Bristol Green Capital Partnership aims to deliver its programme in a way that recognises the importance of an inclusive society, creating opportunities and access for all individuals. We are committed to promoting equality, valuing diversity, ensuring accessibility, and respecting human rights.
We strive to ensure that marginalised groups are represented and that our organisation reflects the diversity of the city in which we operate (considering all protected characteristics). We encourage and welcome applications from suitably skilled candidates from all backgrounds.
Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC is the community interest company that supports Bristol's environmental sustainability network of 1,000+ member organisations. Its mission is to support Partnership members and promote environmental sustainability throughout Bristol and the West of England, providing a leadership voice and enabling collaboration and collective action across sectors towards our shared vision.
The Interim Operations & Project Manager will be joining Bristol Green Capital Partnership at an exciting time, helping to boost citywide efforts in response to the climate and ecological emergencies. As a 9-month maternity cover role, they will be responsible for overseeing the delivery of the Black & Green Ambassadors programme during this time and helping to manage the organisation's day-to-day operations and programme delivery as part of a small, dynamic and energetic team.
Working closely with the Chief Operating Officer, this person will support the smooth running of the organisation's finance, operations and HR processes. In addition, they will undertake line management responsibilities and work closely with the broader team to support the Partnership's core programme of activities, including regular Green Mingles and Partnership Gatherings and business planning, development, and income generation activities.
One of their main areas of work will be project managing the delivery of the Black & Green Ambassadors programme, which will be in the second year of its three-year programme, working in close collaboration with project partner Ujima Radio CIC. This will involve planning and managing the programme to ensure that it is delivering its objectives within budget and agreed timeframes and reporting to grant funders and sponsors. They will also work closely with the Chief Operating Officer and key partners at Ujima Radio to develop the programme and maximise funding and sponsorship opportunities.
As a role that covers both day-to-day operational responsibilities and project management, this will suit someone with strong time management skills and the ability to manage competing priorities – being able to provide consistent and ongoing support to ensure the smooth internal operations of the community interest company whilst managing a varied project workload and range of development opportunities presented by the Black & Green Ambassadors programme.
Candidates should be able to demonstrate project management and budget management experience, the confidence to work with a broad range of stakeholders at different levels, the ability to problem-solve with a proactive and adaptable approach, and a passion for ensuring that collaboration and partnership working remains at the heart of project delivery.
Business Planning & Development
Maternity cover is required for an existing full-time post (35 hrs p/w). However, we wish to be as flexible as possible, and so are open to alternative arrangements and would consider a job-sharing arrangement for two-part time posts if candidates have the right level of skills and experience and together these are sufficient to cover the maternity cover role requirements. We would also consider secondment(s).
Place of work: We are in the process of transitioning to a part-time, flexible central Bristol co-working office location. The role will combine home-based, and office-based working and the successful candidate must be willing to work from both when required.
Flexible working: Company staff benefit from a flexible approach to working, but there is no formal flexitime system. Excess hours may be taken in lieu by agreement with your line manager. We promote flexible working patterns wherever required to maximise opportunities for people with caring responsibilities.
Work permits: We are unable to offer sponsorship for work permits or visa applications. Only applicants with the right to work in the UK will be considered. Evidence of this will need to be provided during the recruitment process.
