Job Description

Come and build a new childcare system with us!

Koru Kids is a hugely ambitious company with one goal: to build the world’s best childcare service. We work towards a triple mission: help families – especially working mothers – juggle the hardest years of their life; help caregivers thrive in a difficult role; and give children a childhood full of everyday adventures. We are right at the start of our journey, having already transformed the landscape for after school care in London. Just two years in, we’ve delivered hundreds of thousands of hours of care, received over 40,000 applications to become a Koru Kids nanny and now train and deploy 150+ nannies each week. We’ve won lots of awards, including at the Startup Awards, the Nursery Awards, and the Impact Awards. Our founder Rachel was named ‘Inspirational Mother’ at the Inspiration Awards. Meanwhile our team builds seamless, comprehensive, beautiful software, and delivers high quality ongoing training and development for our nannies.

And we’re just getting started!

A few notes on the role:

– We’ll need someone who can take responsibility for all of growth: brand, online, offline, managing agencies, managing the inhouse marketing team, driving the metrics forward, strategy and execution

– Things we value highly: senior growth/marketing experience especially in a startup environment; any startup experience; a humble and down to earth character; very high IQ and EQ

– On timing, we are open to different things. If you’re wanting to start relatively soon that could work. Alternatively, we would also be open to the idea of someone starting in Q1 of 2019.

– We love employing parents, and we try to be as flexible as possible. It might be possible to do this role part time, depending on your level of experience.

What We're Building

Koru Kids (www.korukids.co.uk) is on a mission to improve childcare in London. It's desperately needed. Did you know that most families with children spend as much on childcare as they do on their mortgage? Or that the average cost of a nanny in Central London is £37,000? Did you know that nurseries aren't much cheaper than that, if you have two children? Did you know that many nurseries shut for summer holidays, and that if your child is sick they can't go for the next 48 hrs? If you're a parent, you probably knew all of that and more.

Koru Kids will solve these problems, starting with nanny share. We have 1500 families on our platform, and recently concluded a 3x oversubscribed funding round.
