Part-Time Office Manager

Job type:Part-time, 7.5 hours per week (divided across at least 2 days)

Job location:Circus Lane, Edinburgh

Direct reports:None

We’re looking for a Part-Time Office Manager to join the Nile team.

Nile is a strategic design consultancy that uses design, research, and foresight to help businesses navigate the path to progress. We are a small, close-knit and very friendly bunch.

As our Office Manager, you will have overall responsibility for the smooth running of our Circus Lane office, as well as remote working arrangements for the team, plus a key role for the wellbeing of our staff and their cultural experience at Nile.

This will include duties such as organising couriers and suppliers, taking in deliveries and post, monitoring our stationery supplies and ordering as necessary, and ensuring meetings and events in the office go to plan.

You will also have some project support responsibilities which will flex up when the core aspects of the office management role are less required (such as during our annual team trip, or organising our Christmas Party).

Be sure to tell us a little about yourself, why you want to work at Nile, and the type of challenges you’re passionate about. Like a cover letter, but a little less formal.

We promise to get back to you. (P.S. No recruiters, please.)

We encourage applications from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, ages, gender identities, sexual orientations and all abilities. Nile cares deeply about building a better business that supports equality and diversity; not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes us stronger.

By the way – if you’re interested in this role or in Nile, but have a slightly different skillset or experiences to those listed above, please do still get in touch with Susie and talk it over. You never know, it might lead to something great.
