|The Bristol Pound is a not-for-profit partnership between Bristol Pound Community Interest Company (CIC) and Bristol Credit Union.
Bristol Pound CIC is a company established with specific social goals and with assets of the company ‘locked in’ to community control. It is governed in line with the model of a stakeholder cooperative giving Bristol Pound account holders a say in the development of the company and representation on the board.
The Bristol Pound is the UK’s first city wide local currency, the first to have electronic accounts managed by a regulated financial institution, and the first that can be used to pay some local taxes.
About the opportunity
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.
