Now Recruiting Operations Manager

Would you like to help the planet and its people, while driving operational excellence within a scaling social enterprise in an emerging industry?

Great! We are looking for a well-rounded Operations Manager to own our key pillars of finance, governance, risk and compliance and lead major projects.


A bit of an overview



A bit about the job


The Operations Manager is the lynchpin that enables the systems, processes and projects that ensure the organisation’s effective delivery. 

You will work closely with the Executive Director to empower a small expert team – including one direct report (Administration Officer), a third-party CFO, members of the board who comprise the Governance, Risk and Finance Committee, interdependent colleagues and other contracted service providers. 

You will lead the critical organisational pillars of finance, risk, governance and compliance, including reporting and major projects including an enterprise digital transformation. This is a critical and senior position within our agile and pioneering social enterprise. As we are an organisation that also values work/life balance, with the right candidate we are happy to explore this being a 0.8 position (paid pro-rata).

But we are committed to finding the right person to join our team and know that sometimes means you’ll excel in a number of areas, and need to develop in others. We’re all human after all (and we’re looking for exactly one of those!).
