Are you outgoing and good at making and maintaining relationships? We're recruiting Community Champions to cover all the high street shopping areas of Bristol, helping us sign more local traders up to accept Bristol Pounds, and get more local people using the currency.
The purpose of this role is to assist the organisation in raising funds through grants, philanthropy or sponsorship. There is a potential for the right person to become a Non-Executive Director of the organisation.
Administration and Customer Service Assistant
If you enjoy working in an office environment, feel confident answering the phone and would like to use or develop your IT skills, this is the role for you. You’ll be talking to people who need information or support, liaising with business members, updating our database and generally helping around the office.
Are you an excellent communicator, with good written English and a feel for getting just the right tone of voice? We need a volunteer to help write engaging copy for our regular member emails, blog and social media channels. You’ll need some IT experience and a desire to share and hone your storytelling skills.
Are you great with numbers and keen to use or develop your accounts, bookkeeping and spreadsheet skills? If so, this is the ideal role for you. You'll be helping us manage the paper £B stocks and exchange points, process transactions on QuickBooks Online, and keep on top of online orders for £B vouchers.
We host a variety of events, including breakfast meetups for business members and evening meetings for individual members. If you're a "people person" who enjoys organising and planning events plus helping out with hosting and facilitating, this could be the role for you.
Please send all completed applications to [email protected].
We look forward to hearing from you!
