New Member Executive 

The New Member Executive will focus entirely on encouraging new members to join the Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce by attending local online and in-person events.  You’ll be attending a number of events each week (consisting of breakfast, lunch or evenings, some will be in-person events, some will be virtual), representing the Chamber at these events, and be able to talk clearly about the benefits of joining the Chamber.  We’re looking for someone who has the time and ability to attend a number of events each week, and who has a desire to help the business community in Cheltenham, supporting the aims of the Chamber of Commerce.

Customer Success Executive 

If you enjoy speaking to businesses, and you have an interest in the business community, this could be the role for you!

Renewal Executive 

The Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce exists to support hundreds of local businesses.  We’re looking for a tenacious individual to contact lapsed Chamber Members to encourage renewal of their membership.  This is an important role within the Chamber.  You’ll be required to contact a number of former Chamber Members each week, using a combination of channels.  You’ll have a methodical approach, be confident in approaching businesses and be able to identify quickly the core messages and features of the Chamber to use in your conversations.

The support and networking opportunities that the Chamber offered to me as director of a new business really appealed. The board and members I spoke to seemed really interested in my business.
