Office Assistant Jobs in London

Elevator Pitch: The Company. Us. Runway East.

At Runway East, we’re a team of tech lovers, entrepreneurs, ex-startup founders and customer service advocates, who go above and beyond to keep our companies thriving. It’s been 6 years, and we’ve grown to five locations, over 2,000 members and watched our companies raise over £500 million. We’re here to make good work, with good people. And we’re here to have fun. Incomparable company, superstar service, dogs on demand, Cake Wednesdays and our infamous Friday beer trolley – these are all things we build into creating happiness every day. But what really sets us apart from the coworking crowd is us.

Runway East has a strong brand, passionate customer base and most importantly, a product customers genuinely love. Covid has presented challenges, but it has also presented opportunities. The way of working has been flipped upside down and the demand for flexibility is greater than ever. We’re ready to take full advantage of that.
