Chief Operating Officer

Our client is an innovative tech for good company whose platform is making a positive impact on employee wellbeing and mental health. The founders are now looking for a Chief Operating Officer to join them in shaping and building the business.

In your role, you'll have the freedom to lead and innovate. You will be expected to develop an understanding of digital healthcare as it is and identify opportunities for disruption, therefore getting a privileged overview of the intersection between treatment and tech.

  • Manage and build the organisation’s brand identity
  • Play a full and collegiate role in the leadership and management of the business
  • Develop and deliver strategic objectives and plans
  • Communicate strategies, policies and procedures agreed by the Senior Management Team effectively to staff
  • Contribute to selection, recruitment, induction and review processes 
  • Deputise for the Chief Executive and other SMT members as appropriate and agreed
  • Oversee product development, marketing and communication plans; campaign delivery, management and support, business development, HR, cash flow management, and legal and compliance
  • Take ownership and work closely with our sales team

About you:

  • Enjoy working with a multidisciplinary team and sharing knowledge with your colleagues
  • Self-confident and battle-hardened, not afraid to step up to the plate
  • Seek to make a positive impact in society through your work

In return:

  • Highly competitive salary with possibility of shares
  • Excellent opportunity to progress your career to a CEO role
  • Opportunity to learn a new discipline: machine learning, data science, management, marketing, business development, etc. Our client is looking for learners with the potential for best-in-class!
