The Protein Works
Our Story So Far
Rewind to 12th December 2012. Out of a freezing cold office (because we couldn’t afford heating back then!), our founders huddled round a couple of computer screens. This was the moment. After a year of working round the clock and a lifetime of tempering the thirst to create a world-class brand, we pressed LAUNCH. That was the moment THE PROTEIN WORKS™ website went live to the globe.
It’s not an overly fancy story, we know. There’re no garages worked out of, no office in the Bay Area to talk up. But fancy isn’t in our DNA, innovation is. With the idea to rock the very foundations of a sports nutrition industry that had become complacent, we set out to create an online sports nutrition brand that put pure quality & wow service before lowest possible price. With that vision and all it entails; we knew we’d be the underdogs from the very beginning. But you know what? We love that.
Fast forward almost 6 years and the journey from humble Cheshire beginnings, to over 1 million orders shipped globally may be in the bag, but our future is just beginning…
Get On Board The Rocket Ship
At our Cheshire based HQ we handle the full business mix. On one side of our HQ you’ll find our Operations Department, including Finance & Planning all the way to Fulfilment, Warehousing and our very own Production facilities, pumping out the finest fit foods on the market. Step a couple of yards across, and you’ll open the doors to where we plot, plan and perform! In our central Sales & Marketing Team we handle the full Performance Marketing mix, Brand Management, Design, Customer Experience, Content Creation, SEO and CRO and Trading. We also have an inhouse Tech Team & International Trade working alongside us… all in the one place. Is it a squeeze? Sure. But only when it comes to knowledge base! We do this on purpose because we believe that our business is best when it collaborates and moves as one. It’s super charges personal and business growth.
Innovation Is In Our Bones
At our very core we believe in innovation in everything we touch. It’s engrained in our product range, in our people and in our proposition.
So of course, it follows naturally that we believe in an in-house approach to everything. We purposely put the talent and expertise that our business thrives on in the sole care of ourselves and our team. In short, we don’t ‘do’ agencies and we categorically believe that if there’s a solution to be had – our team are the best ones to devise and deliver it. As such, TPW is an entrepreneurial place that values those people who want to make a dent, don’t want to be held back & don’t do politics. Our people are bored with ‘corporate’, are positively impatient & passionate self-learners. The culture is fast paced, supportive, and audacious.
The way our business is built and what we’re capable of, reflects that mindset.
Opportunities Like This Aren’t Normal
This is your chance get on board! Joining a team of talent in the next fast growth phase of the business as we deliver to an ambitious 5-year plan which sees Marketing & Tech investment as key to our success. Work with like-minded, passionate people, deliver to ambitious monthly targets internationally, have the autonomy normal people would be scared of, whilst enjoying flexible working, in a market that is buzzing, in offices purposely located out of the jammed city centre, in the suburbs of the northern digital hub.
