WANTED:
Project manager
The Freedom Collective

 

We’re looking for a process-driven Project Manager to join our small, ambitious team in ‘Shaa World’

About us:

The Freedom Collective is run by entrepreneur and #1 bestselling author Shaa Wasmund MBE and her business partner and content entrepreneur Matt Thomas.

Together we’re building a fast-growing community of incredible freedom-seeking business owners, hustling hard to build businesses they love and to create a life on their terms.

We run bootcamps, workshops and coaching programmes, as well as having a thriving online community and membership site and a range of digital learning products.

We’ve big plans for 2017 and aren’t short on opportunities or ambition.

We’ve zero desire to grow a large beast of a company with huge offices and lots of employees, though – we’ve been there and done that…

Instead we’ve a deliberately small team of supremely talented and lovely individuals, supported by a team of handpicked experts.

We work from Shaa’s garden office in Greenwich, from home when it makes sense and we also jet off to stunning sun-drenched private villas, when we run our overseas retreats. Not bad, huh?

About you:

Your job will be to bring structure and process to our fast-moving and often chaotic world. You’ll support the execution of our business plan by ensuring daily operations run efficiently and smoothly. It’ll be your job to keep us on track, ensure we all know what we’re doing, by when – and that we deliver.

You’ll work directly with us to understand and establish the critical factors likely to impact our growth, profitability and deliverability across all projects.

You’ll geek out over the key metrics, numbers and work closely with our finance team to ensure all projects are delivered on time, to budget and with maximum impact and profitability.

You’ll be proactive (not just responsive) in identifying and pre-empting potential risks and untapped opportunities and believe the key to being able spot such threats is supreme planning and organisation.

You’ll improve and drive our systems and processes to manage day-to-day activities and unify and motivate our team to deliver against our collective and individual objectives, responsibilities and targets.

You’ll be calm, unflappable and the kind of person who thrives on autonomy, structure and seeing a project or process deliver from end-to-end.

Ideally, you’ll be super motivated by helping people get paid to do the work they love and take control of their lives. You’ll be passionate about the entrepreneurial space and want to be part of creating exceptional events, products and community. It’ll help if you’re a big Facebook and social media user, too – it’s a huge part of our world.

We don’t mind if you’re a top notch grad or have 30 years’ experience – you’ve just got to have most of the below and a killer attitude.

  • Project manage delivery of all key projects
  • Lead on ensuring the smooth running of day-to-day activities
