Are you based in Bristol and passionate about making your community a better place? Want to support people at the forefront of creating social and environmental change?
We’re looking for a marketing associate to help us reach people in South Bristol with ideas for positive change. At the School for Social Entrepreneurs, we support them to set up and grow social enterprises, charities and community projects.
You’ll be working on our South Bristol Enterprise Support programme (SBES), helping to reach people in the area who could benefit from an amazing support offer: free workshops, one-to-one coaching and grants.
You’ll build networks and relationships with organisations across Bristol, create marketing and communications plans and materials, and help people discover how to access our support.
You’ll love the city of Bristol and have ideas about which organisations and networks could be brimming with people ready to become social entrepreneurs and start community projects.
About the School for Social Entrepreneurs
We can’t fix issues like poverty, climate change and ill-health alone. That’s why the School for Social Entrepreneurs exists.
We help 1,000 people a year develop the skills, strengths and networks they need to tackle society’s biggest problems. We run courses that equip people to start, scale and strengthen organisations that make a positive difference.
But we’re not a traditional school. Learning with SSE is inspiring, action-based and accessible. We support people in other ways too, such as funding and mentoring. Lord Michael Young founded SSE in 1997. Today we work internationally, with teams across the UK, Canada and India. Together, we’re changing lives and transforming communities. More info is available on our website.
SBES delivers tailored advice, coaching and grants to individuals and businesses across South Bristol; primarily targeting the South Bristol Regeneration Area, including industrial and development sites on the south western periphery (as defined in the South Bristol Sustainable Urban Development (SUD) Strategy). More info is available on our website.
Our commitment to inclusion
Diversity is a fact of life. Inclusion is a choice and a practice – for organisations and individuals. At the School for Social Entrepreneurs, our aim is to drive inclusion into every area and activity of what we do: from access to programmes, to grant investment, to board, staff and partnerships.
However you identify, we would like to hear from you. In our commitment to continue to diversify our teams, freelance staff and programmes, we are particularly keen to hear from those who identify as: being from black, Asian and minoritised ethnic backgrounds; LGBTQ+; and those with disabilities.
