Bristol Pound is currently in the process of transitioning to a new financial product, that will be called Bristol Pay. The Bristol Pound local currency was launched in 2012 and quickly became the UK's largest complementary currency. It focused on encouraging people to shop with local independent businesses, and on encouraging those businesses to localise their supply chains. We've learned a lot from running the currency for 8 years, and we feel that now is the time to address some of the wider issues we face, by operating at scale and encouraging people to engage with each other and the city's problems through a completely new sort of complementary currency or token. Bristol Pay will be an e-wallet platform for the whole city. We want to make a form of digital money that is truly accessible to everyone. We want to operate at scale so that we can channel surpluses from transaction charges back into funding social and environmental projects across the city. We want to experiment with tokens to encourage the development of the sharing economy, and to engage people with changing their lifestyles to address the issues in Bristol's One City Plan - like being a carbon neutral city by 2030. Together we can create a money system that is part of the solution in creating an economy that works for people and planet.

THE BIGGEST TEAM YOU'LL EVER JOIN The Army is the biggest team you’ll ever join, and our key purpose is to defend the interests of the UK and our overseas territories But it goes further than that. We’ll be called upon to support peacekeeping missions, help people affected by natural disasters and work to prevent terrorism all over the world. So, you could find yourself taking part in operations overseas, but you’ll also be able to learn a trade and master new skills that will set you up for life. WHEN YOU JOIN THE REGULAR ARMY, YOU’LL BE A FULL-TIME SOLDIER You’ll live and work on military bases, either in the UK or overseas – but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your old life. Unless you’re away on operations or training exercises you’ll normally work 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. You’ll also get 38 days leave a year, which is more than most civilian jobs. DEPLOYMENT If you’re deployed on operations, you’re normally away for six months, but you’ll get an extra four weeks off when you get back on top of your annual leave. What’s more, you’ll earn extra cash while you’re away. FREE TIME Outside work, you can spend your time however you choose, whether that’s keeping up with hobbies, using the sports facilities on base, socialising or seeing family. When you’re living with your friends in Army accommodation, you won’t have to look far for someone to talk to or ways to relax. You’ll face the challenge of serving on operations, using your skills where they’re needed most. You’ll also get to take part in training exercises in places like Canada, Belize in Central America or Brunei in South East Asia. What’s more, you’ll have lots of opportunities for Adventurous Training – these are outdoor activities that will develop key skills like leadership, teamwork, fitness and courage. It’s great fun too! Whatever you’re good at, chances are you can do it in the Army. There are hundreds of jobs to choose from and they all offer the chance to get qualified and work with some great people. LEADING FROM THE FRONT Army officers lead and care for their soldiers. They make sure that their teams of soldiers have the right skills and motivation to perform at their very best. You can start your Army officer career at the age of 18 - you don't need to have a degree, just good A Levels (or equivalent). If you're keen to join the Army as an officer but you're still in education, you might be interested in applying for a scholarship or bursary, which will give you extra financial support while you study, before graduating and heading to Sandhurst for officer training. Once you've started at Sandhurst, you'll learn military skills, while building on your leadership skills as well as making friendships that will last a lifetime. After your training, Army life will vary depending on the capbadge that you choose. You'll find yourself in a management role, with a team of soldiers working for you from the start. You'll combine your leadership skills with your subject knowledge to make sure that your team works efficiently and as well as they can. You'll also enjoy fitness, travel and adventure as part of your Army life. CONFIDENCE THAT LASTS A LIFETIME Whichever career you choose, a role in the Army is challenging, fulfilling and above all full of opportunities to develop yourself.
