DESCRIPTION

Live Better With is a soon-to-launch one-stop store for people with chronic diseases. Our aim is to offer all the products that a patient with a long-term condition, such as cancer, will need in order to help alleviate their symptoms and side effects – and so hopefully help improve their quality of life on a day-to-day basis.

With Live Better With launching imminently, we are looking for an operations intern to join us for an initial 3-month stint to work directly with the Founder on all aspects of day-to-day operations and to share the excitement of our first sales and our first customers!

+Understand the needs of our particular customer base
+Research and prioritise products for inclusion in the store
+Develop supplier relationships and negotiate supply terms
+Coordinate the end-to-end sourcing, supply and inventory logistics
+Manage day-to-day sales operations
+Be the first line of customer service
+Lend a hand with administrative tasks as they arise
+Attend meetings and events to promote our company and also learn more about the London start-up scene
+Understand the lean start up methodology and how it applies to customer development and rapid growth

REQUIREMENTS

You will be:

+Degree qualified, or working towards a Bachelors or Masters or MBA or other
+An excellent communicator - confident and articulate, whether in person, on the phone, or by email

+Available imminently and until the end of the year (initial 3-month stint)
