WHY THE JUNGLE COLLECTIVE?

The Jungle Collective is a young, agile and dynamic business with entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation in our DNA but we also believe that to go from good to great we need discipline, focus and an appetite for constant improvement. Every rock must be unturned and no improvement is too small. We want to delight in all we do.

We’ve enjoyed rapid growth, having become the Countries only National nursery but we are entering a maturing phase, something of a Jungle 2.0, consolidating this rapid expansion, growing and empowering the team with a priority for good decision making, built on better understanding, driven by curious questions and healthy debate. The nursery Industry is a huge market and The Jungle Collective has built a strong following but our goal is to be the best, to become a truly loved brand with a passionate and loyal following. Success is also dependent on the people, the talent, the culture and we aim to constantly increase our talent pool, to build a strong culture of excellence and to go from strength to strength. Jungle 2.0 includes a number of exciting new opportunities but also fine-tuning and getting back to basics.

By joining the Jungle Tribe you’ll have enormous influence on the future success and direction of the brand, in a challenging but rewarding role with many hats and never a dull moment. We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully it can be the start of something great!



THE ROLE

To date, The Jungle Collective has punched above its weight with the founders working tirelessly to drive the vision forward. But as the company has grown, the company has not kept up with recruiting talent or elevating talent in-house into more senior positions with the founders still bogged down by much of the day to day aspects of the business, often at the cost of the bigger picture. Alternatively, new projects have come at the cost to the basics.

To compliment this we are looking for a self motivated individual with great discipline to take the helm one step below the founders.



RESPONSIBILITIES

EVENTS

Managing the Sydney pop-up every 2nd week with a high level of attention to detail, following design guidelines, adhering to quality control. Event setups are intense, a lot of lifting and preparing. With time we may find a secondary manager so you can step away from the events and travel interstate more to conduct training and quality control for sales.
Visiting interstate sales, conducting training sessions and up holding consistency across cities.
Manager of managers- Touching base with other state managers, having weekly team meetings, setting KPIs and being available for emergencies on weekends.
HR + TEAM CULTURE

Preparing and approving staff rostering for sales.
Recruiting for new staffing when vacancies occur.
Training new managers to ensure they follow the brand guidelines and procedures.
Ensuring consistency across staffing and their knowledge base.
Setting goals for staff in various departments and maximising their outcomes.
OPERATIONS

Assist with day to day operations to enable smooth running events in every city.
Analysing data and setting sales forecasts for stores.
BUSINESS IMPROVEMENTS

Working closely with the founders, helping to offer great insights and will be an integral part of the decision making. Ideally, you will have some strengths that are complimentary to the founders, filling any of their weaknesses as this will help fill any voids in the business and help the company be more rounded. Financial insights and a nurturing, training/teaching disposition are two examples (of many!) that could be beneficial.
Setting sales goals and reviewing financials.
As a young, growing and dynamic business the role is limited only by your abilities and motivation, there will be dozens of exciting new projects and opportunities arising in the future where your creativity and entrepreneurship can shine

This job will be suited to you if you like a mix of working from home, running events and travelling interstate.
