£28,000 to £32,000 for new Helston 'BID development officer'
6:00am Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
Helston Business Improvement Partnership has begun advertising for a BID development officer.
The role comes with a salary of £28,000 to £32,000 for 37.5 hours per week and the contract will last two years.
The advert states: “The HBIP are looking to recruit a motivated individual as their chief officer to deliver a BID (business improvement development) consultation, support the BIP with their project portfolio and help the organisation provide a successful future for Helston.”
Part of this will be filling a similar role to that of former town centre manager Jonathan Birkett, who left in June, including finding new sources of funding.
The closing date for applications is August 30, with the hope that someone will be in place by October or November.
BIP chairman Andy Perry said the group was looking for someone that could help members continue their projects while beginning to consult on whether the town should become a business improvement district.
“We need to keep on promoting our town, so we want to explore this avenue,” he told the Packet.
Helston Town Council has transferred £90,000 to the BIP to cover two years of salary, plus related setting up and office expenses.
In the advert the group has written: “The HBIP’s mission is to make Helston the friendliest and most prosperous market town in the UK and the next step is to become a business improvement district.”
