Last year, more than 40,000 freelancers found gigs through the platform and together they worked over 5.5 million hours. With a highly profitable business in the Netherlands (>10M EUR in annual profits), we’re now expanding internationally.

As a Sales City Launcher, you will be responsible for growing YoungOnes in the UK. You will need an entrepreneurial mindset to grow your city from scratch. You’ll be the GM for your city, responsible for both demand and supply and kickstarting the growth flywheel. You can expect to work both on high priority strategic projects as well as getting your hands dirty on a daily basis.

Your responsibilities will include onboarding businesses who can immediately use extra staff for temporary gigs and freelancers, working with HQ to develop a strategy to scale acquisition on both sides of the marketplace, taking on full sales responsibility for your city, forming relationships with local press, and experimenting with client acquisition tactics.

The ideal candidate should be proficient in both spoken and written communication in English, based in Birmingham, Edinburgh or Liverpool with frequent visits to our HQ in London, have at least 4 years of experience in a sales-related role, and be a born entrepreneur who likes working with people.

The salary for this role is approximately £65k, based on experience. We also offer a rewarding bonus structure, a high level of autonomy and ownership, and lots of opportunities for further growth and a steep career path. You will also be joining a mission-driven company that is empowering young people to work when and where they want to!
