Job Description

In this role, you will learn about how to build a business and bring it to life. For anyone harbouring ambitions to one day run their own company, this is a great opportunity to be involved in setting something up and learning on the front line.
 
No two days will be the same as you will support the founding team in:
  • Researching and mapping out the business opportunity; shaping the business plan and helping to execute on that
  • Contributing to the website build and product roadmap; getting your hands dirty learning about how the site works, making updates to content and supporting on the delivery of new features
  • Account management support for the B2B side of the business
  • Consumer marketing - you’ll likely get knee-deep in all key marketing channels
  • Providing excellent customer care
  • Operational and logistical matters – helping sort out day to day problems.
  • Admin where necessary, anything, and everything that comes along with getting a business up and running.
  • Contributing ideas to unblock challenges 
This is not a typical 9-5 role, so don’t apply if you’re expecting one!
 
What they are looking for:
  • Proactive is your middle name - you love problem solving, you are naturally curious and you never ask a question without proposing a solution
  • Experience and enthusiasm for digital businesses - this could be a passion for social media, knowledge and experience of HTML or just being an avid online shopper with informed opinions about good online consumer experiences
  • A strong work ethic and a humble attitude combined with a drive to progress and develop quickly
What they can offer:
 
You’ll receive personal coaching by the founders; if there’s a part of the business you want to learn more about or a skill you want to develop – they can help. You can also immerse yourself in the world of start-ups and an amazing pool of advisors and connections. If things go well and the business grows, you’re in a great position to grow with it – if things don't work out, you will still have learnt very valuable and transferable skills on launching a business; you’ll learn more here in 3 months than on a 2 year grad scheme – invaluable experience. If you’re bright, outgoing, computer literate, analytical, super organised, ready to take responsibility, well-motivated, with a desire to build a business from the ground up, we’d love you to apply so we can tell you more!
