Community manager required for coworking space

The community manager has a critical role in any shared space like Hastings HIVE, ensuring the smooth operation of the building and services, so customers can focus on running their business, not an office.

Our community managers have also greatly influenced the formation of the vibrant and welcoming coworking community that customers and their staff enjoy today.

It will be a challenge to replace Claire, our current and wonderfully capable community manager, but the good news is that we will continue to enjoy her company around the HIVE, as she has taken an exciting new role with one of our long-standing HIVE customers, Beca Engineering.

So, if you or anyone you know would be up for the challenge of providing a high level of service for customers, whilst taking care of the business details, we would love to hear from you (or them).
