Enterprise Officer (Marketing & Sales)

  • Part time
  • £24,479 – £30,376 pro-rata
  • Nairn (with the potential for some homeworking) (On site)
  • Closing 14th April 2024

The Enterprise Officer will work with the Chief Executive and the wider team to develop and implement a marketing plan that increases income through the efficient delivery and strategic long-term growth of Green Hive’s various lines of commercial trade, meeting specific targets for each of the next two years (April 2024-March 2026) and using both in-person and online channels to facilitate profitable business-to-business and business-to-consumer interactions.

Context: Launched in 2015, Green Hive (formally Nairn River Enterprise) is a community hub and a charity that specialises in volunteer-led projects and other initiatives, helping to conserve, restore and sustainably develop the natural habitats and public amenities of Nairn and Nairnshire, while cultivating skills and employability and improving outcomes for residents and visitors. Over the last decade the organisation has developed a suite of core business operations that focus on reducing pollution and waste, recycling and re-using discarded man-made materials and promoting more positive interactions with the local environment. It has done this while gradually consolidating its own financial position in support of longer-term organisational sustainability and growth. Recent investment from the Postcode Innovation Trust takes us to the next level, and the recruitment of a dedicated marketing and sales specialist will be pivotal to our ongoing plans. In November 2022 Green Hive took ownership of Seaman’s Hall in the Fishertown precinct of Nairn; over the last year it has been developing public programmes aimed at re-establishing this important historic building as a community hub. We are also formulating capital development plans for the facility. The Enterprise Officer will support these activities, playing a key role in the implementation and continuing evolution of our five-year strategic business plan.

Top job! Chief Executive Officer

  • Full time
  • £39,712
  • Nairn
  • Closing 17th November 2023

Are you looking for a new challenge? Do you want to make a lasting difference to the Nairn community and environment? Green Hive is growing and is now ready to recruit its first CEO.

Simon Noble, Chair of Trustees says:

"Having secured substantial investment from the Postcode Innovation Trust, Green Hive is at a dramatic point in its development. Because our current chief, Neil, sadly, is moving on to new horizons we are in a position to offer candidates for the CEO role a fantastic opportunity to help us reach new heights.

We now have the basis to engage more local volunteers, provide training and support to more people, and generate more self-sustaining income from the work of our plastics and fabrics teams. At a competitive salary for the sector, nestled alongside the beaches and hills of the Highlands, this is a truly exciting point to join an award-winning environmental charity."

This is an exciting time for us as we expand our staff team, grow our volunteer base, develop Seaman’s Hall as a community hub and our outstanding fabric, plastics, active travel, and outdoor projects.

We want to appoint a CEO who can take the lead in working with the Board, recruiting to and managing our staff team, helping us grow our trading income, reducing our dependence on grant funding, and taking on new projects and staff as funds allow.

This role is likely to appeal to those with experience of social impact, managing staff, managing and controlling budgets, grant fundraising, and generating income through social enterprise - preferably in a voluntary sector, social enterprise, or environmental organisation.

An understanding of environmental action, recycling, and the re-purposing of waste is highly desirable but not essential. Experience of trading, sales, and marketing would also be very useful.

This is a full-time contract, subject to ongoing funding. Remuneration £39,712.
