Are you looking for a flexible career opportunity?

Due to rapid growth, our friendly team at Get Blogged are looking for an enthusiastic and meticulous individual on a contract basis, who can offer us admin (and some marketing) support.

A Little Bit About Get Blogged

A Little Bit About Get Blogged

Get Blogged is run by Lucy and Ben.

We’re two content marketing and SEO experts, who are very passionate about the direction in which Get Blogged’s Blogger Outreach Service is going.

We’re dedicated to achieving our goals; we want to become the best place for Brands to meet Bloggers.

We’re well on our way to achieving that, and we’ve got some exciting plans in place, starting early 2020.

Get Blogged is a blogger outreach service for brands and businesses that want to rank higher in search engines, get more traffic, sell products and services, and raise their brand awareness.

We nurture relationships with the best Bloggers to help brands and businesses achieve their goals.

Bloggers do that by advertising a brand’s services, by reviewing their products and by sharing their stories using many forms of communication.

Get Blogged is experiencing a period of growth, which (unsurprisingly) is creating more admin, so we’re now looking to delegate the very important admin tasks to the right person for the job.

We are both very busy parents (5 kids under 7 between us) and have a very down to earth, open and honest ‘ask us anything’ nature when it comes to business.

If you’re looking for a flexible career opportunity, and we sound like the type of people you’d like to work with, then we would like to hear from you.

You will naturally be dedicated, meticulous and passionate about startups, and you’ll understand our vision, excited to come along for the ride.

That’s Enough About Us; Here’s Some More About Our Flexible Career Opportunity…

Flexible Career Opportunity

Contract length

The contract is 90 days long, with regular reviews along the way.

Reviews are in place to make sure you’re happy with the role and workload, and will give us a chance to see if everything is going as well as it can be.

Location

We are keen to support the growing need for flexible career opportunities and working culture, so you will be working remotely (with your own desktop or laptop setup) from anywhere in the UK, but preferably in Hampshire, Berkshire or Surrey. 

Contact With The team

Ideally we’d like to meet in person once or twice a fortnight, but we’re willing to compromise on that for the right candidate.

Regular video skype calls are a must, so you’ll have to get out of bed at least an hour a week 😉

Hours

The role will be around 4 hours per day, Monday to Friday, between the hours of 9am and 3pm.

Payment

You will be expected to invoice us for your time on the last working day of each month for the month you just worked.

We’re also looking for someone who:

Is very friendly and enthusiastic

We need someone who can make a Blogger or Brand feel like nothing is too much trouble; someone who takes pleasure in delighting others.

Oh, but you’ll have to put up with Ben’s jokes and Lucy’s overuse of emojis.
