Health Nutrition FINAL 500x500
The Venture: Health Nutrition

Health Nutrition is a global seller of health supplements, both direct to consumer and via marketplaces such as Amazon.

We have been selling products online since 2005 and operate in highly competitive markets such as weight loss and sport nutrition.

What will you be doing?

You’ll be given the keys to your very own business Health Nutrition Limited. Exciting, right?! You’ll adopt a team of talented marketers who, with your leadership, will run and grow a portfolio of ecommerce brands. As the name suggests, these brands target the health and wellness market – more specifically, people become the best versions of themselves.

As the Entrepreneur in Residence you will develop and oversee the vision and direction for Health Nutrition. This business focuses on traffic, conversion & community – driving traffic through partnerships, SEO and paid advertising. Traffic is vanity, conversions are sanity, so ensuring the maximum number of visitors purchase via awesome CRO, copy and design is just as important.

We sell primarily via our own ecommerce stores and also on the Amazon marketplace.

You will be taking full leadership of the company and you will be accountable for driving growth.

This is a ‘roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty’ type of role.

If you’re looking to just tell others what to do, this is NOT the role or company for you.

We value partnerships and you will also be working with partners including affiliates, influencers, ambassadors.

We are team shaped – supporting the team and the wider group is a crucial part of our culture. And we are radically inclusive – so we will expect you to lead in this way.

Just another day in the office

Your typical day will be:

  • Collaborating with our internal team and external partners to increase traffic and grow revenue
  • Working with the Health Nutrition team to motivate, prioritise and execute the backlog of work
  • Working with the Health Nutrition team to plan the roadmap of new work for future growth
  • Removing blockers and simplifying workflows, keeping it simple is one of our core values
  • Ensuring you fully understand the brand customers and building their experience and voice into everything you do
  • Experimenting fast and rewriting the rules to deliver results
  • Keeping a close eye on the financials to ensure you are growing profitability

This role might be the one for you if:

  • You have a real passion for entrepreneurship and thrive when leading your own projects
  • You have a self-driving and self-motivating personality
  • You love a challenge, you thrive on uncertainty and you can keep your cool in any given situation (because as you know, in business, shit can happen)
  • You can think outside the box and you have creativity by the bucket load
  • You have experience running teams with high growth and profitable results
  • You have a real interest in data, conversion rate optimisation and marketing results
  • You’ve sold products globally, directly to consumers previously.
  • You’ve had exposure to WordPress and HTML/CSS knowledge
  • You have the ability to constantly evolve, improve, adapt and innovate.
  • Your organisational, time management and juggling skills are on point – you’ll be managing multiple projects on a daily basis
  • You have excellent communication skills and the ability to motivate, inspire and influence those around you
  • You can work both independently and collaboratively within teams to achieve shared goals
  • You’re eager to learn new things and stay on top of current marketing trends
  • You’re not afraid of hard work and you’re ready to put the hours, blood, sweat and yes, maybe even tears, into something which in turn will help you achieve your ultimate ambitions

It’d also be cool (but not absolutely necessary) if...

  • You have worked in the supplement / health space previously
  • You have an MBA or equivalent business experience
  • You enjoy working in an agile, sprinting fashion and have had experience working in this way previously
  • You attend conferences, training and local meetups related to digital marketing, traffic and conversion

Here’s what you can expect:

We’re an ambitious, driven, and diverse bunch. We work hard and we love what we do. Our work is challenging, fulfilling, fun, and a very important part of our lives. If this sounds like you, we can offer you an exciting role in a friendly, innovative and dynamic business.

We’ll provide you with a flexible, supportive, non-hierarchical working environment where your contribution is encouraged and your voice will be heard. Where you can work your way, and be yourself. We’ll invest in your development, encourage your ideas and reward your efforts. It goes without saying that we work together, as one big team.

Here’s what you’ll get for showing up to work (and working hard, obvs):

  • Competitive salary and profit share arrangement
  • Flexible working hours
    25 days holiday (plus all bank holidays)
  • A working culture built to allow you to perform your best work yet!

#AllThePerks

  • Fully remote, fully flexible working (you will never be forced into a stuffy office)
  • Private healthcare insurance, contributions towards your personal gym membership (we’re all about being healthy and happy)
  • Quarterly team meet-ups, in a difference city each Quarter (workshops, socialising, team activities, festivals, conferences and much more)
  • Loyalty rewards for long service (happy anniversary!)
  • And a whole bunch more – we could go on but surely you’re already sold?

Opportunities without limitations

Our purpose is to create limitless opportunities. Want to become a millionaire? Sure thing! Want to develop your skills in a different direction? Done.

Whatever your ambitions, we have your back. If you are highly motivated and self driving, we will support you all the way.

Even better… Can you help create opportunities for other team members? If you can, you’ll be welcomed with open arms.

Interested?

First, make sure you agree with our core values. These are super important to us. If our values excite and inspire you and you reckon this is the place for you, get your skates on and apply now before someone else beats you to it.

Here’s how to apply:

  1. Email your CV to “andy.slack@healthnutrition.com” with the subject: “Health Nutrition Entrepreneur in Residence”, include a few paragraphs about yourself, for example, who are you? why do you love what you do? what do you enjoy doing outside of work?
  2. Sit back, chill out, and wait for us to get in touch.

And this is what’ll happen next:

You can expect to hear from us within two working days to let you know whether or not you’ve been invited to interview. And if you’ve read this far, you’ll know by now that we’re not your average company, so you won’t expect an average interview process. It’s totally unique, but thoroughly enjoyable – promise! 

*Locationless

Remote working? Sure, why not?!

We’ve got a growing bunch of remote workers based all over the world, so we’ll consider applications from anywhere. All we ask is:

  • Should you be invited, you will attend an interview either remotely or at a location suitable for both 
  • If you bag the job, you might be asked to spend your first two working weeks at a specific location (we’ll pay your travel and accommodation expenses) so we can get you properly onboarded and making friends with your fellow team members
  • You attend our “all-hands on deck” weeks – the location for these changes from quarter to quarter

What are “all hands” weeks? These are week-long events where team members near and far descend on a location and spend a week collaborating, socialising and having a good laugh. It’s pretty awesome.

We can achieve so much more in a much smaller time frame when we’re all together. And it’s super important for connecting with and building strong relationships with your teammates Especially for our remote workers – it’s kinda difficult to know someone through a screen, don’t you think? Meeting your teammates face to face on the reg is the best way to really get to know them.

Team members agree that all-hands weeks make us work better together! (plus, face-to-face banter is way better)

This is all really important to us, so it’s kinduv non-negotiable.

Recruitment agencies – sorry, but nope.
