Operations Officer (Bristol and North Somerset)
Location: Field-based contract
Salary: £27,000 - £29,258 pa dependent on experience
Contract type: Permanent. This role will initially cover a maternity leave position, moving to a permanent role thereafter.
We help young people to build life-long belief in themselves, supporting them to take on their own challenges, follow their own passions and discover talents they never knew they had. Because when you prove yourself that you’re ready for anything nothing can hold you back.
Do you want to be part of that?
The Operations Officer will support the operational delivery and development of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) through managing a portfolio of Licensed Organisations (LOs). These LOs are mostly schools but we also work with other organisations including colleges, local authorities, charities, pupil referral units, youth groups and young offender institutions. As a regional office, we very rarely work directly with young people undertaking DofE programmes. You will work alongside a team of Operations Officers within DofE South West, each of whom have a portfolio of LOs to support. The role will be field-based and when not attending meetings employees will work from home. You will need to have an appropriate home office set up and live within a reasonable distance of the portfolio area, outlined above.
What we are looking for:
We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, proactive and effective team player to join DofE South West. You will report to an Operations Manager and will be responsible for the day-to-day contact and management of LOs to support the delivery of the DofE South West business plan.
You will be a passionate advocate for the work of the DofE and be driven to realise the Charity’s strategic ambition to give more than one million young people the chance to participate in our life-changing programmes, over the next five years.
If you think you have the desired skills and experience, then please apply online. As part of the application process, you will be expected to complete a statement of suitability and answer competency-based questions relevant to the role to help us assess your application.
We offer excellent staff benefits including a generous pension contribution, flexible working and an employee assistance programme.
Successful applicants will be required to undergo an enhanced criminal record check (e.g. DBS/PVG or similar).
If you would like to access the application form in a different format or if you would like any assistance that might help improve your experience while completing the application, please contact us by email.
Closing date: Midnight Monday 7th February
First interviews: Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd February (Virtual)
Second Interviews: Monday 28th February (South West Regional Office, Corston)
Since its launch in 1956, the DofE has empowered millions of young people to become the very best they can be. It was established by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, our Patron, and is still guided by the same set of principles he laid down.
The flexibility and adaptability of DofE have allowed the DofE to spread around the world. We operate through a social franchise model in the UK, licensing and supporting a wide range of organisations to deliver DofE programmes to hundreds of thousands of young people every year.
Despite the disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak our ambition to grow the number of young people who can access a DofE programme remains unchanged and we continue to engage new partners and develop innovative ways of working with businesses, the voluntary sector, and policymakers across the UK to ensure that any young person who wants to do their DofE can do so.
Diversity, equality & inclusion
The DofE is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive staff team and we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
We recruit, develop, promote and value people without regard to race, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or age. In order to meet the changing needs and aspirations of the most diverse generation of young adults ever, our staff need a range of perspectives, skills, and lived experience.
While we welcome applications from people of all backgrounds to join our passionate and friendly team, at present people of colour, disabled people, and people under 25 are not as well represented as we would like. As such we particularly encourage applicants from these backgrounds.
This is an excellent opportunity to join one of the UK’s first social investment organisations which has provided over £0.5billion worth of loans and grants to thousands of charities and social enterprises all across the UK in its 20-year history.
We specialise in helping organisations become more resilient and sustainable so that they are in the best place to grow and increase their impact in our communities where the need is greatest.
At SIB we want our team to represent the diversity of the people and communities that we serve. We also want our organisation to be one where different backgrounds, experiences, expertise and perspectives are valued, and where everyone is encouraged to grow and develop. This means that when recruiting we actively seek to reach a diverse pool of candidates. It also means that we are happy to make changes to the recruitment process and to consider any reasonable adjustments that potential candidates may have as a future employee of SIB in order to reach their full potential.
Our Values are: People First, Curious, Bold, Collaborative, Accountable
