Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC is recruiting a Chief Executive & an Independent Chair
29th February 2016
Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC is currently seeking an Independent Chair to lead the organisation and a Chief Executive to lead the executive operations of the Partnership.
Founded in 2007 with an initial group of 12 organisations, and formed as a Community Interest Company in 2014, the Partnership has grown in reach and impact to over 800 member organisations, ranging from big businesses and the public sector to charities and community based organisations – all united by a pledge to help make Bristol a ‘low carbon city with a high quality of life for all’.
The Partnership is a key organisation to continue the work achieved as part of Bristol 2015 – European Green Capital.
The Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC is entering a new phase in its development. From January 2016 the Partnership CIC will be governed by a new Board of Directors on behalf of its pledge member organisations.
The Board includes senior individuals from Bristol City Council, University of Bristol, University of the West of England, Triodos Bank, West of England Initiative, Resource Futures, Centre for Sustainable Energy, Avon Wildlife Trust and Sustrans. In addition, two Directors have been elected from the wider membership of organisations.
