at ResponseiQ in London
(₤24000 - ₤35000 per year)
This job description is in two parts, the summary (in short) up top and the detailed description (in full) down below. If you want to apply, read both parts, maybe even twice, before you reach out. If you don’t want to apply then feel free to stop reading at any point, I won’t get offended because I’ll never find out.
You; in short:
To put it simply; if you’re the quiet one out of your friends, then you’re not right for this role.
The Job; in short:
You’re going to be hunting out top people for our hugely fast-growing business. From the beginning of the process (headhunt) to the “to be continued” part (cover letter/CV filtering/phone interview) all the way to the onboarding. This role has the potential to grow exponentially as our business has already grown 200% in 3 months and we do not plan on slowing that down.
Us; in short:
We’re young, ambitious, outgoing and very, very sociable.
The Company; in short:
ResponseiQ helps businesses to generate more revenue by increasing inbound phone calls and speeding up response times. 50% of people who trial it sign up and nobody leaves.
The Office; in short:
It’s in Angel, it’s brand new, we have a pool table, and there’s free booze on a Thursday.
Oh, and we offer unlimited holiday days.
Sound interesting? Ok, keep reading.
CVs are boring, but you probably spent a long-time formatting and spell-checking yours (especially in your role), so we will read it. But what we really want to see from you is a tailored covering letter.
Read the full description below and send us something to catch our eyes, we don’t want some copy-and-paste rubbish that’s gone to 20 other people today, nor do we need an essay on how your trip to Thailand opened your eyes to how the world works and how that’s made you realise how important tech start-up companies are. Give us something interesting about you and why you want this job.
You; in full:
You’re confident, smart and organised… but not boring, never boring.
You can’t be afraid of getting on the phone and making noise in the office, you’re a hard worker who has tenacity and enthusiasm for; 1. making money and 2. seeing a business grow because of what you have done. You don’t need to care about tech but you do need to have a passion for being successful, your role is going to have a lot of scope for growth and if you’re good, you could be making a lot of money, as well as having your own team under you in the future. You need to be able to think on your feet without getting flustered and have a lot of ambition.
You’re sociable, outgoing and don’t shy away from a good night out if one is on the cards.
If you’ve got sales experience then great, but that’s not a deal breaker.
Us; in full:
We’ve already begun building a great sales team who make it fun being in the office, so we’re looking to add to that.
Scott and I are both in our 20s and come from a background, working in large companies and, as a result, hate everything and anything that even comes close to representing corporate working environments.
We were mates before we started working together and are looking for people who fit in well socially, just as much as they can do the job. We very much operate a “work hard, play hard” ethos.
We’re in the early days but both have massive ambitions for this company and will do what it takes to get it to where we want it to go, which is why we need a strong team to support us.
I’m Sam and am the Head of Sales & Development. I have over 10 years experience in new business sales, including extensive training and management experience.
Scott is the Founder & CEO and comes from a financial background. He left the corporate world to start ResponseiQ and is an incredibly hard worker, leading by example.
Whilst we’re currently a small (but rapidly expanding) team, we’re part of a larger portfolio of tech start-ups in RocketSpace, a co-working space, which we fully use to our advantage on both a personal and professional level.
The Company; in full:
We’re a sales acceleration and conversion optimisation company that is focussed on helping our customers to generate more revenue than they’re able to without us, by getting them more phone calls.
Our easy-to-install widget tracks user behaviour and offers free call-backs, to our clients’ potential customers, in under 27-seconds, increasing the conversion rate of visitor-to-call by up to 60%.
“ResponseiQ removes all worldwide communication barriers allowing visitors from anywhere in the world to speak to you, for free, at any time during your working day. Alternatively, they can simply schedule a suitable time and date for you to call them back; ResponseiQ will alert and connect you at their chosen time, ensuring you never miss a callback request again.”
We’re financially backed by Fuel Ventures and have just raised a significant amount of money as part of our second round of investment, giving you the opportunity to be a part of a fast-growing tech startup.
The Job; in full:
As our Talent Acquisition Executive, you will be an integral part of ResponseiQ’s growth. This is a supported role but you will be working autonomously and will have complete freedom to make the role yours.
We’ll need you spending most of your time head-hunting exciting, new, candidates who would be a great fit for the ResponseiQ team, as well as filtering through applications coming through the job ads. You’ll be conducting the initial phone interviews as well as sitting in on the face-to-face stages. Once a candidate has been placed you will be collecting references and making the onboarding process nice and smooth with the various documentation needed.
The End. As I mentioned above, send me something tailored and unique. The hiring process can be really boring, so please help me out a bit.
