  • Good level of articulacy and comfortable presenting within a partnerships, sales or account management setting

Both the Operations Executive and Talent Associate roles are exciting entry points into a career at Beam.

The Operations Executive role is a more internal-facing role, for people who would like their primary focus to be working with vulnerable people.

The Talent Associate is more an external-facing role, for people who would like their primary focus to be business development and sales.

If you'd like to be considered for both, you do not need to apply for both. Simply apply for the one you consider the best fit and mention you're open to both roles in your covering email and at interview.

Applications for the role are considered on a rolling basis.
