Brent is a serial entrepreneur who co-founded lastminute.com, Smartup, Grip, mydeco.com, PROfounders, made.com, Founders Forum, Founders Factory, and is now launching firstminute capital. Brent is looking for a dynamic, self starter as his Head of Special Projects. The perfect candidate is a tenacious, detail-oriented problem solver who likes to get their hands dirty by tackling any project at speed, and igniting a fresh perspective on new opportunities.

Brent Hoberman:

As our Head of Special Projects, you will be responsible for driving complex initiatives across our organization. In this role, your primary purpose will be to provide leverage and create capacity for our Executive Chairman so he can focus on our business’s most important and impactful initiatives. You’ll be exposed to a broad scope of responsibilities including owning special projects, researching and running with new initiatives, keeping important external stakeholders and influencers engaged with the business, and liaising with key internal business units.


You should be seriously organised with a keen eye for detail, proactive and autonomous; we’re not the kind of office where someone will be telling you what to do every two minutes, so you need to be able to manage your own workload and motivate yourself. You will need strong judgement skills leading to effective decision making.
