What’s your ideal job? Have you sat and thought about it, I mean really thought about it?
Do you want to sit behind a desk from 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday, typing away on a PC, no human contact, nothing to challenge you, eating grey sandwiches from a grey canteen during your grey lunch? No, well, read on.
When someone says start-up to you, what do you think? Flashy offices, slides that come down from the ceiling, Kale on tap 24-7, along with beer and wine, long lunches talking about macroeconomics, diversity of demographic and target audiences for your next Facebook campaign? We talk about that stuff as well!
But when we talk, we’re also managing 15 other things at the same time, chatting to customers, clients and couriers, rearranging jobs as one of our riders has buckled his wheel, responding to a twitter feed, sourcing content for social media, testing new software designed to make the customer experience the best it can be. And being objective about the whole business at one.
Sound like something you’d enjoy. It’s not glamorous, it’s really hard work, with long hours managing the operation and service channels of our business.
So, what’s in it for you? At the beginning, not much. Tired eyes, a brain that won’t stop thinking, demanding customers and even more demanding clients and then there’s the couriers. They are the most demanding of all.
But you’ll have a sense of enormous satisfaction, the feeling that you’ve helped build a brilliant company, focused on the customer and the care or our drivers. You’ve contributed to new tech and IT, suggested ways of working that has delivered real benefit to the business and although this is an entry position, your voice counts. We will listen to you in the same way we listen to all our team.
You’ll probably be a graduate, or have a good set of GCSEs’. You’ll be tech savvy and want to know more about the IT world and how it can be used to enhance customer experienced. You’ll be able to challenge your colleagues with well-constructed debates and suggestions. You’ll certainly want more than an employee status in your life, helping to build something that you’ll one day have a stake in.
If you’re a clock watcher, this isn’t for you. Office hours are 12:00 – 22:00
with a 1 hour lunch break.
This position will pay £18K, you’ll be working Saturday and Sunday every week although you’ll have a couple of days off in the week, you’ll care about sustainability, the environment, earnings and have a focused sense of fairness.
But above all, you’ll be an astonishing individual who wants to take an opportunity and exploit it.
