The other day we received a message on our Facebook page:
“Hey, I’ve just graduated from Glasgow university and want to get into the startup scene. Getting involved with a current startup seems to be what is mostly advised on the web as a good way to start, but I’ve been researching on the internet and can’t find anywhere where there is any info on startups that are hiring in Scotland or the UK for that matter, perhaps there aren’t any hiring outside people? Any advice on where to look or any other advice would be appreciated…”
This would be the perfect opportunity to introduce a new company called…wait for it…WorkInStartups, which helps people find exciting jobs in awesome startups.
Founder Diana Proca (formerly of Launch48) has been extremely busy over the last couple of months looking for jobs within UK startups to advertise on her site, and she’s found loads! There are lots of exciting roles for designers, developers, marketers, sales folk, managers as well as a variety of intern positions for people wanting to gain experience.
One limitation, quite a severe one for those not wanting to move out of Scotland, is that most of the roles advertised are London-based. But it is not intended to remain this way. So, calling all startups in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and the rest of Scotland….if you would like to advertise for people who specifically want to work in startups, why don’t you submit vacancy details to email@example.com or tweet @workinstartups. The last time I checked, it was completely FREE to do so!
