We’re Recruiting – Hub Manager in Tunbridge Wells

We are looking for a hard-working, passionate, and upbeat person to join our fantastic team at Town Square Spaces. TownSq are a B Corp who support freelancers, new company directors and aspiring entrepreneurs in starting-up, raising investment and growing their businesses. We do this through providing spaces, business support and helping with admin.

Opening later this year, TownSq are working in collaboration with Tunbridge Wells Borough Council to transform the Town Hall into a collaborative, flexible and innovative workspace. The role of the Hub General Manager will be to build a strong entrepreneurial community within the space which can integrate into the wider ecosystem, bringing benefit to people, places and communities across Tunbridge Wells and beyond.

We are looking for someone who is confident and competent in running the business from top to bottom, with entrepreneurial flair and a drive to create something very special.

The main responsibilities of the role are:

– Meeting and reporting on targets for space occupancy and membership.

– Working effectively within operational budgets.

– Organising business focussed events.

– Developing and maintaining stakeholder networks, including working in close partnership with Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.

– Day-to-day running of a grade II listed building.

You will be obsessed with creating inclusive, welcoming and comfortable spaces for people to gather, work and collaborate. You will have a keen eye for detail, a nose for customer service and be a natural host. You will also get excited about creating and implementing ideas and campaigns to get people involved with the space. You will be the sort of person who is first in the space to get the coffee on and last out offering umbrellas out if its raining.

You might not know it all yet, but you will have a thirst for knowledge and be open to learning all about how to support early-stage entrepreneurs to grow and develop, and the international trends across the global start-up world.

There is no traditional career path to this role, and no pre-requisite qualifications – you may have been involved in enterprise support, you may have trained in hospitality, you may be an estate agent, or a lawyer who fancies a change – attitude is key for us. If you are willing to think as an entrepreneur thinks, you are already at an advantage. Having experience in the commercial operations of a building and a good understanding of Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas would be advantageous but not essential.

The salary for this post will be between £26,000 – £32,000 and the role is a full-time position. Town Square is a B Corp, a Living Wage Employer, and a Committed to Equality accredited organisation: we are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community within both our team, and our membership community.

To apply, you will need to email us your CV, and a slide deck about yourself (be creative!) by no later than Sunday 23rd July at 5pm.
