Operations Executive

at Goodlord in London

About us

We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, landlord and tenant. We knew generation rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution.

And we did. Like all startups it’s been a bit of a roller coaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with over 400 happy customers and exciting new products. We have ambitious plans for 2019 but with Mr William Reeve at the helm alongside co-founder Tom Mundy and a brilliant team of over 60 talented Goodlordians we are confident we’ll achieve these.

Our values guide our decisions, the way we work, our culture and the people we ask to join the team. We work hard, have fun and support each other. We’re not afraid to make mistakes (we’d never learn if we didn’t) and we’re always looking to challenge ourselves. Our style is collaboration based on honesty, friendship and respect. In everything we do we:

  • bring our whole selves to work
  • listen, learn and improve
  • are an open book
  • stand up and deliver
  • set the pace.

It’s an exciting time here at Goodlord. If you’re inspired by what we’re doing and share our values, we’d love to hear from you.

About the role

This is a role that focuses on process improvement, high levels of accuracy and ultimately anything and everything that supports the business success.
