The job:

We are looking for an individual to work closely with our Chief Technical Officer to manage the new acquisitions process from engagement, onboarding onto our site and all after-care of the locations. Location Works has created a bespoke CRM system called sumeru that manages all staff, client and location interactions.

The system has been developed over a number of years and has had enhancements as the requirements of the staff and industry have changed. We are now looking for an exceptional individual to undertake the following:

  • User testing on all the front and back end systems to understand the user journeys, of internal and external individuals
  • Work specifically on the Locations Upload processing to streamline the process and support with the upload of new locations onto the system
  • Manage location owner relationships and keep them informed of the progress of their uploads onto our system
  • Offer responsive solutions to some aspects of the company's web presence
  • Develop system enhancements alongside the CTO

Who we are looking for:

  • An excellent communicator
  • Comfortable working with new systems and processes
  • Experience of working in a fast paced environment
  • Able to identify and implement process change
  • The ability to work independently, with the support of the CTO
  • A can-do attitude! We are a small company and that means getting involved in all aspects of the business

In return we can offer you:

  • A chance to work for an exciting, growing organisation where you can make a real difference
  • Generous annual leave entitlement
  • A fantastic team based across the UK and India
  • And maybe the chance to go on set for a TV/Film production!
