning lead into gold according to the ancient philosophical tradition is what inspires us deeply, because we believe the time has come to take the simple artistic or wellbeing workshop to the next level of depth.

We believe that Edinburgh's rich and varied cultural identity can and should be reflected through the support of the wellbeing journey of people, increasing understanding and enhancing lives. We want people from all walks of life to contribute to our work and share their experience, expertise and passion.
