At x+why we are on a mission to change the way the world works for good. 

In short, we believe business should always be a force for good. So, let’s start by admitting that job adverts could be better. Way better. 

Be gone with long-winded adverts, complete with uninspiring lists of “responsibilities” and generic recruitment jargon. 

Have a read below and if this sounds like a position you would like to be considered for, then we’d love you to apply!

The bit about us:

Founded in 2019, by 3 incredibly motivated entrepreneurs whose mission was clear - business should be a force for good. And by good we mean; we consider people and planet as well as profit. We are very proud to be a certified B Corp!

We currently manage 400,000 sqft of hospitality focused co-working, event, and exclusive club spaces for over 3000 members. We operate across the UK, with offices in London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Milton Keynes with plans to launch more sites in 2024.  

The bit about you:

As the first (and last) person our members engage with each day, you will understand what exceptional service looks like, and how to achieve that. Your people skills will be through the roof amazing – you enjoy getting to know anyone and everyone and will be the first to put up your hand to help a colleague or member. You enjoy the buzz of a varied role where no two days are the same! While engaging with members on the front desk, you will also be supporting the Community Manager with meeting and event coordination, ordering supplies, liaising with caterers and assist with any ad hoc technical or facility issues. 

Why x+why? 

We want you to enjoy coming to work every day. Even on Mondays.

To make sure of this we will provide you with a phenomenal environment - think inspiring design, cutting edge tech, stunning views, great coffee, and lots and lots of plants! Plus, you’ll be part of our hugely supportive, collaborative team, who although take their members’ experience very seriously, also want to have a little fun along the way. 

What next?

Simply click on the Apply button below and upload your CV. 

It is essential to us that you bring your authentic self to work every single day, no matter your age, ethnicity, religion, citizenship, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, caring responsibilities, neurodiversity, or otherwise.

All applicants must have the right to work in the UK.
