Operations Manager

full-time Elder London

We are looking for an energetic and analytical individual to join our team at Elder working with the Community Operations team to uncover insights and deliver projects that help to deliver high-quality care to people in need.

Operations are at the heart of everything we do. As Operations Manager your work will be diverse, challenging and highly rewarding as we scale the business across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. As a member of the Community Ops team you will be diving into everything from supply quality, customer retention, carer logistics and beyond and you’ll be expected to roll your sleeves up and make an impact from day one.

We’re looking for someone with superior organisational skills who works well both alone and as part of a large team. This person will need to effectively prioritise and focus their attentions to deliver on a wide range of projects and processes but won’t be afraid to pivot where necessary.

About us

We are not your everyday startup -- We are a collection of values-driven people who care about providing a critical service to those in need while also utilising the latest tech and business insights. We are a high growth, vibrant technology company based in the heart of one of Europes hottest tech scenes, Shoreditch.

We have carefully crafted our team from the top tech companies (Ocado, Shazam, Google, IG Index, Just-Eat) to create a product that people actually need.

Elder.org transforms the lives of (primarily) the elderly and of their families by providing world-class live-in care. Elderly care is becoming a critical need both within the UK and Europe, and Elder.org is at the forefront of re-imaging the traditional care model. We work with professional, vetted carers to find the best match for our clients, ensuring that the choice to employ a live-in carer is exceptionally smooth, and providing help to both our clients and their families at the time when they need it the most.
