We’re not looking for a member of Mensa, we are however looking for someone who can handle any question thrown at them, manage any task, and take pride in helping the office hum like a well-oiled machine.



  • Manage the office expansion/refit
  • Manage all facilities maintenance and compliance requirements
  • Manage all suppliers for office services

  • Assist the Financial Controller where necessary with administration tasks
  • Manage diaries, including scheduling meetings and other appointments
  • Welcome guests on arrival to our offices offering drinks etc

We absolutely need you to have:

  • Strong written/verbal communication skills
  • Good self-motivation, enthusiasm and energy
  • Proven organisational skills, with experience using spreadsheets
  • Excellent time management skills, and be able to assess (and reshuffle when needed) priorities
  • Have previous experience in an Office Manager role

What we’re not looking for…

Pedants or Egos: Our client is a start-up so they all muck in to help. If you need a precise job description and exact details of how you’ll spend your day they are not for you, and if you’re above doing a coffee run forget it!

The role is hugely varied, no two days will be the same and it’ll suit some who’s highly proactive, collaborative, ultra efficient and would love to come and help with their continued growth.
