Why you?

You are the person everyone needs and love because you can fix really anything. If tasks were objects you would be a professional juggler at the circus. You arrange things your colleagues didn’t even know they needed and you know how to answer their every question, making them wonder how they could have ever survived without you.

How to explain your job to others?

As part of the JOHAN Sports management team you are basically the main reason this organization is up and running and the Head of Operations is not institutionalized.

What will you do?

You will be the hands-on, no-nonsense, hard worker for all internal operations in the fields of HR, Finance, Legal and Facility and the unwavering support for the Head of Operations. In short: you make your JOHAN-colleagues happy. To have lots of happy people, we are also going to need more people. The focus in the beginning will therefore be on HR / Recruitment.

An average day in the office..

Fair enough, there are no average days in this role, which is of course why you like it so much. But still, let’s try.

          Even coming in to the office you already brighten up the day of your colleagues with your energetic appearance. Finally awake after three cups of coffee you check your planning for the day and briefly discuss the ongoing topics with the Head of Operations. With your excellent planning skills, you have already foreseen the changes in the course of the day and indeed… within the hour the first colleague is at your desk: good news, another club has seen the light and wants to work with JOHAN! You draft the contract and make a note to keep track of the signature process until you come up with a better way to do this.

          You also draft the invoice following the contract and while you’re at it you send the next batch of invoices and update the cashflow statement. After preparing the payments overview for the Head of Operations and an always hilarious phone call with the Accountant on the VAT return, it’s time for lunch with your colleagues. Intense discussions and corny jokes make you laugh so badly you almost spill your lunch. Watch your clothes, because you now need to welcome the next appointment of our CEO, being the JOHAN business card that came to live.

          While enjoying a little break, your colleague comes running for your help because he cannot access the team drive on his MacBook any longer. With your superhero computer skills, you resolve this in two seconds, so the completely relieved colleague goes happily back to work. Since JOHAN Sports is going to realize its ambition and now wants more people like you, you are sorting all the job applications to find the right candidates. You consult these with the Head of Operations and call the candidates to plan interviews.

          The last hour of your day you’ll spend to look for a new office space to accommodate all these new hires, knowing exactly what specifications you want, to give them all the best possible JOHAN-experience. You found a great one and immediately schedule to discuss this with the Head of Operations the next morning.

Who will you work with?

You will work with and report to Emma, Head of Operations. As part of the JOHAN Sports management
team you will work closely with Robin, CEO as well. Niels, Head of Sports Science and Luc, Sports
Marketer will be sharing the information for new clients with you and Hidde, Head of Technology comes
to you for stock orders. Of course, the team will expand, with your help.
