We’re hiring – Growth Lead (Startup/Scaleups)

About Movemeon

We’re a fast-growing, tech-enabled, London scale-up company. 

We were founded by two McKinsey consultants with the simple aim of making it easier to discover great jobs and candidates Today, Movemeon is used by 50,000+ strategic and commercial professionals and 4,000 businesses (from the likes of Sky, Amazon and GSK to early-stage, VC-backed startups) in 100+ countries. 

Over the past year, we’ve gone through a period of rapid growth, and are looking to further scale the growth team.

The Start-up Growth Lead

The Start-up Growth Lead reports directly into our Head of Growth. 

You will be responsible for running one of the most exciting and fast growing areas of our business – building our network of start-up clients and helping them find brilliant people.

This is a highly entrepreneurial role, but you won’t be starting from scratch – we already work with hundreds of the most exciting household name start-ups in the UK and beyond (Bulb, Hellofresh, Funding Circle, Babylon Health and GoCardless to name a few) and need someone to lead further growth across this network.

You will manage and run your own P&L, and will be responsible for developing your strategy to accelerate growth across key accounts and develop new business. This role would suit someone looking to join a disruptive player in a traditional industry within a supportive, inclusive and fun environment. We really believe the sky’s the limit in terms of what we can achieve as a team, and we pride ourselves on giving each other space to grow in a variety of different directions both as professionals and as people.

Specifically you’ll be responsible for

  • Shaping and implementing strategies to drive growth across our Start-up/Scale network
  • Effectively managing a large portfolio of clients (1,000+ VC-backed start-ups) to maximise the value of our existing relationships
  • Driving new business development to expand the start-up network
  • Potential to build out a team

What we’re looking for

You need to have strong business awareness and an ability to identify opportunities. You have a friendly but professional manner and thrive off the thrill of the chase and the closing of the deal. Internally, you need to be a flexible team player, always mindful of the interdependencies between parts of our business and the need to cooperate with colleagues to achieve our shared goals. Specifically, we’re looking for:

  • 3+ years of experience (or equivalent) ideally in a start-up or B2B environment 
  • Strategic thinking – you will need to set the vision for the Startup/Scaleup network, determine what needs to happen, and run with it
  • A strong commercial mindset – you’re great at spotting opportunities and understanding what clients want; prior sales or recruitment experience is not needed
  • A natural organiser who is able to prioritise well
  • Strong communication (both verbal and written) – we work with a big range of clients so you will need to be able to adjust your communication style accordingly
  • A creative thinker who is looking for new days to improve day-to-day processes, as well as being proactive about sharing and implementing your ideas

What we offer

  • Generous package (on experience) plus quarterly bonuses, 5% pension, 27 days of holiday)
  • Freedom to take on responsibility quickly – as Movemeon grows, we’ll want you to grow with us. That includes an ability to quickly step up to manage more work streams, deliverables and potentially more people, too
  • A hardworking and friendly team – we’re a humble bunch of people who genuinely enjoy working together
  • Enhanced maternity and paternity leave
  • Great working flexibility, with a lot of opportunities to work from home and flexible working hours
  • Frequent lunches and events, and a monthly ‘fun’ budget for team staff;
  • Two company away trips a year (recently to places such as Granada, Barcelona and Cluj Napoca)
  • Excellent progression opportunities in a growing business
