We’re recruiting a Resident & Business Liaison Management Team
Pride in London 2013 was a huge success and it was delivered by amazing volunteers from across the LGBT+ community alongside fabulous straight allies.
Planning for 2014 is now well under way and we are looking for even more people to get involved to make Pride in London even bigger and better.
We are recruiting to some key volunteer roles to start right away on that planning and preparation.
Resident and Business Liaison
The Resident & Business Liaison (RBL) team is vital to the success of the of the big day itself.
The road closures for Pride affect 2.5 million people in the capital on the day. Businesses and residents need to be informed, re-informed and nearer the day informed again. Businesses need to understand how they can make and accept deliveries and service customers and when they can return to normal.
We would also like to encourage businesses in the Pride footprint to contribute to the day and be part of making Pride even bigger, more engaging and powerful.
The RBL team are the face of the Pride Board in the run up to the festival and on the big day for the businesses and residents in and around Oxford Street, Regent Street and Soho.
We’re looking for three Resident & Business Liaison Team Managers
Reporting into David Embleton, the RBL Director, the team will work together to:
- set up this and future years’ strategy
- meet with the affected businesses and residents associations
- encourage big business to become part of the event going forward
- work with the Volunteer Management Team to recruit the wider team
- execute the RBL strategy, beginning January 2014
- be the face of the Pride Board on the day itself
These manager roles will potentially involve representing Pride in negotiations with the big retailers/property companies in the centre of London so we’re looking for confident, focused and personable people with professional experience.
If you are interested in being at the heart of the UK’s biggest LGBT event and making a real difference for your community, we’d like to hear from you.
Send David a message saying how you think you fit the role by 8th December.
If you are interested in supporting Pride in London but don’t think this is for you don’t worry, there will be lots more opportunities to get involved. Just watch this space.
