Ivy House Community Pub Limited is seeking Expressions of Interest from shareholders interested in joining the Management Committee.

The role of the Management Committee

The committee reviews financial and administrative matters on a regular basis, and takes strategic decisions concerning both the running of the pub business, and the management of the society. The management committee is responsible for the strategic direction of the Ivy House. You can read about current members of the committee here.

Committee meetings currently take place roughly once every 6 weeks, supplemented by regular email correspondence and some ad hoc attendance on the premises as required.

We would like to hear from individuals who can participate fully in committee meetings and correspondence discussions, and contribute to ongoing administrative and strategic tasks.

Members of the management committee must also be members of the society (shareholders in the pub); however, our share offer is currently open so it will be possible for suitable candidates who are not already shareholders to buy shares before taking up their seat on the committee.

What we're looking for

  • Strong support for the Ivy House project
  • Ability to offer constructive views and creative ideas on the direction of the business
  • Commitment to volunteering, for example in community projects, committees, or steering groups
  • Experience in areas such as arts and music, PR and marketing, finance, compliance, law, HR, local government, the hospitality/pub/brewery industries, heritage or community projects
  • Ideally a regular visitor to the Ivy House
  • Previous experience of committee-led work would be valuable, but is not essential.

How to apply

Please send a CV and accompanying statement of no more than 500 words to telling us why you would like to join the Committee and what you would bring to the role. The closing date is May 1 2018.
