[][] HEAD OF OPERATIONS [][]

at DAME in London

(₤50000 per year)

DAME believes we can live in a better more sustainable world if we use business as a force for good. We design innovative and beautiful products with the belief that better products today will lead to a better tomorrow. We need help making this vision happen.


We have just launched our flagship products, the world’s first reusable tampon applicator and DAME organic cotton biodegradable tampons. Each of these are as good for the planet as they are for women, and will drastically reduce the billions of single-use plastic applicators that are thrown away every year. It is the first step in our mission to turn the bathroom green.


We’re about to launch both direct to consumer and retail. We’ve got the product, the story and the sales pipeline. We now just need to make it happen.


We’re looking for someone who wants meaning in their work. You might be a City escapee wanting a challenge to head up the logistics, supply, and operations side of our business. This is a role that needs a commercial brain who’s ready to create financial forecasts, budgets, and ensure our cashflow is, well, flowing. You’re the multi-skilled, cool cucumber who’s going to create their own department, write the rulebook, and grow with us.


If you vibe lists – and we hope you do – here’s a few of your challenges:


ROLE INCLUDES – Forecasting & budgets – Stock & deliveries management – Visiting & co-ordinating our UK manufacturers to meet deadlines – Managing order fulfilment, assembly and all postal & delivery services – Managing wholesale orders, timing and delivery – Managing relationships and sales with major retailers – Keeping big retailers smiling, forging relationships and making sure DAME is on their shelves – Making sure our DAME customers know they’re being loved



Campsite credentials – Commercial training – Good head on your shoulders for thinking through and around problems – Not afraid to fail – in fact, good at failing, better at learning – Good communicator with exceptional English – Semi-sexy computer skills (Excel is a must) – Happy to speak your mind constructively – Autonomous – Love organising and detail, you’re the person to know what’s happening, when and where at all times – Sh*t hits the fan. No worries; you know that it’s how you fix things that’s the important bit


DAME is a small team, recently backed by seasoned investors. This will be a key time to join a company at an early stage and have the opportunity to make a real impact.


APPLICATION – Please send us your CV with a brief cover letter saying why you want to come and work for DAME and what you could bring to the role.
