Falmouth BID starts recruitment process


The cream of Cornwall’s marketing talent is being sought by the team behind Falmouth’s Business Improvement District.

The town is currently voting on the formation of a BID, which will unlock £500k of investment for community projects over the next five years.

With the result expected on Friday, March 13, a not-for-profit limited company has been set up to oversee the implementation of the BID.

Falmouth BID is looking for a talented and experienced graduate to become its sole employee as a project and marketing executive, hit the ground running and roll out four exciting projects designed to improve the town.

While the role is dependent on a positive outcome from the ballot, the campaign behind the BID is gaining momentum. Nigel Carpenter, chairman of the Falmouth BID steering group, said: “This is a highly visible, private sector oriented role. It’s not for the faint hearted – the Project Executive will be our only full time employee and a lot rests on their shoulders.

“We’re looking for someone who is an excellent communicator, marketer and with a persuasive personality.
“It’s important we find the right person who will work with Falmouth’s businesses and work hard to deliver these projects.”

The graduate will be responsible for raising additional sponsorship and funding to boost the BID coffers and for developing a creative and effective marketing campaign for Falmouth.

Falmouth BID is working closely with Unlocking Cornish Potential, the Combined Universities in Cornwall’s graduate placement scheme, managed by Cornwall College and backed by the Convergence fund, to find the right person and provide ongoing support.

Closing date for applications is Saturday, March 7. A full job description can be viewed at www.unlockingcornishpotential.co.uk, for more information call 01209 617689.
