Shadowing a successful creative entrepreneur across a series of new ventures, ranging from food challenger brands and influencer marketing through to VR and social commerce, you will learn more here in 2 weeks than you would on a 2-year grad scheme. The company has daily oversight of start-ups in Emerging Technology; Media & Advertising; Manufacturing; Retail & Digital Commerce.
In this role, you will see how businesses grow from the inside, how they are brought to life and how they build brand love. For anyone harbouring ambitions to one day run their own company, this is a unique opportunity to work and learn.
No two days will be the same as you will support the founder in:
- Researching and mapping out future business opportunities; shaping the brand and helping to
- execute on everything that comes up along the way.
- Joining high-level Zoom meetings with various teams, having a say – your opinions and ideas are valued
- Digital, social and influencer strategy for various brands
- Operational, project and logistical matters – helping sort out day to day problems.
- Contributing ideas to unblock challenges.
- One day you might be inspecting production on a furniture factory floor, the next you could be assisting on a food photoshoot – the environment is always fast moving so you’d need to be ready to keep up with that pace!
This is not a typical 9-5 role, so don’t apply if you’re expecting one! You may be expected to work from in and around Manchester, London, remotely, or wherever the role may take you – so an understanding and acceptance of flexibility is super important.What they can offer:
- You’ll receive on the fly support from the founder; if there’s a part of the business you want to learn more about or a skill you want to develop – you have an amazing access and opportunity to make that happen.
- If things go well and the businesses you’re involved with grow, you’re in a great position to grow with them – and potentially lead them one day. We’re looking for aspiring leaders.
- If you’re bright, ambitious, super-organised, ready to take responsibility and with a desire to make everything you do a complete success, we’d love you to apply so we can tell you more!
