How to become an Operations Manager


Considering a career as an Operations Manager?

Put simply, an Operations Manager is responsible for making sure a charity is running on course. It can be quite a broad position, and the responsibilities will range depending on the organisation. But generally, you'll be in charge of monitoring processes to analyse their effectiveness and building strategies that will improve overall productivity and efficiency. In the charity sector, this can cover anything from event coordination and volunteer management to making sure Health & Safety regulations are met. It's the perfect role for a sensationally organised and meticulous person.
