This Position Is Not Right For You If You Are...
We’ve told you what we are looking for to fill this role. But it’s equally important to tell you what we’re NOT looking for...including:
Someone who wants to be an entrepreneur and run their own business. All our team members are “intrapreneurs.” You’ll have the freedom and flexibility to love what you do and be the best at your role, but if you want to run your own company in the near future then we are not for you.
Someone looking for a 9 to 5, Monday to Friday job. This is not for someone who lives for the weekends and hates Mondays. We’re a mission-driven company who, at the core, is about changing the lives and businesses of everyone who comes into contact with our company. Sometimes you might have to work late, sometimes you may have to work a Saturday, sometimes you’ll get the afternoon off. If we have a project and work needs to get done, then we’re all hands on deck. If this doesn’t sound exciting, then this role and our organization is not for you.
Someone who hasn’t read a business or marketing book or listened to a podcast or webinar in the last month. A passion for business and personal growth is essential and we all strive for personal and professional growth at every turn.
This Role Is Perfect For You If You...
- Love a challenge and are resourceful when it comes to figuring things out and making them happen.
- Can work alone and don’t need your hand held every step of the way.
- Have great attention to detail and can pull multiple pieces of a puzzle together (team and tasks).
- Can work under pressure where you might have three projects on the go with tight deadlines.
- Have exceptional communication skills when it comes to dealing with team members and customers.
- Know how to delegate tasks even if you could do them yourself.
- Have a can-do attitude. “That’s not in my job description” is a line we never use.
- Embrace every part of the business with energy and passion.
- Are super organised but can move quickly to ensure things get done effectively and efficiently.
- Are technology savvy.
If you check all of those boxes, go ahead and apply! We can’t wait to review your application and potentially work with you!
