What's in it for you?

Trying to do the right thing has been part of BOL's DNA since day 1, they have always tried to be a force for good as a business so embrace equal opportunities and cultural diversity in everything that they do. BOL take their products as serious as it gets, their responsibility to both people & planet too (they have just received their B Corp accreditation)- they believe the serious stuff can still be delivered in a fun high energy environment though. Leave the corporate mumbo jumbo at the door.

This role will largely be based out of the Veg Pad which is an awesome top floor studio with views across London - chasing down those evening sunsets from the terrace is a particular passion point for a number of the team.

The freebie food & drink benefits are pretty endless, think freshly brewed coffee from the smiley barista, plant powered brekkie, lunch and dinner on BOL not to mention the free beer, cider & prosecco taps.

The team, culture and relationships built at BOL are second to none.
You will get the opportunity to help create and execute game changing campaigns from a brand with passion and purpose.
