Job opportunity - office manager

08. 11. 2022

Are you an office manager who wants to work in a flexible, supportive and creative environment?

Join the team at Clearbox.

We’re looking for an office manager to join our Belfast-based PR agency.

The permanent role will be flexible to your availability and could be two mornings a week or full-time – we’re happy to mould the position to the right candidate. The salary for this position will be around £25,000 p/a, pro rata.

You’ll be joining a company that cares, does things differently and offers an incredible benefits package. We work with lots of cool clients too.

What you will be doing

The role of the office manager is key to the smooth running of Clearbox to help fuel our continued growth. This role will suit someone who is ambitious, enjoys working in a culture of freedom and responsibility and is loyal and committed.

The office manager will oversee the running of our Belfast city centre office, help manage suppliers, assist with staff development and work alongside our accountants and bookkeeper to keep our finances in check. Especially when certain people in our team forget to process invoices and receipts…whoops…

The office manager will play a part in helping our young team to keep developing, something that is at the centre of everything we do. The office manager will also buy into our culture. We have a strongly defined culture here at Clearbox which is centred on the growth of our people and service to our clients. As times change and we evolve as a business and a team, our culture needs to grow to reflect that. This role will be key to this.

The office manager will also avail of our multiple training programmes, both internal and external. These can be both personally and professionally focused and will be managed through your bespoke career pathway.

The role also offers an exciting opportunity to work with our sister agency in Berlin, Laika, on staff exchange programmes and joint events. We had our summer party in Berlin this year, for example…

Who we are

Clearbox is an award-winning PR, CSR and social media agency. The company is nine years old, has a team of nine, and works with a wide range of local, national and global clients who are leaders in their field.

This includes Boundary Brewing, Hey Chick! and Plate Up.

Our innovative working practices, incredible clients, talented team, and ultra-modern working environment offer a strong platform for driven, ambitious people who aspire to be elite performers.

At our heart is a passion for creating pathways for young professionals in Northern Ireland to work with amazing clients and deliver meaningful communications programmes that deliver impact for the brands we work with. We’ve operated a successful graduate recruitment programme since we opened our doors. Earlier this year we launched Absolute Beginners, an apprenticeship programme for people who couldn’t or didn’t go into higher education.
