GrantTree provides a financial boost to some of the UK’s most innovative start-ups and tech companies by managing government funding schemes.
We are growing rapidly, and need the help of two new team members with an eye for detail, a talent for clear and prompt communication, and an agile mind that can switch from task to task quickly.
Look no further for a crash-course in entrepreneurship.
You will focus on guiding clients through the many stages needed to file claims for funding.
This is only the base set of responsibilities. As in most small companies, everybody does a bit of everything. Tasks in addition to the day job allow you to earn quarterly pay rises, depending on performance.
Flexibility, common sense, a head for numbers, and excellent written and spoken communication skills are the attributes we’re looking for.
You will be emotionally intelligent, and able to build the strong relationships that make people feel confident about working with GrantTree.
The start-up world is small, so having the right attitude is crucial to helping us build and maintain our great reputation. We will prefer people with some history in client-relationship or account management, though it’s not a deal breaker if you haven’t. This is one of the few roles where you can gain a deep understanding of innovation in business.
More about us:
Founded by Daniel Tenner and Paulina Sygulska, GrantTree is a rapidly growing company whose team of women and men help UK technology companies secure funding without sacrificing equity.
The company deals primarily with R&D Tax Credits and Grants.
We believe in working healthy and productive hours. The best work is done by people who are happy and well rested – and we want the best work.
After a very profitable first year, and a second year that was four times more so, we are on track to turn over more than £1m in the third year.
** Edit: the section below is totally out of date! Please check our careers page if you’re curious how things work now! **
Pay starts at £18-22k/y depending on experience, but we enable you to increase this by £2k every three months if you meet the targets set for you.
But it’s not just about the money. This is an outstanding chance to learn entrepreneurship, build an extensive personal network of company founders and investors, and prove your business acumen.
How to apply:
This is a client-facing role, which will involve written, phone, and occasional in-person communication, so the application process mirrors these elements.
Start by writing a brief (500 words or so), clear cover email outlining why you wish to work with us, what you hope to achieve, what you expect from the role, and why you’re the best person for our team.
As part of the initial round, please also record a brief video (up to two mins) of yourself in person, talking about yourself, your interests, your passions. Attach a link (youtube, or something else – does not need to be public) so that we can watch it.
Finally, there is a text below that is rather poorly written. It contains a number of grammatical and spelling mistakes, as well as sentences that don’t make much sense or could be rephrased more strongly. Improve it as much as you can, and attach this corrected text to your email.
Please send applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re selected, we’ll give you a call, and then arrange an in-person interview with several members of the team.
We will aim to reply promptly to all applications.
The start date is as soon as possible after we find you!
