Mahalo is a food and drink distributor that curates the most exciting food & drink brands for the independent retail sector. Our customers are the loveliest people: owners of independent farm shops, modern grocers and delis across the country who all need help filling their shelves with great food and drink products.

We’re looking for someone energetic with a great, can-do attitude to join our close knit team and support our founder with administrative tasks and the team with day to day operations and marketing. This is a great opportunity for someone to get a deep understanding of all areas of the business and the chance to play a key role as part of a growing business.

We’re a female led, all female team based in London. Our offices are in Liverpool Street and we’re a hybrid team working from home for three days a week and going into the office twice a week, so you'll need to be able to commute in too.

Our website is:

What will you be doing?

  • Actively supporting our founder with administrative tasks related to sourcing new brands
  • Liaising with our suppliers to organise Lunch & Learns with our sales team and organising samples for customers
  • Notetaking and keeping minutes during meetings
  • Managing our customer database and ensuring that contact details are kept up to date
  • Organising team lunches and snacks and team related events
  • Supporting the marketing team with new projects

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for someone passionate about people, food and supporting independent businesses. If you’ve got a great entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for supporting independent grocers, delis and farm shops, we’d love to hear from you.

In particular, we’re looking for someone who is:

  • A proactive self starter, who loves being busy
  • A fast problem solver who thrives on getting things done
  • A team player who loves being part of a small team and playing an integral role within it
  • Tech savvy - comfortable using web apps, email and social media

Ideal but not essential:

  • Experience in working in the food & drink industry - maybe you’ve worked in a cafe, pub or deli
  • Experience working in fast paced customer-facing roles

What we’re offering

  • A chance to get a taste of all areas of the business and how it works
  • Full training in our systems and our unique sales process
  • Responsibility from day one to make your mark as part of a rapidly growing startup
  • Access to all Bread & Jam festivals, summits and socials - the largest community of food & drink producers in the UK
  • Tasting products from new and emerging food & drink brands
  • Team lunches and Meet The Supplier events

How to make your application stand out

  • Please send us your CV and cover letter, outlining why you'd be a great fit for the role. We're friendly and we're real and we're most interested in people who are being themselves. In particular, we love receiving applications from people who are genuinely interested in the company and what it does.
