The Nitty Gritty

Our offices are on Stormont Road, Battersea, SW11 5EN but, at the moment, we’re spending 2 days/week working from the office and 3 days/week working from home.

Role Models is only 7 years old so the team is relatively small but well-formed and great fun! We have recently closed a £915k funding round with a view to aggressive expansion both online and offline over the next few years, so there is lots of work and you will need to be up for a challenge.

We have 9 full-time employees and 4 outsourced part-time employees. As a result, you would have the opportunity to make a huge difference to the trajectory of this growing business and would be given significant responsibility.

As we are a small and exciting growth business, we pride ourselves on providing a seamless service to our clients. This will on occasion result in a need to communicate at weekends, whether with clients or other members of the team.

We’re also very proud to have been ranked in the ‘top 100 organisations to escape to’ in both 2019 and 2020!
