The Circle, a multi-award winning ‘More Than Profit’ social enterprise, operating in Dundee and Glasgow, was founded to create, and contribute to, a vibrant and sustainable community. The Circle supports businesses to make a difference to communities across Scotland, the UK, and globally by providing affordable consultancy, training and workspaces.
The Circle is a hub for charities, social enterprises, commercial organisations, creatives, community groups, individuals, and socially aware businesses. We provide affordable offices and community spaces, as well as meeting and event spaces.
In addition to our property services, we offer consultancy and business support to those starting and growing their businesses. We provide advice, support and training in all areas, including accessing funding, developing an entrepreneurial mindset, governance, and strategic planning.
We also run The Circle Academy, an online programme focused on developing skills and knowledge in the following key areas: business model, finance, legal, governance, people, social impact, and sustainability through multiple income streams. The Academy is aimed at all career stages. We encourage a ‘More Than Profit’ mindset and approach to ideas and businesses.
At The Circle, we also provide pathways to the third sector through volunteering, work experience, student placements and internships. We are proud to be a living-wage employer and have implemented the four day work week, giving each member of staff a ‘rest’ day, while maintaining their rate of pay.
By bringing organisations together, we are promoting collaboration and fostering social innovation across the country.
