About the Company

Hi, we’re FutureX! 

We’re on a mission to make the world a better place through business. 

We host some of the world’s leading entrepreneurship events and have built a thriving membership community for founders and business leaders seeking a more sustainable, socially conscious global economy.

We work with global brands, local legends and innovative individuals.

We love creating and curating content designed to inform, educate, amuse and inspire. 

We practise what we preach. Our values guide our decision making and underpin everything we do. 

We want to change the world.

And we’d like you to join us!


 

The Role

You will play a key role in managing and growing the FutureX community. Our community of purpose-driven entrepreneurs and business leaders gain access to a network of like-minded peers, exclusive resources and toolkits, free entry to our events, and discounts from our partners. You will engage with the community, work to improve our offering, grow our membership, build partnerships and be an ambassador for our work. 

Working with and reporting to the Head of Operations, your responsibilities will involve:

  • Acting as the point of contact for the FutureX Community, to both members and external parties
  • Engagement with our members across multiple platforms – email, social media, slack, zoom etc.
  • Developing lead generation and promotional strategies
  • Identifying and contacting potential new members
  • Identifying and contacting potential partners and sponsors
  • Generating new ideas for what we offer members
  • Identifying and sharing relevant content with members – news, resources, opportunities etc
  • Managing the Ambassador and Scout programmes
  • Reporting, statistics
  • Acting as a brand ambassador for FutureX
  • Sharing success stories and testimonials from our community


 

How we work

Our team is predominantly based in Edinburgh and we have been working remotely since March 2020. We do morning check-ins and our meetings over zoom and communicate throughout the day on slack. We also regularly use google workspace, notion, canva, mailchimp, typeform, wordpress, strikingly, mighty networks and most major social media platforms. If you have prior knowledge of any of these, great! If not, we can get you up to speed very quickly, so don’t worry.  

We believe in providing a safe space for our team to grow and flourish. All ideas, thoughts and opinions are welcomed as we work collaboratively. We generally work a four-day week and have a flexible working policy. We believe this allows people greater ownership of productivity and provides a greater sense of accomplishment and quality of life.
