About Petal Plan:
Petal Plan is an online flower gifting service that does things differently. We don't believe flowers should be chosen from an online catalogue. We believe that each bouquet should be created by an expert florist using only the freshest flowers available.
Customers simply pick a price, style and colour palette, or ask us to choose for them. We then give the brief to one of our handpicked, independent florists who will create the bouquet and arrange delivery to the recipient. Every bouquet is personalised and built using seasonal, fresh flowers.
We also realise that sometimes it can be difficult to be sure when or where to send someone flowers. We have created a unique flexible delivery option, allowing customers to let their recipient choose when to receive the flowers. We send the recipient a card letting them know they have been sent flowers and the recipient lets us know when and where to deliver them.
We are looking to bring on a CEO & Co-Founder to the team.
To date, we have been run by a General Manager, with support from our two non-operational founders. After establishing product/market fit and a clear strategy for growth, we are now looking for an experienced candidate to drive this.
The CEO will have an interest in flowers and be passionate about building the brand. The CEO will have complete autonomy to run the day to day operations. Both founders will have board seats, along with one of the current investors. The CEO will need to aggressively drive growth (including international expansion), build an amazing team to support them and continue to raise capital from external investors.
