WE’RE HIRING!

We’re looking for a Head of Operations, to start ASAP. It’s a really exciting time for the company, and this is a fantastic opportunity for someone smart, organised and ambitious…

ABOUT YOU…

You’re super smart and incredibly organised. You love to make things work. You don’t need (or want) your hand holding and you can take initiative.

You have the ability to see both projects and the brand from the short term day-to-day to the big, where are we going vision of things.

You like to ask ‘What if?’ You are not someone who deals in ‘shoulds’. You want to do a job which excites you, and where you can really see the impact you’re having on the growth of the business..

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING…

Running the business on a day-to-day basis. Suppliers, logistics, budgets, processes, contracts, data, systems – you’re the person who makes things run like clockwork. You speak Excel fluently (or Google Sheets!), know the key dates and love to keep track of a timeline.

Strategic, analytical, accurate – you have an eye for detail and love the numbers. You know the things we’ll need to have in place as we grow – you’re always one step ahead of the game. Liaising with our suppliers and warehouse and working with logistics are both key to ensuring that our products are always on time and the best they can possibly be, with customers who are 100% happy. Excellent communication skills are also a must.

This is a position with the opportunity to implement systems from the ground up – and you’ll have the autonomy to make it your own, with potential to build out a team as we grow.

If you have skills in another area too, that could be a bonus – such as marketing, business development, publishing, ecommerce, content, tech, for example.

THE BORING STUFF…

Salary? Flexible – depending on your experience. Location? Our offices are in Hove (about an hour from Victoria or London Bridge) but we’re happy to look at flexible working patterns – although this is a full time position. This isn’t a company where you need to be in the office every day at 9am – unless you want to be, of course! We want you to be able to work in a way that works for your life.

WHO WE ARE…

The Ampersand Book Co. We’re disrupting what reading means today and reconnecting people with real books and real experiences. Welcome to the reading revolution.

The challenge: people today want to read but CAN’T. Social media, Netflix, too much choice – reading RN is a challenge. We create products and experiences with books at their heart – updated for the context of today’s time and attention-poor consumer. We’ve launched two products so far (Books + Beer, Reading in Heels) but have BIG plans. Can we make people fall back in love with books? We’re going to do exactly that.

We’re going places – exciting ones – and pretty fast. Think 680% YOY growth. People want – and need – books to become more relevant for the world right now. Meet Ampersand: the reading revolution.
