Elevator Pitch: The Company. Us. Runway East.

Did you want to grow up and work in a boring office? Us neither. At Runway East, we've been on a mission to destroy boring offices since 2014, in whatever size, shape and form they take. Since launching, we now have 9 buildings in London, Bristol and Brighton offering unique flexible office space for teams of 1 - 100 to work in, enjoying everything from dogs on demand to our famed Friday drinks trolley.

Our Runway East team enjoys a bunch of great benefits and unrivalled perks, from private healthcare to team trips abroad. We’ve also recently become a B Corp and think it’s important for our team to give a damn about its impact on the planet and its people.

Runway East has a strong brand, passionate customer base and most importantly, a product members genuinely love. Post-covid the way of working has been flipped upside down and the demand for flexibility is greater than ever. We’re ready to take full advantage of that.

Elevator Pitch: The Job. It’s a great job. We promise.

You’ll be the first point of contact for potential customers, delivering that all important first impression in the best way possible, and nurturing leads through to a tour booking. 

A multi-tasker with a ‘phone first’ approach and the ability to make a two line email sing with personality, you’ll also be dealing with our extensive broker network, helping them to understand and promote Runway East in the best way possible.

  • Managing the membership inbox, qualifying prospective leads and arranging tours for the Membership Managers.
  • Answering all inbound phone enquiries and walk-ins.

  • Phone and email nurturing all incoming leads.
  • Help to manage our CRM, collecting and recording customer data.
  • Additional support for Membership Managers as required.
