Operations & Impact Director
Closing date: Monday 20th February
The role: This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced leader who is comfortable in wearing many hats and can help steer an ambitious and mission-driven organisation through a period of rapid change and consolidation. You will report directly into the Chief Executive as a key member of the small Leadership Team and will play key role in continuing the work to build a robust organisation and to support the charity to grow and develop.
The Operations and Impact Director is responsible for key outcomes across business operations, including finance, HR, legal, compliance and governance, technology and facilities, as well as Impact and Evaluation. You will be responsible for contributing insight and knowledge to help guide the internal teams to establish the systems, processes, or ways of working that need to be in place for the organisation to succeed and thrive. You will also play a leadership role in the overall direction of the organisation and work with the executive to support the board in developing a new, long term strategic plan.
This is an important appointment for the charity and comes at a time of rapid growth, allowing considerable room for development for the right individual. In fact, the National Numeracy team has doubled in size in the last year and it’s imperative that you relish the challenge of continuing to build the team and embed the culture and practice of effective collaboration and efficient processes.
We are looking for someone who is flexible, a self-starter and able to use their own initiative. It’s not imperative that you come from the charity sector or that you have held an equivalent role previously, as long as you can show us that you have relevant transferrable skills and an understanding of what it takes to be successful in the role.
This is an exciting opportunity to lead within a small but ambitious and dynamic organisation, for someone who is passionate about making a real difference to people’s lives and livelihoods. It will be of particular interest to someone with or wanting to gain senior leadership experience in the charity sector. As a fast-growing charity in a unique position, there is a lot of scope for you to make your mark on the organisation and be directly responsible for its success.
