Junior Marketing & Community Manager - Onhand

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 06/06/2019

onHand is an on-demand marketplace to give and get help, focused on older adult living assistance. According to City AM we’re "Revolutionising care by connecting and mobilising a unique community". Graduate of Facebook's LDN_LAB accelerator, now launched with 1500 users and counting.

Job Description:

Fantastic opportunity for a graduate with 1-3 years experience to join a fast growing start-up in the heart of Brighton.

onHand is a marketplace app that allows people to give and get help, whenever and wherever they are. It’s enabled “on-demand volunteering” and with over 1500 app downloads within weeks, this is an exciting moment to join us. Our focus is using the app to match volunteers with older adults who need help with basic tasks. Things like shopping, tech lessons, help around the house or simply sharing a cup of tea and having a chat. In doing so, we believe onHand can help address the growing care crisis facing our ageing population and maybe just leave the world a better place too.

As our first hire, you will be at the heart of everything we do to engage and onboard members of our marketplace community. If we are successful, we expect to grow very quickly, expanding across the UK and then internationally. The scope for personal and professional growth for any team member joining us at this stage should be tremendous.

Key responsibilities

As a fast growing start-up, you’ll be expected to be involved in all aspects of the business. Key responsibilities will include: engaging our customers and volunteers using social and other channels; writing creative blog posts to attract users to the service; organising events to engage our volunteers; liaising with our customers and volunteers to make matches and ensure they work well for all; and meeting and onboarding new volunteers when needed.

We expect the role to involve some days in London and occasionally some odd hours, so willingness to be flexible is needed (but we are nice and will be flexible too in ensuring you take hours back when you need it!).

What we offer

Brand new co-working office space in the centre of Brighton. Your choice of laptop and phone (budget provided – want Apple? You got it!). 25 days holiday a year plus bank holidays. Pension and other Bens. The role may also attract equity at the appropriate stage. The founder has a 20 year career in tech working for some of the UK’s first unicorns and launching new ventures across the US and Europe. You will work directly with him and see all aspects of running a start-up, from customer acquisition, investor engagement and tech build, to setting up the latest digital and productivity tools to ensure we operate as efficiently as possible.

Person Specification:

What we’re looking for

In a nutshell we’re interested in your attitude above anything else. Like solving problems, getting things done and not afraid to take on responsibility? Love engaging with new people and have a healthy dose of common sense? Want to help solve one of the greatest problems facing society and leave the world a better place? Excited by tech and the craziness of start-ups?

If this sounds like you, get in touch. We’d be excited to hear from you.
