Operations Executive

The perfect entry point into a unique company that combines the excitement of working in a high-growth tech startup with the fulfilment of creating life-changing social impact.


Whoever you are reading this now, you’ve got one life. So do something that truly matters. 

As an Operations Executive, you’ll be doing some of the most impactful work anywhere: supporting people on life-changing journeys out of homelessness.

It’s not easy. Nothing worth doing ever is. But we take care of everyone who works here with everything from coaching to personal wellbeing budgets and pay highly competitively. 


The Job

After an intense training period, you’ll begin working with a growing number of homeless people: each one an individual with their own goals and challenges. 

You’ll need to understand the risks in their lives as you support them towards their goals using our pioneering in-house tech (it’s pretty awesome, honest).

As well as supporting each person, we’ll expect you to improve Beam as a whole, bringing ideas and the drive to improve our model and tech for everyone.

 

Sound like you?

We don’t need someone with experience of working with homeless or disadvantaged people. But we do need people who are passionate about supporting people and hungry to learn.

We don’t need you to come with a fancy degree or look or sound like anything but yourself. But we do need people who will bring their true, open self to their work.

We don’t need a statistician or an Excel whiz. But we do need people who value data and are motivated to hit KPIs around social impact.

We don’t need someone who lives and breathes tech. But we do need people who are excited by the possibilities of tech to transform lives at scale.

We don’t need someone who has experienced social problems or homelesness*. But we do need people with empathy for those who have.

You deserve to do something that matters in your life. 

And the many people you will meet and support at Beam deserve the same. 

*But we’d be chuffed to hear from you if that’s the case. Or if you’re from any minority or marginalised community. Also, if you’d like to chat to someone in the team doing a similar role before applying, drop us a note to [email protected]
