Who is ForestCar?
ForestCar is a car sharing service for airports. We offer car owners free airport parking in exchange for renting out their vehicles while theyre away (similar to "airbnb for cars"). We are called ‘ForestCar’ because we invest a share of our revenues to plant trees in tropical rainforests.
There are three times as many cars parked at airports than rental cars. If people were able to share their cars while they are away, we could eliminate the need for dedicated rental cars.
At ForestCar our goal is to become the greenest car sharing service on the planet. We don’t just want to disrupt the rental industry, we want to use sharing as a force for tackling climate change.
We believe ForestCar has the potential to create a revolution in car sharing. We are a passionate, driven, and open team trying to transform the rental industry, eliminate waste and protect the environment. If this sounds exciting, then we’d love to hear from you!
The task ahead
We launched at Manchester Airport in January 2019. We had >100 signups in our first 4 weeks. We need support staff and customer service reps to help us provide our customers in Manchester with a fantastic service.
As one of our first site-based employees, you will be helping to lay the foundations for how we operate our airport parking sites. Initially we expect the work-load to amount to around 2-3 days per week, with the option to expand to a full-time role with greater responsibility as ForestCar grows.
Given the early stage of our business, we are looking for someone who is hungry to solve customer problems, who enjoys the prospect of working in a startup, and who can have a high degree of flexibility and autonomy (both in terms of working hours and actual day-to-day responsibilities).
We are primarily looking for someone with relevant experience, but recognise that brilliant people come from different backgrounds. So if you think you have what it takes, please get in touch!
