The nitty gritty
You will be working 20 hours per week. This can be staggered over 3-5 days each week (Monday – Friday) and our standard day runs from 9am to 5pm. However, we know that sometimes scenarios crop up in both the business and in life which mean working flexibly, and we are open to and understanding of this.
Day-to-day you will be working most closely with our Marketing Manager with whom you will be planning and delivering campaign activity with.
This is definitely a great role for anyone looking for a higher purpose than just salary, the rewards come from seeing the people you work with develop in confidence, to seeing businesses becoming truly successful. Knowing that you have played a key part in that journey is just huge.
The good points

We think differently and every day you will be working with inspirational people with exciting and creative ideas. You will receive world-class training in entrepreneurial methodology and will operate in a continuous learning environment. In this phase of growth, you will be working in a small team. There is a level of autonomy that comes with the remote working, and this comes with a degree of flexibility in the role. We will rely on you to bring your thoughts and ideas to the table and be an integral part of the growth of Entrepreneurial Spark.
... and the bad
We won’t lie, if you are looking for a standard Monday – Friday, 9 – 5 role, or you don’t fancy working in a dynamic, flexible and fast paced early-stage business then this isn’t for you!
As a team we believe in growth, learning and development so you should be comfortable being uncomfortable. As a role model for the people, you work with and a key member of a small team, we’ll challenge you to up your game and be the best you can be. If you aren’t open to honest and frank conversations which will help you and the company grow, then this isn’t for you.
