The Bakery is the most exciting business in London right now.

We are on a mission to make the world a more entrepreneurial place and, over the last five years, our brilliant team have designed and built a unique model and process which brings together the world’s biggest corporates with the best entrepreneurs and startups - to truly make innovation happen. We have continually iterated and refined our model to achieve something that no one else has: taking over 50 new technologies to market which we’ve done by partnering corporates with the best early stage startups. For the next stage of The Bakery journey we are building companies: connecting the best entrepreneurs with client problems to start new ventures.

We are seeking people with experience in a client-facing role in a creative, digital or innovation agency – so you’ll have experience analysing clients’ briefs, thinking about creative solutions and managing multiple projects. You will learn our process of how to find startups to solve challenges, take technology to trial in market and then scale-up, through collaborating with our global network of tech startups.

You’ll have the chance to work with some of the world’s biggest brands and, by developing and managing our global network of startups, meet a constant stream of the most talented early stage companies who are building amazing technology.

We are a small but fast-growing company, so this is a fantastic opportunity to get your sleeves rolled up and learn by doing – and grow with us!

Key responsibilities:

  • Work with the rest of the client services team to analyse clients’ briefs and identify territories and ideas for the solution
  • Use The Bakery’s network of entrepreneurs to find the right startup tech companies who could answer the brief
  • Research the ever-changing tech startup landscape, meeting and reporting on companies you’ve met with
  • Plan and manage timelines for your client projects
  • Project manage trials that go ahead between clients and startups
  • Assist with the planning and organisation of The Bakery events regarding the changing tech landscape
  • Becoming an expert on emerging tech via meeting with entrepreneurs building incredible things!
