Become a BID Board Member!

After a yes vote on the BID ballot for St Albans in 2016, the BID Company was given the green light to invest £2.5m in the City Centre over 5 years.

As Year 1 comes to a close, we are looking for up to three new dynamic board members to shape our story.

Our main aim is to strengthen the board with senior levy payers from a broad background to represent a wide range of sectors such as digital, marketing, leisure, hospitality or finance; keeping a balance on age, gender and the different areas within the district.

During this period, £2.5 million will be invested into the BID’s priorities: making St Albans a cleaner and safer City, driving business support and networking and promoting an active and attractive district where businesses can start-up, stay up and thrive.

We want to hear from senior decision makers from large organisations or SMEs that are currently BID levy payers who want to give back to the community and help improve the City by delivering the core areas within the BID business plan.

Board members are expected to attend a minimum of five meetings per year as well additional subgroups based on their individual backgrounds and skill sets. Board members are expected to take a leading role alongside the BID team to help develop initiatives within the main priorities for the City.

Join our current board members and make a difference to your City.
