Be part of something special

We’re a startup with massive growth opportunities and super exciting technical challenges. Attest is backed by Episode 1 Ventures: the investors behind LoveFilm, Zoopla, Betfair, Shazam and many other great startups. We're building the world's most powerful consumer intelligence platform; aiming to permanently change an industry.

 

Complex technology, but with surprisingly simple and powerful interfaces. We help organisations (including companies and charities) and customers (real people) engage with each other, to create better products and services, explore ideas, reduce waste, and improve customer satisfaction.
 

Where we're at

 
We started Attest in April 2015, working with >30 companies to develop the products, with a lot of strong support and endorsements. This includes several FTSE 100 businesses, plus some really interesting SMEs. Users love our products. We’ve just been running MVP launches; we asked for 3 words about our initial versions, and here’s what users said: “Enjoyable easy trustworthy”, “Amazing wonderful perfect”, “Sensational, unique, fresh”, “Excitement, happiness, surprise”. Not words typically associated with research, which is how we achieve high engagement and quality results.
 

The Team

 
We have a very flat, non­-hierarchical and friendly team approach. You’ll be working with an experienced team, including two seasoned engineers who love what we do and have excellent complementary skills. Technical decisions are made with careful and quick consideration at Attest, so you can utilise the latest, most innovative technology; allowing you to always learn and progress. We have a fully working product, built on scalable and highly ­automated infrastructure; the platform is yours to build, the way you know is right, with freedom on the decisions / issues that support the direction you choose.

Current Opportunities

We’re looking for our very first Head of People

Attest is on a mission to ensure that all companies can put real consumers and data at the heart of every decision. In order to help achieve this on a global scale, we’re actively looking for our very first Head of People. This is a brand new role, and we’re all very excited.

As our first People person you’ll have a truly rare opportunity (along with full autonomy and support) to design and deliver an award winning employee experience with all of the Attest team. You’ll play a hugely significant role in realising our shared dreams and growth, across the company.

We have a great team - 24 currently - with a supercharged growth plan to reach 40+ by the end of 2018 (with internal/external recruitment support). Current strengths (team is highly skilled, passionate, open and self-starting), opportunities (vast commercial growth and personal development) and priorities (detailed below) are all very clear. What we’re missing is you.

We need your help, experience and expertise to reach the next level, as a company and as a team. Our team are very keen to support you, and are actively looking forward to working with you.


Four main priorities (...plus an important fifth):

We’ve recently conducted an open exercise with the entire team, to self-diagnose and prioritise the most important aspects for the Head of People role. From everyone, the priorities are:

  • Personal development - Building an entirely new quarterly goals/OKRs system, a brand new review system, plus individual/team training programs. Driving for ‘Personalised training for all’.
  • Diversity - Building a transparent system for inclusiveness across People processes, creating a leading people brand, and removing potential for bias. Driving for ‘Attest team = Nationally representative’ (gender, ethnicity, neuro-diversity, in addition to social diversity).
  • Transparency, Autonomy & Growth - Standardising our approaches to hiring and on-boarding. Building an open system for role development, recognition, and processes. Driving to win a ‘Best place to work’ award.
  • Benefits - Regular team celebrations, updates to standard benefits, creating an optional benefit add-on pool/system. Driving for ‘Attest internal NPS >70’ (our team are our greatest advocates).
  • …all things that you know, but we don’t (yet) - All the things from your experience that you’d bring, and all the things that uniquely you know are missing from our current needs/description (e.g., employee experience methodologies, new innovations, your personal ideas, and beyond).


Other priorities:

  • Personal engagement - Being a trusted advisor and coach for everyone in the team.
  • Prioritisation - Figuring out which People topics to invest in, and in which order.
  • Team development - Training others in best practices; hiring, leadership, feedback & beyond.
  • Diversity of experience - Becoming a true champion for diversity, and sharing approaches.
  • ...not included in this role: International office opening (initially led within commercial team), although you will certainly be involved across global People topics, teams, and systems.

  • Seeks to constantly improve self, team & company.
  • Creates consensus, but also speaks up when something’s not yet right.
  • Excited to be a major focal point in creating a distinctive high-growth business.
