How we work

The Joy of Business is a small virtual team, so you may be in Brighton where the founder Julia Chanteray is based, or anywhere in the world.  You might be returning to work after having a break to have children, want to work part-time while you travel, or want a steady contract to balance the rest of your freelancing work.

We’re committed to flexible working with a strong ethos of learning and development. You can arrange the hours you work to be balanced with the rest of your life, including working reduced hours during school holidays if required.

Who we’re looking for

I’m looking for someone who is:

  • Extremely well organised
  • Has a background in online marketing
  • Very tech-savvy and used to using software such as Drip, SEMRush, Google Tag Manager
  • Used to testing and tweaking online marketing and setting up processes
  • Able to keep the rest of the team on track with our missions
  • Thoughtful and proactive, able to make sure actions get done on time
  • Actively interested in our overall mission to support the owners of small businesses
  • Happy to work on your own and without supervision
  • Committed to learning new skills, ideas and software

This role is very varied, so on any particular day you might be:

  • Managing our projects in Todoist
  • Setting up automations in Drip
  • Compiling reports on recent campaigns, including Facebook split testing
  • Doing surveys and customer research
  • Researching academic articles for new content ideas
  • Organising resources on the website for course participants
  • Developing our keyword strategy
  • Learning new marketing techniques from our library of resources

As we are a small team, there will be some overlap with our talented Content Marketing Manager, Fiona Brennan, so we’d also expect you to be able to edit and proof content, upload content to the website and liaise with clients.

Practical details

Office hours are 10-6, Monday to Friday, UK time. The hours of work will be 18.5 hours per week, and these can be worked flexibly, although we’ll ask you to stipulate core hours you will be working during our office hours.  If you’re Brighton based, you may be working part of the time from Platform 9 in Hove, or you may be entirely virtual, checking in with me and the team by Zoom and email.

You have the option of applying for this as a salaried role where you need to be eligible to work in the UK/EU, or you can apply for this role as a self-employed contractor, so you’ll need to be actually self-employed with other clients. We are looking for one individual to take on this role, so no agencies or subcontracting.

Flexible working

We’re committed to flexible working with a strong ethos of learning and development. You can arrange the hours you work to be balanced with the rest of your life, including working reduced hours during school holidays if required.

But we also want someone who will love this job because they enjoy project management, tech and online marketing. And someone who is genuinely interested in our mission of supporting small businesses. Please do not apply just because you want flexible working.
