  • Own the eNPS and analysis and support actions: Our quarterly employee engagement survey gives us the best insights about the team, you will own it and analyse it and collaborate with the wider team to put action plans in place.
  • Internal comms: Assist with the weekly internal company meeting (“WIP”) from topic brainstorming to presenter coordination and deck preparation.
  • Projects: Support the People team by identifying and delivering new initiatives that attract, grow and retain our talent.
  • Keep up to date with new developments in HR tech that could make processes more efficient.

About us

At LoveCrafts we’re building online communities for crafters: homes for makers where they can find inspiration for their latest projects, learn new techniques, easily source all their supplies and share their creations with like-minded makers around the world.

Since launching in 2012, we’ve grown incredibly quickly. Our membership in the prestigious Future Fifty and 20th place on the FT’s list of fastest growing European companies is thanks to the hard work of our team of smart, kind makers based in London, Kyiv and in the USA.  We’ve been fuelled by investment from Europe’s leading venture capital firms; Balderton Capital (LoveFilm, The Hut) funded our Series A round, followed by Highland Europe (Photobox, WeTransfer) and most recently Scottish Equity Partners (SkyScanner, Matches Fashion).
