Prospectus is delighted to be partnering with Oxfordshire Community Foundation to recruit a Chief Operating Officer, to be based at their offices in Oxford.
Oxfordshire Community Foundation (OCF) is an independent charity that will be celebrating 25 years in 2020, harnessing the power of community by bringing together people with the passion, resources and expertise to tackle the most pressing social problems facing the county. Their vision for Oxfordshire is a kinder place, with a greater sense of community, a place where people feel more connected to those around them. A place where everyone understands that no-one has to sleep rough on the streets; that everyone has a place to call home; where every child has the opportunity to aspire and to thrive; where no-one, young or old, has to experience loneliness or to deal with their problems in isolation.
Drawing extensively on best practice, both in the UK and internationally the trustees and CEO have concluded that their vision can only be realised if OCF significantly scales up its investment in systems, processes and people, at the same time as deepening and extending the ambition and relevance of its work.
Following a review of their strategy, the organisation is now focusing resources on fewer, larger and more complex programmes, as well as improving their measurement of impact. This is requiring the CEO to prioritise significantly more of her time on fund development and wider stakeholder engagement thus creating an opportunity for a new senior position responsible for managing the full range of the organisation's internal activities, in particular, programme resourcing, distribution of funds and team well-being.
With experience scaling up an organisation as part of an executive management team, the new Director will have the skills, sensitivity, and personal confidence to both lead and build on the capabilities of a committed, bright, diverse and effective team. Managing the full range of the organisation's internal activities, in particular, distribution of funds and finance functions, the role holder must be a leader who is able to help others at OCF deliver measurable, cost-effective results, to control costs and manage budgets, and to ensure the timing and scheduling of OCF Strategic Programmes are well resourced and planned.
Experience and attributes to include:
- Strong understanding of finance, systems, and HR and broad experience of the full range of business functions
- A professional accountancy qualification
- Significant experience of scaling up an organisation and managing that change within a budget
- Proven track record of achieving and exceeding goals
- Strategic vision with the ability to anticipate future consequences and trends
- Strong leadership skills with the ability to develop a talented workforce as well as the processes that ensure the organisation runs smoothly
- A belief in the core values of OCF and a drive to lead social change

Our project involves the supply and installation of solar mini-grids in rural NE India, selling the energy for domestic and productive uses. The production of renewable energy replaces diesel and kerosene and reduces the need for a coal-based centralised power infrastructure. The supply of clean electricity is a catalyst to drive sustainable economic and social benefits.
We create long-term improvement in the lives of communities by providing the reliable energy, finance and expertise upon which to build a financially and environmentally sustainable economy.
However, the scale of the problem far exceeds our means to solve this alone and is not just an energy issue. Realising this mis-match, we have focused on being systemic and catalytic in our approach. From 2020, the next phase of our strategy will allow us to frame our electrification programme as the creation of a replicable and scalable model and provide the transition to our next phase of activity – systemic and catalytic action to help develop nature-based economies.
