Are you passionate about business in Moray Speyside? Join our team!
Moray Chamber of Commerce is an organisation that’s here for every size of business, from those that export their products around the world, to national chains, to the smallest local enterprise. The organisation as it is today is focused on having a fresh outlook on business and delivering a dynamic, supportive, informative and professional service to every one of its members.
Due to the pandemic now more than ever it needs to be here for its members. Whether that is sign posting to funding, campaigning for more support, influencing guidance and policy or sharing their news, Moray Chamber prides itself on always being here for them.
Chambers of Commerce perform several functions for their members. They’re networking forums – business clubs – facilitating the making of contacts and the sharing of knowledge and experience. They provide services for members such as training, mentor matching, events, learning opportunities and business support. Members can offer discounted professional services to fellow members. The Chamber also gathers a collective business view with a view to influencing decision making that will affect that local business community.
We are currently looking for two new people to join our team:
We are looking for someone who can listen and act, be both proactive and reactive when appropriate. Learn what business needs and work with them and others to inform and educate to influence change. This could be local or national government and could be on policy or practical topics.
You’ll be someone who’s confident to pick up the phone, answer questions and go out and about around Moray, sharing the benefits of Chamber Membership. You’ll be out and about on a regular basis, meeting representatives and leaders from a wide range of Moray businesses. All of our members are important to us and in many cases, you will be their first and most regular point of contact.
We’d like you to strive to improve our customer service and build alliances with stakeholders.
You’ll plan and execute our calendar of events, which in this climate will be virtual at first, but we hope physical events can resume soon.
There is some events and meetings out with the normal working day, with some early mornings and evening working required on occasion.
