We are an online marketplace that connects local 'bricks and mortar' businesses (primarily small independent retailers) with local shoppers and gives back to the local community through inbuilt charitable donations.
The marketplace has been developed as a result of helping a small local business transition from '100% bricks and mortar' to a hybrid online-offline model during COVID-19 lockdown. The impact it had on that business and everyone involved, including the local community, has been phenomenal. Now we are making that impact possible at scale.
Our mission is to empower local.
How you can help
We are seeking a designer who is on furlough and can inject some va-va-voom and love into our current marketplace / e-commerce designs….and/or our website. This is a voluntary role and could be contributed to in a number of ways.
For example, it could be pure design, to help us create a future vision that would be helpful for fundraising and could be implemented by a developer...or it could be a designer with the front end developer skills to design and implement.
Our site uses Wordpress with Astra Pro theme and has Elementor Pro installed.
The company is 100% self-funded by the founder. Investment is anticipated September 2020, thus further opportunities may be available in the founding team &/or via an offer of employment. Currently, it is an unpaid, voluntary role.
We'd love to connect and work with someone who appreciates our vision of empowering local businesses and having a massive positive impact on local communities. We'd also love to work with someone who may be interested in a more long-term role, possibly as one of the founding team....however we also understand and appreciate that you may have your own company to return to after furlough ends.
If you've got this far, thanks for reading and we'd love to hear from you.
