Job Description

You’ve learned all about the world of business – perhaps through your degree and more importantly, you are interested in a role where you can put this theory into practice! If that sounds like you, we’ve got an exciting new role you might like:

You’ll be known as our Operations Executive, here at the heart of BiGDUG.

What you’ll be doing

With ambitious growth plans and a thriving business, this is a great place to develop your skills. We’re the first choice for storage and shelving solutions, and we have big things in the pipeline. As an Operations Executive, you’ll work in a busy, fast-paced office, getting a brilliant insight into the business. You’ll see how BiGDUG works and which areas interest you most – the ideal way to plan your future. At the same time, you’ll be honing your talents through a wide range of tasks. The goal is to keep our office running like clockwork and to support out teams with administration.

In practice, that means managing paperwork, contracts, filing and data administration. You’ll also take minutes in meetings and deal with staff travel and accommodation bookings. If the office is low on stationery, you’ll take note and order supplies. It’s all about being proactive and taking the initiative. Reporting directly into the Head of HR, you will be the ‘go to’ person for office management queries. We’ll also be looking to you to support our very own MD. You’ll manage the diary, deal with correspondence and help to arrange BiGDUG events.

What you’ll bring

This is just a taste of a varied and interesting role. You’ll get all kinds of other responsibilities, including Finance admin. That means you need to be the kind of person who’s ready and willing to learn. A Business degree is ideal but it’s your attitude that counts. Bright and motivated, you’ll always be ready to help. With this approach, you’ll be a hit with the team and an asset to the business. IT skills are a must and should include Powerpoint and Excel. Other than that… if you’ve got a good sense of humour you’ll fit right in!

What’s in it for you

We want you to love working here, so as well as a supportive environment, we are offering a competitive salary with the potential to earn great bonus, a contributory pension scheme and holiday allowance.

And to seal the deal, in return for your dedication and hard work - not only do we offer an informal and fun working environment, but when the sun shines we get the BBQ out!!

Salary: £17,000 base, plus excellent bonus scheme, payable monthly
