We warmly welcome Mark Kennedy into post as Operations Manager. Mark previously worked at Cyrenians.

“During my seven years at Cyrenians I had a variety of roles. I began as an outreach worker in the Homeless Prevention Service, eventually becoming a senior in this Service. I was then appointed Service Manager of Cyrenians Communities, which are two supported housing projects for young people, one in Edinburgh and the other on a farm in West Lothian. My final post at Cyrenians was as Manager of Advice and Support Services. I was aware of Circle through my outreach work, particularly in North Edinburgh, and am delighted to get the opportunity to join the organisation.”

Darren Pike joins Circle as our Income Generation Manager. Darren has previously been a fundraiser with Garvald Edinburgh, Foundation Scotland and St Columba’s Hospice. He’s really excited about raising Circle’s profile, securing our projects (and staff) the funding they need to continue their vital work and together building better futures for the children we support. If anyone would like to join Darren on a walk, run, bungee jump, bag-pack or similarly fun (???) fundraising adventure please get in touch.
