Chief of Office

Job description

Do you get energy from helping others succeed? Are you the bringer of sunshine in a work environment? Do you enjoy doing a lot of different things in a day? If so, we need you!

About LevelUp

We are a team of smart, curious and slightly obsessed talent acquisition experts. We work for Startups & Scale-ups, mostly in-office, to help them find, attract and hire the best tech people in the world.

We turn Startups and Scale-ups into Hiring Machines, as we believe they are the best places to innovate, to grow, and to have fun.
We work hard, and we celebrate failures. Because that’s the moment we know we’ve learned the most.

The mission

Take on the challenge of being our very own CFO, HR and Office manager and helping the rest of the team get the work done!

A day in the life:

Start your day with a big cup of coffee and quick catch up with the team. Perhaps you have an update for us on our IND status, or want to have a short brainstorm about the design for our Christmas cards we’re sending out to clients.

Mid-morning you find yourself taking on the financial responsibilities - speaking with our contact at Yuki to discuss changes to our account, setting up our salary run, and maybe sending out invoices to clients. Along the way, you notice that some of the team have run out of lunch cards, so you arrange new ones for them and also do a quick online order from Albert Heijn.

During lunch today, we’ve got a Lunch and Learn focused on 360 degree feedback. Since this is your baby, you give us a presentation and show us how to use the new tool. After enjoying some delicious pizza and poke bowls (and a game or two of ping-pong), it’s back to work - this time focusing on office management and HR. We’ve got a bit of a sound-proofing challenge which you’ve taken on, and you start looking at different options to make our meeting room sound proof but still cosy.

Coming up to the end of the day, you make the final reservations for our upcoming team event and coordinate with the B.Amsterdam building on the changes to the car-park system, before relaxing with some beers and colleague.

What's unique about the role

  • Involved - LevelUp Ventures is all about transparency and working as a team. You will be at heart of the organisation and have a core impact in making sure everyone can do their jobs successfully
  • Freedom - We’re a growing company with a big vision. And we want you to have that vision as well - if you see some opportunity to take on a new project or role, we want you to go for it!

  • Variety - your learning curve will be steep because every day is different. You will be challenged to learn and develop your skills, and we hope you share your knowledge with us. Your role will have different facets, although focused on 3 main areas, you will be able to learn all about finance; recruiting; project management; HR and much more!

  • Innovation - we love to try, experiment and continuously improve ourselves. Part of this is often testing various apps and bots. Do you know or enjoy finding new ways to automate (eg: HR and finance administration)? Awesome! Anything that makes the work for you (and team) more easy and fun!
