What was the inspiration that got you to where you are today?

We are working with the nation's leading youth volunteering charity who are inspired by the belief that young people’s creativity, energy and optimism can change the world. To enable this to happen they provide young people with opportunities to do amazing things through volunteering and social action. 

We have created more than one million volunteering opportunities in the past eight years. In the past year alone almost 32,000 young people used our online volunteering marketplace to connect with more than 1,500 charities.

They have a very clear plan for where they want to be by 2020 and the role of Director of Operational Services is central to their ambitions for scale, reach and recognition across the UK. 

As a senior leader, your role is to manage our service delivery operations across the Operational Services Directorate. You will lead the team of 20+ staff that deliver our core services, programmes, contracts & projects. Reporting directly into the Chief Executive the role also offers the scope of operating at Board level and working with trustees.

This role is made for someone that enjoys the complexity and challenges that accompany programme delivery within the current market, which is fast paced and pressurised. A background in programmes management at a senior level would be obvious relevant experience, but it might also suit an individual with a grant-making background.

Alongside a competitive salary, 30 days’ a year annual leave (plus public holidays), stakeholder pension scheme, volunteering leave, Medicash Healthcare, Life Assurance & Critical Illness cover, and various other employee benefits.
