We’re looking to make a key hire to give a huge boost to our online presence. We’ve been deliberately cautious about our digital activities to date, focusing our energies and efforts on simply baking great cookies. But we’re now ready to take a leap forward, with the ambition of being seen as an online innovator in our market within two years.

We want to develop our activity on social media, improve our eCommerce website to grow our delivery business and establish a mobile presence to make it easier for our customers to enjoy our cookies either in our shops or at home.

You’ll be reporting directly to the CEO, with mentoring from an external advisor with over ten years’ experience in all things digital. You’ll be given plenty of coaching and support, but will need to be resourceful and entrepreneurial to be successful.

We start from a strong base: we’ve gathered almost 20,000 Likes on Facebook in spite of our limited activity and think there’s a huge opportunity to grow this number and engage with fans of the business. We’ve been delivering boxes of cookies for a few years, but know that there’s huge scope for improvement.

We think this is an incredible opportunity to help shape an iconic brand’s online presence, and are looking for someone who is talented, entrepreneurial and passionate to join the Ben’s team.

Who we’re looking for

We want an incredibly smart, energetic and hard-working graduate with a passion for entrepreneurship who’s a fan of Ben’s Cookies.

  • Well-educated: You’ll have either a 2:1 or first-class degree from a leading university
  • Creative and entrepreneurial: you’ll have demonstrated some entrepreneurial spark - started something, made something, organised something.
  • Structured, numerate and analytical: your creativity is guided by a reflex to break problems down into smaller parts, and an instinct to use numbers to help guide your decisions.
  • Well-written: Impeccable spelling and grammar is a given; your covering letter will stand out from those of the other applicants.
  • Active in onilne social media: - you’re probably an active tweeter,  perhaps have a blog and will already have signed up to Vine, if only to check it out. Know a little HTML? Even better.
  • Passionate, ideally with a soft spot for Ben’s cookies: You’re enthusiastic by nature; we’re sure there’s a fan of Ben’s out there who’s perfect for this job.
