Business Development Executive

£27k-£30k + Bonus - Chesterfield & Remote

About hello social

Our office is in Chesterfield but we still take a hybrid approach. That’s right, a company in 2023 that actually isn’t 100% WFH since face time is important to us, our culture and the company we’re trying to build.


But let’s be real, we treat adults like adults – if you need to leave a bit early to pick your kid up or go to a specific gym class, that’s cool too ✌️


Our mission is to help entrepreneurs, founders and leaders turn their businesses into profitable assets. Coaching them through the best marketing strategies in the world that deliver real results.


We have clients on LinkedIn, TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram. We create personal branding websites, film and edit video campaigns and ghostwrite long-form content on behalf of some pretty cool people.


If you only want to do what's in the 'job description' or are not a fan of collaborating with your team - this isn't the place for you.


We need people who are fearless in taking the initiative to solve a problem in their first week, muck in to get something across the line for their department and be a real team player (1 team 1 dream vibes).


Working for a startup is like having your personal and professional growth on steroids. If you want to learn a whole host of new skills (some you didn't even realise you wanted to learn), fast-track your progression, and build out your dream role - you'll love it here, and we'd love to have you.
