Full Time
Contract Details: 
Permanent, hybrid
Details of Role: 

The Community and Events Organiser is the driving force behind the Cable’s presence in Bristol. You’ll build and deepen our relationships with members, and Bristol’s many communities and organisations, by organising events and other engagement activities that connect people with our journalism and wider conversations around it.

You’ll organise informative and empowering community meetings in collaboration with community members, democratically engage our membership in driving the Cable forward, and pull off big public events including socials – such as edition launch gigs, member celebration meals, and high profile speaker events.

You’ll coordinate our volunteers, including our board of voluntary directors, and identify new opportunities for volunteers to get involved. We haven’t used volunteers much at the Cable in recent years, so you’ll lead on developing a rewarding volunteering experience and creating policies and procedures that underpin our approach.

More generally you’ll advocate for community-focused approaches within the wider team, developing our strategy around community engagement and events with a focus on how they can be core to the Cable’s mission and future sustainability.

Aside from our main roles, every Cable team member is part of the staff cooperative. We all have a shared stake in the work we do and how we work together, so all team members contribute to key decisions and the overall direction of the Cable, including our priorities, strategy and general operations.
