  • Overseeing the IT and AV systems
  • Maintaining studio supplies
  • Welcoming visitors and managing the company diary
  • Assisting the marketing team with implementing events and brand collaborations, including furniture and installation, invitations and guest-lists, food and drink, and AV
  • Setting up internal events such as yoga classes, film screenings and team lunches
  • Innovating new ideas aimed at optimising employee engagement

The successful candidate will be:

  • Conscientious and rigorously organised in everything they do

  • Someone who loves supporting a team
  • An individual who is excited by the prospect of making our office the best possible environment to work in
  • Comfortable carrying out both low-level and high-level tasks
  • Interested in architecture, design and interiors, with a sound aesthetic judgement
