The BID employs one full time Ambassador to help in all aspects of the BID’s work, employed through The Welcome People who operate in BIDs across the country. She is instantly recognisable by her hat and smile and will be happy to help wherever she can. Liz’s duties are:
Account management: To visit all businesses within the BID area, both on a scheduled basis and an ad hoc basis to introduce herself, provide information about her role and how the service will develop. She is 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: She is the eyes and ears of the BID and reports 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. She records what she sees on her handheld devices so that we can produce data about what is happening and work to resolve issues.
Connecting: Liz works with the statutory services (Wandsworth Council, TFL, Metropolitan Police) to highlight any issues that may cause concern for businesses and to try to resolve the issues you report such as graffiti, litter, illegal street trading, faulty street lights, broken pavements and anti-social behaviour.
Welcoming: Liz also provides an information and a welcoming service for visitors, workers and residents. She helps to promote Putney to visitors, direct them to the easiest train station, specific businesses, places of interest and events.
