Trade Advocacy Manager

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 (Tripadvisor, Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.).

MyBuilder operates throughout the UK. Our bright and spacious office is located bang in the centre of Clerkenwell (the most interesting creative hotspot in London), with great surrounding areas of East London, including Shoreditch, Old Street and Angel! Nearest underground station is Farringdon. We enjoy shiny Apple products, excellent coffee, free lunches, lively banter and the most competitive office table tennis league in town (probably). Come join us!

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.

The Trade Advocacy Manager’s role will be to ensure that through effective communications, MyBuilder appeals to new and existing trade users alike. It’s a marketing role, but one that’s very much based on a two-way dynamic - listening intently to tradespeople and giving them what they need to help them succeed.
