Jobs and volunteering

The Bristol Pound is an exciting initiative run by a highly motivated and passionate team. It is an extremely rewarding and enjoyable project to work on, making it a great place to get involved in doing something good for Bristol.

We are committed to equal opportunities and applications are welcomed from all who believe they fit the essential requirements of the job. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as we are keen to increase representation of these groups at Bristol Pound CIC.

There are two current vacancies:

Business Relationship Manager

Salary: £23,000 pro rata

Reports to: Programme Manager
Days: 4 days a week – 32 hours
Location: Bristol Pound office, Corn Exchange, Bristol City Centre
 

About the role

Thousands of people living or working in Bristol and many visitors to the city use the Bristol Pound. They’re using paper Bristol Pounds to buy groceries and train fares, paying by text message for cycle repairs and using online repeat payments to pay their council tax. Bristol’s the first city to have its own currency and the Bristol Pound continues to grow.

Bristol Pound (which is a not-for-profit organisation) is looking to expand its team who are responsible for managing and growing the organisation’s individual and business membership, increasing the impact of the local currency, and promoting the scheme around Bristol and beyond.

The Business Relationship Manager will be responsible for managing and growing the organisation’s relationships with its business members.


About you

You will be experienced and comfortable working with businesses and partners of different sizes and trades.

You will be persuasive and collaborative in your approach to working in partnership.

You will be outgoing, confident and persistent – up for the challenge of strengthening Bristol’s independent sector – and able to clearly articulate to businesses and partners the benefits of working together.

You will enjoy working as part of a dynamic, creative and friendly team, as well as leading on your own specialism.

You understand why the Bristol Pound exists and want to be an integral part of building the local currency and other local economic alternatives.
