About You

Candidates must bring a solid marketing background with strong digital and ecommerce experience and resilience in fast-paced, high profile, and ever-changing situations (early stage start-up experience is a plus). You should also have excellent people management skills and the ability to coach and drive excellence. Although a small team of 2 currently this is set to change as the business grows quickly in the UK.

There is no doubt that this is a busy, fast-paced role but if you're someone who relishes a challenge, is set on inspiring those around you and welcomes an innovative and ambitious culture, then this is an opportunity well worth discussing. Where you work isn't just a career decision - it's a life decision and this business gets it. That's why they want their teams across the globe to feel a sense of belonging and to be supported in all areas of their lives.
