What’s it like to work for Sorted Comms?

In the words of some of our existing team:

"Sorted Communications is brilliantly set up to accommodate a remote team. All the systems we use are so smooth, but there's also a great sense of being part of a team (not easy to achieve when we're all working remotely)."

"I love the variety of work and the great people I work with - both within the team and the clients. I also love that I'm able to plan my own days."

"What I love most about working for Sorted is the flexibility. It helps us maintain a good work-life balance and there is a real camaraderie within the team despite the fact that we all work remotely."

"The best thing about working for Sorted is that even though we're a remote company and never see each other outside of Zoom calls, there's still a real team spirit. I only joined the team a couple of months ago and I've felt so welcomed by everyone already."

"The best thing about working for Sorted is the variety of work - it's never boring!"

"I enjoy the flexibility and mindset of the business. It's refreshing to work with like-minded people."

"Everyone on the team is very friendly"

"The best thing about working for Sorted is being part of a team of fabulous individuals who make up a thriving business."

Your first weeks with us

  • During week 1 you’ll have intro calls with the CEO and ops manager to set you up on our systems, show you how to use them and discuss in more specific detail what you'll be doing and when.
  • You’ll also be given our team handbook and associated policy documents + time to read them and opportunity to ask questions
  • As quickly as possible you will start to take on regular and ad hoc tasks as they come up. Most tasks for this role are currently being done by the CEO or ops manager; both will gradually hand the tasks over to the Executive Assistant, providing training and guidance as needed.
  • From week 2, you'll join Monday morning stand-ups (via Zoom) at 10am London time with the CEO, ops manager, comms manager and comms/marketing assistant. This is a quick check-in and an opportunity to flag issues and ask questions. The calls usually last 15-30 minutes.
  • In the first week of every calendar month there are tasks to do with logging hours and producing client statements; you will be shown how to do these, and then asked to do it with supervision/support the first month.


HOW TO APPLY

  • This position will be closed as soon as we find the perfect match. So, make sure to read the description carefully and take your time to submit a high-quality application that stands out.
  • If you apply, we’ll respond promptly and keep you updated throughout the process.
  • As part of the hiring process, there will be the following steps:

1 - Click Apply and fill in the application form

2 - Record a short video to introduce yourself

3 - Shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete paid test tasks

4 - Final candidates will be invited to a video interview where we can get to know each other in more depth
