Growth Manager
Auckland

With the opening of new spaces in Parnell, Takapuna and Ponsonby, BizDojo is on the hunt for a master of growth to join the Auckland team. We need a well-connected Growth Manager who can build relationships, both within our current community, and out in the wider network. You’ll be promoting all the wicked programmes and community events happening in our hood, and getting everyone excited about what’s happening in the Dojo.

You will have the energy, vision and desire to drive new business and grow our member base predominantly in Auckland but also across our national network. We need someone who can ideate, plan, develop and experiment to generate more wins for BizDojo, both internally and externally.

That's the brief on what we're looking for. But first, you need to know if you'll even like working with us. We think you will.

About Us

BizDojo has ramped up hard and fast to become a reputable name in New Zealand and we have a global reputation as one of the first 200 coworking spaces in the world. What sets us apart is that BizDojo isn't just a room full of desks - it's an innovative coworking and collaboration network with a passion for encouraging our diverse community of freelancers and businesses, and helping them grow.

Your Mission

So, you’ve got an impressive network of entrepreneurs, creatives and freelancers (respect!) and now is your chance to use it. It will be your mission to continue the growth and success of BizDojo Auckland, by helping our residents, their businesses and the BizDojo brand, to succeed.

Our success relies on both the success of our current residents as well as our ability to attract new peeps into the fold, and so understanding business needs is key. You’ll channel your hunger for growth, working like a human LinkedIn to build relevant connections between people, through social activities and personal introductions. Plus, in working with the Community Team, you’ll plan and execute activities that are suited to our residents’ needs and interests, and focus on engaging the wider community as well.

Your success will be measured by our residents’ happiness and retention rates along with your ability to entice exciting new people into our spaces, and thanks to the strong profile of BizDojo in the New Zealand market, your success is assured.

Moving forward, it will be your mission to extend the pipeline of partnerships and build the BizDojo brand, so that we can leverage the acquisition of new residents and future sponsors.
