Office Manager

Posted 13 November by MyBuilder

MyBuilder.com helps homeowners find reliable tradespeople through the power of online reviews. We’re a market leader in the UK and are part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.)

THE ROLE

So, let me start by saying that despite the job title, this isn’t your ordinary Office Manager role. In fact, we aren’t necessarily even looking for someone who has been an Office Manager in the past. This is a role for the creative, the free thinker, the get-out-of-bed-and-attack-the-day’er and for all those that get a genuine kick at the prospect of creating and maintaining an environment that everybody will love working in.

A culture of excellence runs through our company. People really care and want everything they do to be awesome. We call that 'pride in a job well done’. How does that relate to the role of Office Manager? Over the years we’ve worked hard to create a collaborative, creative and sociable environment that really gets the best out of people. Your role will be to uphold and build on this, inspiring productivity, togetherness and success through the creation of a world-class working environment. No two days are the same at MyBuilder and you will never hear the words, ’Not my job’. You will approach all of your responsibilities with enthusiasm - whether that’s ensuring there is enough toilet roll in the building, watering our many plants or organising regular social outings. You will thrive on being the go-to person for all office-related matters and deem no job too big or too small, nor any task beneath you.

THE PERSON

Prior to becoming a successful tech entrepreneur, our CEO Ryan had an eclectic work history. He was an artist, a lifeguard, a cook, a stonemason, a roofer and even a pharmaceutical guinea pig! While we’re not necessarily looking for ex-lifeguards, an interesting and varied work history would serve you well. For this office manager role, qualifications are much less important to us than personal qualities. We would love to meet people who enjoy helping others, are curious about lots of things and interesting to talk to, are not afraid of having a go at something new, take pride in everything they do and who possess boundless positive energy.

Based in our modern and spacious HQ in the creative hotspot of Clerkenwell, we enjoy the local mix of pubs, cafes, parks and food markets that the area has to offer. It’s also an exciting time to be joining us as we are about to launch a product that will revolutionise our space. In addition to all of this, we will also offer:
