Role Summary
A unique opportunity has arisen for a practical and organised person to work for one of the UK's leading social businesses.

The role reports to the Centre Manager for Bristol and will involve hands on property maintenance and related administration work at our buildings in Bristol.


The Ethical Property Company
Founded 20 years ago, the Ethical Property Company provides affordable workspace to those who most deserve it - the charities, community groups, campaigns and social businesses working for a fairer and more sustainable society.

From humble beginnings, the company has grown steadily and now owns or manages 22 centres across the UK providing affordable office, retail and conference space to over 1,000 social change organisations.

Flexible leasing arrangements provide our tenants with long-term security and working alongside like-minded organisations offers them influence-enhancing networking opportunities.


While we are driven by social and environmental values, improving shareholder value and strong investor relations are essential elements of our business model.

We have paid a dividend to our 1,300 investors every year since 2000, have attracted over £15 million in equity investment over the years, and now have a well-established secondary market regularly trading our shares and making it possible to invest at any time.

Raising new capital is always challenging but is of crucial importance to the business.
