A key member of the team has advised us they’re leaving to setup their own venture. So we’ve taken a moment to step back and think through how to deliver the actions needed to best help the startups we work with. We’ve decided that we need to structure things differently. So although personally it’s quite a sad moment it has enabled us to re-think how to operate and how we need to move forward.

So we won’t be replacing the current role, we’ll be creating TWO!!! brand new roles.

See roles below: please email your cv to hello@ministryofstartups.com ensuring to provide an outline as to why you want the job and why you think you’re best suited for the role (important):

Content creator / Community hub (November) (there is potential for this role to be part-time, as we’d consider job sharing):

You’re the face of the organisation, the welcome guide, the point of contact …and the outreach. Yes, you’ll wear a lot of hats at the Ministry, we’re a small team delivering the most affordable space we can for Startups.

We’ve got all the kit you could possibly want to achieve in this role… high end’ish still camera (nikon d850) and video cameras (GH5s), sound equipment, drones, 3d printer… high-spec laptops to edit.

  • Dealing with show rounds / walk-ins / telephone inquiries
  • Creating content for social media / website
  • PPC adwords, instagram
  • Updating letting platforms
  • Onboarding new members, welcome packs etc and generating repeating invoicing (xero)
  • Events / socials
  • Help coordinate the EastLDN writers syndicate

Everything about the Ministry is about our current members, future members and us as a team. So your role does not begin and end with creating content, welcoming new members or targeted growth, as collectively we are all responsible for making the Ministry a home for startups. So occasionally you’ll have to be the person who helps with building maintenance, or helps out with events, we do not each operate in departments of segregated responsibility, we have to operate as one team… we’re all in the same boat, we all row together. If one part of the Ministry has a leak then we’d all sink unless we fixed it together.

We are a small team, but that makes us agile and focused on action.

Guide salary £22,000 – £26,000

Part-time – Buildings Engineer: (November) 2.5 days per week.

The Ministry of Startups seeks a building maintenance professional. This is a hands-on-role whilst we grow the organisation together as a team.

Preferably someone with a trade background or really decent diy’er (not just a flat-pack-kit guru)

  • Electrician, Plumber, Carpenter, Gas Engineer etc

This is definitely not a “building manager / facilities / site manager” role, we need someone who enjoys the actual hands on fixing and maintaining aspects rather than just procuring someone else to come and do the job. You’ll also be someone that likes to build fun stuff too, for the community to enjoy (bouldering walls, garden furniture etc)

Obviously it goes without saying that if we need a qualified person to undertake a task then we have to bring someone in to do the job, but all the day to day maintenance and general projects, we should try and complete as a team.

We do however have a group of trades people we call on when we’re stretched, so don’t think you’re going to have to do everything if/when stretched. Its important to recognise these moments and call in the right help at the right time.

Everything about the Ministry is about our current members, future members and us as a team. So your role does not begin and end with maintaining and fixing our properties, collectively we are all responsible for making the Ministry a home for startups. So occasionally you’ll have to be the person who shows potential new members round, or helps out with events, we do not live in silos of segregated responsibility… we’re all in the same boat, we all row together.

We are a small team, it can feel hectic, but that makes us agile and focused on action.

Guide salary: £35,000-40,000 pro-rota (depending on trade and qualifications)
