The BID employs two full time Ambassadors to help in all aspects of the BIDs work. Employed through The Welcome People who operate in BIDs across the country, the team work six days a week for eight hours a day. They are instantly recognizable by their hats and smiles and will be happy to help wherever they can. There duties are:
Account management: The Ambassadors visit all businesses within the BID Area, both on a scheduled basis and an adhoc basis to introduce themselves, provide information about their role and how the service will develop. The team are a vital link between businesses and organisations within the BID Area and Positively Putney BID, to ensure that businesses are getting the best out of the BID services and projects.
Reporting: They are the eyes and ears of the BID and report various environmental and other issues to the appropriate authority, so that collectively we can ensure that Putney is the best it can be for businesses, staff and all users. They record what they see in the city on their handheld devices so that we can produce data about what is happening and work to resolve issues.
Connecting: The Ambassadors work with the statutory services (Wandsworth Council, TFL, Metropolitan Police) to highlight any issues that may cause concern for businesses to try to resolve the issues you report to them such as graffiti, litter, illegal street trading, faulty street lights, broken pavements and anti-social behaviour.
Welcoming: Our BID Ambassadors provide an information and a welcoming service for visitors, workers and residents. They help to promote Putney to visitors, direct them to easiest train station, specific businesses, places of interest and events.
