Thank you for taking an interest in career opportunities with our Chamber.
The Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC) aim to recruit individuals with the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to help meet our business objectives. We are committed to ensuring a fair and objective recruitment process.
Inherent in our core values is the recognition given to the contribution that each member of staff makes to the achievement of our business objectives through effective performance. Our staff possess a wide variety of skills and qualifications in professional, specialist, administrative and support functions.
Equally, we recognise that ‘how’ we achieve effective performance is demonstrated through a shared set of 6 competencies and behaviours, designed to support increased cross team working, customer satisfaction, personal effectiveness and support our organisational culture.
The continuing development of staff and the ability for us to identify and nurture both our talent and leaders for the future is vital to the success of GBCC. In recognition of GBCC’s continuing commitment to staff development, the Investors in People award was achieved in 1996. GBCC also achieved re recognition against the Bronze Standard in 2016.
We pride ourselves on the delivery of quality services to our members. Achievements to date include the BS EN ISO 9001 (2008) quality standard which was first achieved in January 2004 and Accredited Status by the Association of British Chambers of Commerce.
Our current Finance Director is retiring later this year. GBCC is therefore looking to recruit an outstanding CFO who will play an active part in managing and representing both the internal and external facing facets of the business participating fully in the leadership of the GBCC, reinforcing a climate of change and working with the CEO and COO to further the influence, reputation and reach of the GBCC. Candidates are likely to already hold a senior finance position within the private sector.
The CFO will have overall responsibility for developing financial strategy, business planning, business risk management and ensuring effective financial management and financial control throughout the GBCC.
We are now looking to recruit a Job Coach to provide advice, guidance and support to job seekers in their aim to gain employment. Engage with Employers to seek job vacancies and match job seekers against job specifications.
