We’re looking for two amazing people to join our team – could it be you?
Despite what people might think, Make it British is run by a very, very small team.
Considering that we run a large trade show visited by 5,000 people, conferences for over 200, and a busy online portal with over 125,000 unique visitors a month, there’s still only full-time in the business making this happen (me, the founder), plus a team of freelancers and specialists who work on an as-needed basis.
However, I want Make it British to pride itself on offering amazing support to our members and exhibitors, as well as producing the very best content about making in the UK and buying British that we can.
So I need more people to join the team!
We’re currently looking for two people to join us on a part-time basis working remotely (in the UK obviously!)
Read on for more information about the two people that we’re looking for, and to find out how to apply…
We are looking for a Membership Co-ordinator to work remotely on a part-time basis to look after and support all of our lovely Make it British members.
This person will have responsibility for supporting and retaining current members as well as developing ideas to enlist new members.
This is a customer-facing role for someone who enjoys building relationships with people and loves great product – because you’re going to see a lot of it from our members!
You’ll need to be able to work under your own steam, and be super-organised, and the sort of person who loves using systems and creating processes. Experience of using a CRM system and other digital tools would be very useful too.

Event Sales Executive
Make it British Live! is a two day business to business trade show and conference for the fashion and textiles sector held at The Old Truman Brewery in London.
We are looking for someone who enjoys selling to help with following up leads and closing sales for exhibition stands, sponsorship and advertising for the event in May 2018. This is predominantly a telesales role but it’s not cold-calling!
This is a fixed term position for three months with the flexibility of working from home with an immediate start. Ideally you’ll have previous experience working on event sales, but what you really need is great enthusiasm and a wonderful telephone manner 🙂
To find out more about the sales role click here and we’ll email you details.
If you know someone that might be interested in either of these roles please share this article. We’re looking to fill the positions by the beginning of March 2018.
