Gander is hiring

Business Growth Associate

You will be working for Gander as Business Growth Associate

What is Gander?

Gander is an early stage startup business that turns last minute overstock into an opportunity for both local businesses and nearby consumers. We’re trying to change current behaviour in order to help reduce the amount of waste in the economy using a process we all know and understand.

We are currently launching in Central London and have plans to expand to other areas very soon. Our focus right now is to partner with both well-known and independent food-based businesses and to grow our consumer user base.

That’s hopefully where you come in…

We’re looking for somebody who can sell ice to the Eskimo’s, who doesn’t take no for an answer and who will go the extra mile to get a positive outcome. Being a part of a young startup can be exciting but also challenging and we’re seeking someone who is self-motivated, thrives in a fast paced environment and enjoys being able to see the results of their work.

Your main task will be to reach out to the decision makers at each business to join the Gander platform. As an individual you will need to be enthusiastic, inventive and original in selling Gander to a brand as the new must-have tool in retail. In conjunction with this, you will also be assisting in growing the consumer user base. This role would suit a recent university graduate, comfortable with talking with a wide variety of people and be able to manage a team of student-based ambassadors.

This is a great opportunity to get involved working from an early stage in an ambitious business, where your input can have an immediate effect. Like with all startups, you'll be getting your hands dirty working on a wide range of tasks and will need to hustle in order to get results. If this sounds like something you're up for, then there’s no time like the present to apply!

You should have...

  • Some level of sales experience
  • An entrepreneurial background
  • Excellent written and communication skills
  • Excellent organisational and analytical skills
  • Strong knowledge and understanding of social media

Nice to have…

  • Photoshop & Illustrator experience
  • Keynote or Powerpoint experience
  • Background in retail or hospitality sector

What we’re offering…

  • Competitive pay and commission structure
  • Potential equity opportunity dependent on results
  • Comfortable collaborative office space
  • Flexible holiday allocation

Please send a copy of your CV that includes a covering letter outlining the last successful sale you made and how you closed the deal. Also include at least two companies that you admire for their user growth strategy.

*This position is for an immediate start*

Who We Are Looking For

We are looking for somebody with an entrepreneurial outlook on life. You should be confident in speaking with new people and have a creative approach to marketing new products and services. We require somebody with a 'self starter' attitude, who can use their intuition to make decisions that will ultimately result in onboarding new users and businesses

Photoshop, Illustrator experience would be an advantage but not a prerequisite.

Since we are in the early stages of a live product, we want you to be a part of the shaping of what the product can become. This is a great opportunity to have a hands on role with something live and to help expand your horizons.
