15 places to find a startup job in London — July 20, 2013

15 places to find a startup job in London

ldnbus

Breaking into the London startup scene and getting your first job can be hard – especially if you are moving from a corporate role or you’re a recent university graduate.

Although, there are no shortage of networking events happening around Silicon Roundabout, we wanted to put together a comprehensive list of job boards specifically listing startup tech roles.

For the larger tech companies, Linkedin is a great resource – especially for getting those important introductions – however the sites below are also a great place to start.

So without further ado, and in no particular order, here are my Top 15 Startup Job Boards for London roles:

1. Google Campus London is a great place to start looking for fresh startup roles and tech and dev jobs.

2. 3beards Jobs Board is the one stop shop for all tech related jobs going in Tech City at the moment.

3. Work in Startups lists startup roles including technical, marketing, intern and co-founder listings.

4. EscTheCity is a website for those who want to escape the corporate rat race and explore all types of opportunities such as working for a startup, volunteer work and anything else in between.

5. Tech City Jobs is powered by TechHub and JobsPage. Regular listings for dev & tech jobs around Silicon Roundabout.

6. Built in London comes from the team at Steer, who have put together all jobs available at startups based in London.

7. Mind The Product includes exclusive listings for product management roles.

8. Hacker Jobs UK lists only technical and development roles.

9. Upstart Jobs posts all types of startup roles from developers, marketing and sales vacancies.

10. UK Startup Jobs has a variety of listings from technical roles, to sales and biz dev to marketing roles.

11. JobPage is a crowd sourced job network and feature listings for all types of roles from sales assistants, to managers and account executives at an agency. But since they are startup themselves check back here for any related tech and startup roles.

12. Mars Jobs was born in Berlin, but has recently started to list startup jobs based in London.

13. Online Community Manager Jobs is the place to look for social media and community management roles.

14. Chinwag Jobs Board is a great resource for all digital, social media, web design, ecommerce, UX and technical roles.

15. Gorkana lists online journalism, social media and editorial and PR jobs.

Curator Year in Review 2012: Chloe in London — November 30, 2012

Curator Year in Review 2012: Chloe in London

As the end of 2012 approaches, we thought it’d be nice to have an update from our beloved city curators. To kick us off, Chloe Nicholls in London, aka @ThatGirl_Chloe, highlights some of her most appreciated events, spaces and top moments of 2012.

Best event for meeting people? 

Any of the events organised by @3Beards i.e. SiliconDrinkabout, Digital SizzleDon’t Pitch Me Bro – these guys have really revived the tech and startup scene in London.

Best event for content shared and learnings? 

General Assembly London for key learnings and workshops, and some favourite  conferences and events include Social Media WeekInternet Week EuropeleWeb LondonReMixMind the Product and Wired 2012

Personal event stye preference? 

Although I attend many conferences and big events every year, I prefer smaller panels and workshops, with a great MC who can ask direct questions – not only to the panel but to the audience too and get a debate going. I find that it’s the people in the audience who sometimes have the most interesting answers/points of view rather than the speakers or panel.

Favourite source of local community news? 

Twitter and Facebook is where I find out all my industry goss!

Favourite coworking space? 

For the creatives The Hospital Club and for the techies Google Campus and Central Working (great coworking spaces and cafe even if it’s sometimes bursting at the seams).

Favourite cafe with wifi? 

The Breakfast Club! (Good place for breakfast, lunch or both; brunch – plus they have great wifi access). 

What’s been a personal highlight and not so high moment of the year? 

Heading to SXSW with my team from Newspepper and low light, bit of an obvious one, but the summer rain before the London 2012 Olympics – it was endless rain for about one month.

What have you enjoyed about being involved with The Fetch in 2012?

The Fetch has been a great way to tap into London’s tech, business and creative communities and keep up-to-date on going on for professionals. By curating the newsletter, I get to discover new  events and share them with the rest of the community. I’ve definitely met some interesting characters along the way!

What are you looking forward to in 2013? 

I can’t wait to start hosting The Fetch Conversations – which are thought-leader dinners for The Fetch community plus continue to work with our brilliant Community Ambassadors and build the community for a wider audience. 

Hello Chloe – our London fetcher — January 23, 2012

Hello Chloe – our London fetcher

We went north for Brisbane, but obviously it wasn’t quite north enough! I’m very excited about this next city… today is our official launch day in London and I’m pleased to announce semi-expat Chloe Nicholls as curator. I’ve known Chloe for a while now and have had the pleasure of hanging with her in Melbourne and London (at the amazing Hospital Club!). She’s also a complete community gun and when not fetchin’, makes stuff happen at Newspepper HQ – a global video production startup. Chloe will be sharing the best events, meetups, community news, jobs and more in each fortnight’s fetch. You can submit items to her via email here, via @thefetchlon and don’t forget to subscribe on http://thefetch.com so we’ll arrive straight to your box. Our first appropriately red themed fetch will be sent this morning at 9.30am GMT (ah, the new joys of multiple time zones). As part of Chloe’s welcome, we put a few questions to her

Chloe Nicholls

How did you end up where you are today?

I was born in the UK, but moved to Australia when I was two years old, and grew up in Melbourne. I travelled back and forth, and at sixteen I decided I wanted to move back to London to work in the media industry after my university degree. So I did just that. I travelled around Europe for a year, then settled in London and got my first job for a PR company. By the force of serendipity, I met Hermione Way and began working for her company Newspepper.com. Since then I’ve been working in the tech, social media and startup space for a couple of years and this year I’m excited to be curating The Fetch for Londoners.

What makes you tick? What makes you ick?

I’m addicted to the internet, love a good fancy dress party and dance to the beat of my own drum. Dislike spicy food, people who take games too seriously and trolls.

Why do you love ‘fetchin?

I’m always scouring the internet, finding out about new events, places and fun things to do in London, and by curating The Fetch I’m looking forward to sharing these nuggets of info with the rest of the community and my friends online. I’ve already made a London Guides Twitter list year here, so I thought that The Fetch could be a good extension of my findings.

What things excite you about our community right now?

It’s great to have all things digital, creative and business ‘under the one roof’, with the reach going beyond just tech and startup events. I love that readers can submit their own picture to be featured every fortnight; every issue is completely unique and it celebrates London from a different perspective, not just a touristy, over-crowed and rainy point of view!

What’s your favourite thing about your city?

It doesn’t matter what night of the week it is, there is something always happening. I also love how easy it is to travel around using the Tube and bus system. It may not be perfect – especially at rush hour – but it is still one of the best connected cities in the world.

Where can we find you in London?

Usually at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden or East London Town.

How can we connect with you?

Follow me on Twitter @ThatGirl_Chloe@thefetchlon, Facebook and send me your event listings, cool jobs and links to chloe@thefetch.org.
