This is an exciting new role. You will be joining a small, friendly and driven team of 4 people who want to make a positive difference to people’s lives.

What is The Bank?

The Bank is a new social enterprise space in the heart of Chopwell, opening in October 2021.

It will provide a welcoming space for our community to meet, eat, take part in activities and learn new skills. It will combine a range of services including a cafe, evolving training programmes, social events, and spaces for local businesses to start up and grow.

More information about The Bank is available at www.chopwell.org/the-bank and on The Bank, Chopwell’s Facebook page.

Who is Chopwell Regeneration CIO?

Chopwell Regeneration CIO is a charity that was formed by residents of Chopwell in 2017.

Our charity is dedicated to making Chopwell an even better place to live. Our 8 trustees work with over 130 members and 100+ volunteers from Chopwell to create grassroots projects that first and foremost benefit the people who live here. This includes everything from social events to training programmes, to our biggest project yet - refurbishing the former Lloyds Bank and turning it into a space that will become a well-used, valuable community asset.

It is essential that every staff member we recruit, whatever their role, will be interested and engaged with the people who live here.
