Office Manager

A full-time, permanent position
Based on-site at our central Cambridge office.

Are you a people person who loves to organise and get things done?

Join us as Office Manager, and help keep our processes running, our office environment welcoming and our teams happy!

What’s involved?

Some of the role’s core responsibilities include:

  • Office management
  • Answering phones and managing post
  • Maintaining office attendance logs
  • Monitoring and ordering office supplies (stationery, kitchen items, etc.)
  • Liaising with the finance team on cost tracking and purchase orders
  • Proactively bringing forward ideas to improve our office space
  • Organising monthly birthday celebrations
  • Ordering lunches for on-site meetings
  • Organising events – company annual events, seasonal initiatives, etc.
  • Assisting the people team with HR and talent-related tasks, including onboarding, posting job adverts and policy updates.

Facilities management:

  • Managing suppliers (cleaners, stationery & office equipment suppliers, etc.) and their contracts to maintain office upkeep
  • Project management of office improvement tasks
  • Maintaining building maintenance logs
  • Liaising with maintenance contractors, negotiating prices and overseeing work delivery
  • Ensuring health & safety compliance, including running the annual audit with our consultant
  • Undertaking emergency light testing, legionella testing, fire drills and other safety checks regularly.

Are you a good match for this role?

If you’re a helpful and organised person, with previous office management and administration experience, this is the role for you.

You’ll need to be happy working with our team in the office, but also capable of working independently during quieter periods to get things done. You’ll need a flexible approach to problem-solving too – able to take on new challenges and tasks as they arise. This is a role with lots of variety, with no two days the same.

You might also have experience of:

  • Google suite and Microsoft Office
  • Supplier and contract management for cleaners, maintenance and security companies
  • General office management and administration activity
  • Coordinating events and people & culture initiatives
  • Recruitment administration
  • Being a first aider and fire marshall

Who you’ll work with

Everyone! But you will work especially closely with IT, our finance team and our head of people on IT equipment, suppliers contracts and general administration.

Opportunities to grow

There’s no shortage of areas and opportunities to get stuck into. You’ll have the chance to broaden your experience with contract management, event organisation, environmental and wellness initiatives.

Be yourself

We want to build a fair, respectful and welcoming company, where everyone feels at home. That means taking a long-term approach to equality, diversity and inclusion – not treating it as a tickbox exercise.

With the help of our EDI group, we’re working to make every aspect of the business – including recruitment – fair, respectful and inclusive.
