Vacancies & Opportunities

Think of this as a noticeboard rather than a discussion board. And, in the spirit of Principle 6, I'm sure people posting something here will be very pleased if you can spread their info more widely.

Hi Dave

I haven't, and I'll give it a go...but, like many "coop" pubs, I've found them to be wholly uninterested in the coop side of things, sadly. I'll see if i can find some one who might be a bit more engaged - let me know if you know any names.

Thanks for the thought

Have you had a conversation with the co-operatively owned Spotted Cow in Holbrook just up the hill?

I don't know if they would be interested in a microbrewery but its worth asking the question.

Coop brewery seeks new home/coop....

Hi folks

very sad to say that my time with Bartleby's brewery has come to an end and we're looking to sell up.

we're currently putting the equipment etc up for sale, independent of the coop/business https://www.siba.co.uk/awpcp/show-ad/?id=34340

but we're also very much open to talking to a coop (existing or possibly to be formed for this) to discuss possibilities of taking bartleby's on in some form.

The brewery is currently in Belper, in Derbyshire, but the kit can potentially be relocated.

We're asking for £30,000 if we sell the equipment commercially, but we can negotiate this considerably if a coop want to take it on.

Please feel free to spread the word, and obviously get in touch if you have any questions.

Hi matt, this is not quite at the same level but some organisations like school for social entrepreneurs in devon run various courses (some fully funded) where they help people set up or scale up social enterprises and though they are not just about co-ops they do included looking at co-ops as a potential structure and they often include visits to existing co-ops for the students of the program; they came to visit us (harvest workers co-op) recently as part of their start-up program with a group of young people... I imagine there are similar organisations around uk, thou of course this is much smaller scale and a bit niche so may or may not be of help for your ideas, but just in case is of interest...
