What’s this role about?
The Community Manager is a key member of our Core Team. She is the “Chief Happiness Officer”, and is responsible for ensuring that everyone who interacts with the company has an amazing experience that reflects the unique company culture. She is the energy in the room, naturally able to energise and connect people with little effort.
She provides exceptional, professional service to existing and potential clients, and ensures that the physical environment is at optimum capacity, conducive to work, and with a good mix of coworkers, in order to increase member retention within the community.
We want you if:
- You pay a lot of attention to detail.
- You take your work seriously, and you never let anything leave your table without checking it twice.
You’re warm, outgoing, and great with people.
- If you know how to manage people’s expectations and reactions (especially when things don’t go as planned), then this role may just be for you.
- Are you the sort of person that has ‘a guy’ for everything? Are you the one people go to when they don’t know how to get things done, because you always have the answer? We want you!
You can take ownership of a project and manage it fully.
- You can get things done without constant reminders or someone looking over your shoulder. If something needs doing, we can trust you to get it done quickly and efficiently.
You can work efficiently in a fast-paced environment.

You have exceptional communication skills.
- You must know how to write and speak in a professional environment, and be able to clearly communicate the benefits and shortfalls of competing options.
- You’re great with everyday office software, e.g. Word, Excel, and web-based tools like Google Drive, and you’re generally comfortable with learning new technology.
- You love to learn new things and make an impact wherever you are.
- You’re passionate (and in-the-know) about startups and small businesses.
