Plunkett is a national organisation and has been the leading expert in rural community business for over 100 years. Community businesses are enterprises that are owned and run democratically by members of the community and others, on behalf of the community. Plunkett foundation currently works with over 600 community businesses and this number is continually growing. They come in many forms - including shops, pubs, woodlands and anything which lends itself to community ownership. In addition to developing and safeguarding valuable assets and services, community businesses address a range of issues including isolation, loneliness, wellbeing, work and training. We are seeking to grow and develop our membership benefits and network to ensure that all community businesses can access the very best advice and support at every stage of setting up and trading and are therefore pleased to announce an opportunity for a Membership Manager to join the team.
