  • Working collaboratively with all areas of the business (including our two Co-Founders) to coordinate all internal communications. You’ll be the go-to person for information from various stakeholders across the business.
  • Creating clear and engaging content about a number of topics such as company updates, department updates, wellbeing initiatives, training, employee recognition, competitions and new starter lunches
  • Proofreading copy, and pulling out key messages from text heavy documents, in keeping with our tone of voice
  • Managing and updating the internal communications calendar
  • Organising employee meetings and events including social events

How the magic happens

We’re a team of 16 HR peeps; nine in London, four in Warsaw, two in Berlin and one in New York. This role will report into the HR Business Partner. The HR team was founded 18 months ago, we’ve achieved a huge amount in that time and we’re looking for someone to join our growing team who’s excited to build things from the ground up.

In short, we work hard, get our stakeholders and have the full support of our two Co-Founders (one Co-Founder is very easy to spot in the office, he wears an animal themed jumpers on Friday).

The deal breakers. We are looking for.  

  • Someone who gets excited by communications and engagement, with proven experience in an internal communication role
  • Ability to organise multiple projects simultaneously, prioritising competing workloads to meet deadlines
  • Someone keen to come up with new ideas and ways of doing things
  • Great content writing and proofreading skills, with a friendly and informal tone of voice
  • Experience of working in the Adobe Creative suite would be a plus
  • Some experience of creating email campaigns in a CRM tool or Mailchimp

And you are…

  • Keen to grow and get the chance to really make your mark on the role
  • Creative and proactive with lots of bright ideas
  • An excellent eye for detail
  • Someone who exceeds people’s expectations on a regular basis
  • A naturally confident communicator
  • Super organised
  • Full of energy
  • Approachable demeanour with a happy to help attitude
  • A team player with a 'can do' attitude

Things you should know

You may put on a couple of pounds joining our team. We have a mild addiction to Lola Cup Cakes, chocolate, bread, Carr’s cheese melts and pasta (essentially all dirty white carbs).

Our Global Head of HR is obsessed with her dog. Be prepared to smile and nod at regular dog updates.

Serious conversations will be held while sitting on the space hoppers by our desks. Your core stability will increase considerably.
