at Innovative Medic in London
(₤20000 - ₤30000 per year)
Don’t know how to program but want to be part of the startup world? Do you want to be the first employee in a rapidly growing, profitable tech startup? Do you want to help disrupt the healthcare market in the UK to make it better, more efficient, more transparent and less wasteful? Do you want to work closely with two experienced entrepreneurs, and learn the skills that will help you build and run such a business in the future? Then come work with us and be a part of something great! But beware: you might never want to leave!
Founded by Dr. Steve Leung and Bob Leung, Innovative Medic is a dynamic, young and ambitious startup that aims to disrupt the Healthcare recruitment industry by being the “LinkedIn” of the medical sector globally.
rLocums.com is our first step towards this vision. It’s a rapidly growing web service that creates a marketplace for GP locums and GP surgeries to find each other online and organise their bookings. Launched a little over a year ago, rLocums grew from an idea two brothers had into a company processing over £1.5million of bookings. We are now on track to become a dominant player in GP locum bookings. If you want to help us make this happen, read on.
Our office is in London, at the heart of the UK Startup community. But you have the option to work from home. Your mission is to help raise awareness and usage of rLocums and for rLocums to become a household name within the medical recruitment sector.
You do not need a medical background but you must be able to think creatively about our route to market and how to get GPs and surgeries to use our system.
You will be given the freedom to come up with ideas and implement them. Of course, we’re here to help and support you. And in true startup manner, the success of an idea is judged against real time usage statistics.
The remit is simple, but you must stick to the following guidelines, which represent our values as a team and a company:
We’re the good guys: no aggressive sales tactics that damage the brand
We get things done: you need to roll sleeves up and execute the ideas
Our goal is to delight our customers: you must maintain customer satisfaction
We’re efficient: the initial marketing budget must only involve small expenses and your time, though later on bigger campaigns may be planned
We’re open and transparent: long term brand building via tools such as social media is encouraged
We are looking for a very keen person who wants to get a great start in the startup world. There are very few opportunities out there for a non-technical person to join a profitable tech startup with a global potential at ground level. You’ll be our first permanent employee!
Not only will you learn first hand the inner workings of a successful technology startup, you will be able to participate in the development of our business and most importantly, you will help shape the future of the company.
The pay starts at £20-30k/y base pay dependent on experience with a salary review every 6 months. You will be given personal targets and will receive additional bonus if you achieve the goals. As the company grows, the right person will have the opportunity to fast track through the rank of an expanding team.
This is a truly excellent opportunity if you want a strong foothold in the exciting startup scene.
This is not a job for everybody. You must be flexible, pragmatic, have tons of energy and enthusiasm, love talking to people, with excellent written and spoken communication skills. You will be making a lot of phone calls, so being able to establish rapport and not sounding like a telesales person is vital. You need to have a dedicated approach to following up over a long period of time, and be willing to try and figure out ways to help potential users even when they may not be interested in using our service at present. Healthcare is a big world, but the word spreads quickly, so having the right attitude is crucial to help us build and maintain our great reputation.
You need to be the kind of person who cares and wants to be passionate about their job. Please note that this doesn’t mean that we’ll work you to the bone. On the contrary, we believe in working healthy and productive hours. The best work is done by people who are happy, healthy and well-rested, and we want the best work.
Although there are no prerequisites in terms of skills or knowledge, it will help if you’re interested in the tech scene and in startups, and some familiarity with the world of healthcare will of course help. You must have great drive and a generally “nothing’s impossible” attitude.
HOW TO APPLY
For this role, energy and attitude, helpfulness and good organisation are critical. The recruitment process is designed to help us figure out if you’re the right person for the role.
First, please start by writing a brief (500 words or so), clear cover email outlining why you wish to work with us, what you hope to achieve, what you expect from the role, and why you’re the best person to fit our team.
As part of the initial application, please also record a brief (2-3 min) video telling us a bit about yourself, what you like, your hobby and what gets you excited!
Please attach the video as a link (youtube, or something else – does not need to be public) so that we can view it.
If you’re selected, this will be followed with a phone interview, and then an in-person interview with Steve and Bob. We will aim to reply promptly to all applications.
The start date is as soon as possible after we find you!
