You have choices if you strive to be a part of a team driven to create with purpose, now is your chance to Find your Forward as “Workplace Manager, Istanbul" with DefineX.

Your Impact:

  • Creating a warm and inclusive environment is the primary role of the workplace manager. You have a knack for networking and making everyone feel comfortable,

  • Being able to seek answers and solutions for unexpected issues is one of the most powerful skills you have,

  • It’s often the little things — like fresh-brewed coffee and a comfortable seat — that add up to a great workplace experience. For you, no request is too small to warrant your attention. That level of care and attentiveness serves leaders well in this role,

  • While you will have to put out little “fires” every day, you also need to be able to juggle long-term projects, such as planning the annual company retreat, happy hours, hosting classroom trainings or developing a competitive welcome kit to new DefineXers,

  • You may not know how to install ductwork, but you should be able to recognize when poor ventilation is impacting employee productivity. You should “know enough about facilities and IT to be dangerous” — or at least be willing to learn those skills.

  • Managing internal communications is one of the most critical parts of the job description. A great workplace manager should have excellent verbal and written communication skills.

    It’s not always what you say. Sometimes, it’s how you say it.

  • Like any good workplace leader, you must be able to remain calm while coping with difficult situations. You need to be able to understand and address immediate needs while keeping your eyes trained towards the future.

  • Being curious is a good start, but to be truly effective as a workplace manager, that curiosity needs to culminate to taking action.

    The right person for this role will be daring. You’ll dare to try new technology, new ways of working, and new processes.

What You Bring to the Table:

  • Bachelor’s degree in a related field,
  • 10+ years of experience in a hospitality driven environment,
  • Solid and demonstrable track record of managing cross functional teams, delivering to business expectations and maintaining a high level of service,
  • Space planning and multitasking expertise,
  • A clear vision with regard to the maintenance of a vibrant, functional workplace,
  • Ability to build rapport with DefineXers in order to accurately assess facilities issues.
