The Partnership is expanding – join our team!
12th June 2023
Would you, or someone you know, like to join our friendly team and support Bristol on the journey to becoming carbon neutral and nature-rich by 2030?
Over the last two years Bristol Green Capital Partnership has secured additional funding to work with our members and key partners; expand our work with businesses via the Climate Action Programme and with communities via the Community Climate Action Project, and deliver action towards a zero carbon, socially just Bristol where communities and nature thrive.
To help deliver an ambitious programme of work, the Partnership is now recruiting for three new posts – each providing unique opportunities to work with organisations and communities across the city at this pivotal moment in Bristol’s decade of transformation. These are:
- Senior Coordinator (Community Climate Action Project) who will work closely with the Head of Community Partnerships to manage the Community Climate Action Project and other integrated projects with community and co-production principles at their heart. The Community Climate Action Project is delivered in partnership with 18 partners, including community partner organisations, the local council, and the Centre for Sustainable Energy. 28 hours per week, £30,000 per annum (pro rata), fixed term until 31 July 2025
- Projects and Operations Coordinator who will work closely with the Head of Operations and collaborate across the staff team to provide support and initiative across a wide-ranging programme of membership engagement events, communications, forums and collaborative projects. 28 hours per week, £25,000 – £27,000 per annum (pro rata), fixed term for 12 months
- Administrator who will provide essential administrative support across our programmes and projects, maintaining first point of contact communications and data management processes for our membership of over 1,100 organisations and undertaking a range of administrative responsibilities to support projects. 28 hours per week, £21,500 per annum (pro rata), permanent
Our vision of a socially-just city where all our communities and nature thrive, emphasises the important interconnections between climate and nature action and social justice, and the need to tackle them together. Our public statement of intent outlines our commitment to a just transition and the ways in which we aim to support it through our work.
We recognise the importance of an inclusive society, creating opportunities and access for all individuals. We are committed to promoting equality, valuing diversity, ensuring accessibility, and respecting human rights. We strive to ensure that marginalised groups are represented and that our organisation reflects the diversity of the city in which we operate (considering all protected characteristics). We encourage and welcome applications from candidates from all backgrounds. Please contact us for an informal chat about the role (contact details below).
