BBRC is looking for someone experienced in partnership working and programme management to support the development of the Bristol Local Access Partnership and City Funds, facilitating their collaborative planning and delivery.
Working closely with all partners the Programme Manager will facilitate, coordinate and enable the work of the Bristol Local Access Partnership’s Programme Management Board and the City Funds Governing Board, the bodies which oversee, direct and monitor the work of their respective programmes.
This role will suit someone who is confident speaking to boards, working across organisations and acting as a 'critical friend', while also willing to 'muck in' and deal with the day-to-day realities of working in a small growing business and with a range of public, private and voluntary sector partners.
This is an excellent opportunity to play an important and active part in the development of two city-wide programmes focused on building Bristol's social economy.
Background – who we are
The Bristol Local Access Partnership and City Funds are both part of Bristol’s One City Approach.
City Funds brings together the public and private sectors, mixing investment, grant-funding and pro bono support to make Bristol a fair, healthy and sustainable city. It is a collaboration between Quartet Community Foundation, BBRC and Bristol City Council, funding solutions that target the causes and effects of inequality.
The Bristol Local Access Partnership works to join up the efforts within the city to develop, support and enable the social economy sector to build inclusion and equity. Specifically, it works to:
- develop increased resilience and sustainability in social enterprises led by people from communities experiencing inequality.
- achieve change in how accessible these enterprises find the social investment market and to see increased diversity in enterprises receiving social investment.
Currently, the Partnership is delivering the Bristol Local Access Programme (LAP) which consists of the following strands:
- Three enterprise development projects aiming to grow and develop social enterprises
- Two blended investment projects, aiming to make social investment more accessible.
The LAP currently comprises BBRC, Black South West Network, School for Social Entrepreneurs, Voscur, Eastside Community Trust, Nature Youth Connection Education, Street2Boardroom, Unique Voice and WECIL.
Bristol & Bath Regional Capital CIC (BBRC) makes use of investment to address systemic inequalities in our region. We believe that an inclusive local economy just works better. When everyone plays their part, our regional economy will be more creative, resilient, and vibrant. We’re working to be the driving force behind this change. We are the accountable body for the LAP and adviser to City Funds.
