We’re looking for someone to turn ideas and strategy into execution, creating the blueprint for our business in environments where everything is being built from the ground up.

- Drive day to day operations and thrive off making the business run smoother: You will work with the Operations Strategy Director in areas including goal setting exercises, developing and optimizing business reporting mechanisms, and leading communications across the senior management team.
- Turn insights into action: Develop strategic insights from our data and translate these insights into concrete implementation plans.
- Build great stakeholder relationships: Lead x-functional projects with each of the Heads of / Directors for key functions to run the most efficient projects end-to-end. By the end of 6 months you will have received clear feedback that you are seen as an efficient leader of teams.
- Be a founding member of the team: The Operations Strategy team is brand new and growing, so you will be joining at a pivotal moment with an opportunity and expectation to have an impact in building our processes as we scale
