We’re looking for a brilliant, sociable and cool-headed Head Of Front of House to be the first and last impression on anyone in our busy co-working space. You’ll be co-ordinating the Front Of House team, managing the running of our beloved space, as well as acting as right-hand man to our brilliant Managing Director.

Liaising with our startups, problem-solving, being first port of call for our MD – you’ll be at the heart of the organisation, thinking fast, taking on a variety of challenges and getting stuck in.
What You’ll Be Doing:
Being a daily godsend
We host some of the best tech talent in the UK, and they deserve impeccable service – we need someone who can lead a team providing everything our startups need – from cheery welcomes, problem solving, or suggesting improvements.
You’ll be keeping an eagle eye on the day to day running, making sure that our startups have what they need, (be that a whiteboard, a new sofa or a motivational chant). You’ll also be coordinating with our Managing Director, to ease her workload, and help the place run smoothly.
Maintaining our kingdom
It will be up to you to ensure the working space is in top condition – maintained, well-stocked, in good repair and well organised, especially when we host events.
Joining our adventure
We’re a team of entrepreneurial thinkers who want to make the happiest, most productive, most exciting working environment in town, nay the world, nay the galaxy, nay (you get the picture)]
Who You Are:
We need someone to be a port in our glorious storm – meticulous eye for detail and lists, who loves making order out of (occasional) chaos
As this is a managerial role, we’d like someone with experience of managing team, ideally in hospitality and/or retail.
Both in person and written – you’ll be dealing with lots of different, marvellous people all day every day, and we want you to love meeting new people, being creative and trying new things.
