MyBuilder.com helps homeowners find reliable tradespeople through the power of online reviews. We’re a market leader in the UK and are part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.)

The Role

MyBuider’s mission is to be the No.1 platform that great tradespeople turn to for quality jobs, helping them build long-lasting and successful businesses.

Attracting and retaining the very best tradespeople is key to our success, so communicating effectively with them is our top priority; to do this well, we need to understand what makes them tick - and make sure we give them what they need.

The Trade Advocacy Manager’s role will be to ensure that through effective communications, MyBuilder appeals to new and existing trade users alike.

The Trade Advocacy Manager will be key to making this happen, working closely with colleagues across the business to devise a brilliant trade engagement strategy and put it into action.
