The right person
This is a tricky position to recruit for! We'd love to find someone with good admin skills, who also loves working with people, and who his genuinely keen to host and cultivate Weston's creative community at The Stable. Bits of the job will be repetitive as with any role but, to a very real extent, you can mould the role into what you want it to be, channelling your energies into strategic social media activity, events planning and management, interior improvement and design, marketing and more depending on where your skills lie. As long as the key bits of the job get done, and our members are happy, there is scope to do more of what you're good at.
It will be a slow first few months as things get off the ground with offers, events and gatherings to help raise awareness about The Stable. It'll be you and the manager in the building, plus whoever's hotdesking or room renting that day. Into 2018, it will then start to get busier and busier with new members and more events and meeting room hires. Phase Two of the refurb comes in late 2018 and will take a big chunk of our time. The ideal candidate will want part-time work initially with a view to more hours (up to full-time) from around spring 2018 or perhaps earlier.
