Growth Lead

A critical and creative role that will see you own the growth of Beam's crowdfunding platform, working directly with the Founder & CEO.

Beam is pioneering an incredibly impactful and scalable new model to support disadvantaged people into work.

Launched in late 2017 by an entrepreneur who was previously backed by investors in Facebook, Slack and Deliveroo, Beam is officially Best Tech for Good in Europe.

Today, people have made over 50,000 donations through Beam's platform. This growth has been achieved with zero marketing spend or hires in BD, growth or marketing. 

We want to bring on one person who's beyond excited at the prospect of growing over 50,000 donations to over 50 million.

Each donation will translate directly into helping the most disadvantaged people in the UK to get back on their feet and become financially independent.

This role reports directly to the Founder and CEO.
