At 5874, we care about people and we want to prioritise you as an individual. We can provide you with the skills and opportunity to develop and reach your full potential – what’s most important is that you’re a good fit and willing to learn – what you don’t know we can teach you. If you feel you are up for this role, then we want to hear from you.
A creative problem solver with a natural can do attitude. There has never been a box to ‘think out of’ because boxes get in the way unless they’re useful to solve the problem - like climbing on them
Seeking out and discovering the best solutions for everything you come across.
A confident individual who can’t remember the last time they paid a visit to their comfort zone.
You enjoy throwing around ideas and creating possibilities, happily putting them up to the test of whether they will work or not. Good ideas not only have to fly, but they also have to stay up there no matter what gets thrown at them.
You already have your own ‘projects’ solving those things you’ve identified to improve everyday existence.
Here at 5874 Commerce, we want to support our colleagues to do their best work, have a good work life balance, work flexibly and live anywhere, whilst staying connected and getting the job done.
Having a home where the team can come together is important to us so we will never be a fully remote company, but if you’re the right fit then we want you to work for us whether you live in Birmingham or the Bermuda Triangle. So don’t let your address stop you from applying!
