About the role
Thousands of people living in, working in and visiting Bristol use the Bristol Pound. They’re using paper Bristol Pounds to buy groceries and train fares, paying by app for cycle repairs and using online repeat payments to pay their council tax. Bristol was the first UK city to have its own currency and the Bristol Pound continues to grow.
Bristol Pound CIC are looking to recruit a Membership Manager who will be responsible for supporting and growing the organisation’s business and individual membership. The role will also work closely with the wider Bristol Pound team to increase the use of the Bristol Pound in the city.
You will be experienced and comfortable working with and communicating with a diverse range of people and businesses. You will have strong customer-service skills and an eye for audience development.
You will be persuasive and collaborative in your approach to working in partnership with corporates and citizen networks in the city.
You will be outgoing, confident and persistent – up for the challenge of strengthening Bristol’s independent sector – and able to clearly and simply articulate to businesses and individuals the benefits of the Bristol Pound scheme and its related services.
You will enjoy working as part of a dynamic, creative and friendly team, as well as leading on your own work areas.
You understand why the Bristol Pound exists and want to be an integral part of building the local currency and other local economic alternatives.
