Here at COMMERCIALCafé we’ve already talked a lot about working at coworking hubs. We’ve presented the many advantages of coworking office spaces, the difference between shared and traditional offices, and we’ve also showcased a handful of specialized hubs that target specific professional groups.
But what about the other side of the coin? What if your goal is not to work from a coworking office space but at one? If you’re looking for employment within this particular industry, we have fantastic news! With the ever-growing nature of shared office spaces, help is always needed at coworking hubs. With the right mindset and attitude, you can choose between a long list of available jobs at various coworking hubs.
You can start your job-hunting journey by reaching out to different coworking offices near you and ask about any potential job openings. But this can get quite tedious and might even take a lot of your time. So if you want to simplify this process, you’ll be happy to find a handful of online platforms where you can conduct your search based on location, activity and working hours. Check out three websites where you can find jobs within the coworking industry:
Coworking.Jobs is an online platform where you can post vacancies at your local shared office space or look for employment at a coworking hub. A job search can be done in many ways: you can look for employment by typing in a relevant keyword, search for work based on location, and even look for part-time, full-time, freelance, or temporary positions. You can save your interests and then create job alerts to get notified when a suitable opening pops up.
A separate, but equally impressive feature of this website is that you can also search for people! Yes, you read that right, you can actually search for professionals working within fields like consultancy, marketing, management, finances, operations, and even sales. As you can see, the platform is pretty generous, offering a myriad of opportunities both for those running a coworking hub and for those who are interested in working at one.
Coworkies is a similar global platform, offering job openings to those interested in working at a coworking office space. They mostly offer job openings in large cities across Europe, including Brussels, Istanbul, Oslo, Barcelona, Berlin, and London, complemented by a handful of large US cities like New York and Atlanta. The site keeps up an active forum where members can ask questions related to activities within the industry and interact with each other.
Job searches are completed using location and/or relevant keywords. If you’re someone who owns a coworking hub, you can post job openings on Coworkies and specify the exact skills potential employee needs to possess in order to help narrow your search.
Indeed.com is an employment search engine not strictly posting about coworking-related job offers, but rather employment opportunities in all fields of work. By typing in “coworking” in their keyword search tab, you’ll encounter a plethora of job openings all over the United States.
You can leisurely narrow down your search by selecting the city you’d like to work in and the estimated salary you’d like to earn on a yearly basis. Job types are limited to part-time, full-time, contract-based, commission-based, temporary, or internship positions. You can also select your experience level (entry, mid, or senior level) and can choose the company you wish to work for with a simple click of a button.
