It will also be a key champion of our values in our organisation, and look for ways to help us live them globally. This is a role for someone who enjoys the flexibility of being at the heart of a startup, and will be willing and happy to get their hands dirty and take on new aspects to their role as Winnow’s needs change.

Winnow’s office is based in trendy Old Street, and as we get back to the office we need an enthusiastic, organised and self-starting individual to manage the space, make sure it’s a welcoming space for visitors, help maintain and develop our culture and help us reach our own Net Zero ambitions.
