We are seeking an experienced, passionate, proactive and committed Operations Manager to lead on the financial and day to day management of the Brazelton Centre UK, and to help us achieve our mission to ‘give newborn babies a voice by supporting parents in understanding their unique communication’. The post-holder will be an advocate and ambassador for the Brazelton Centre UK nationally and internationally.
The Brazelton is committed to equal opportunities and can offer flexible working.
This is a part-time role (3 days per week / 7.5 hours per day or flexibly over 4 or 5 days), based on 60% pro-rata of an annual FTE salary of £33,000-£38,000 pa, depending on experience.
The Brazelton Centre UK aims to support the transition and adjustment to parenthood, focusing on the development and mental health needs of both babies and parents. Holding the baby in mind, our charity, which is research and practice based, enables health professionals to facilitate relationship building between parents and their newborn babies at a time that is experienced as a major life event. The philosophy of the organisation is one of enabling effective service development, appropriate clinical intervention and sharing of expertise.
The Centre, established in Cambridge in 1997, is a training organisation for health professionals and researchers who work with babies and parents. We offer training courses in the Newborn Behavioural Observations System (NBO) and Neonatal Behavioural Assessment Scale (NBAS). Brazelton Centre UK is one of four Centres in the world, teaching the NBO and NBAS, and the most active. Brazelton UK works in partnership with other organisations on training, surveys and research, including third sector organisations, universities, NHS trusts and organisations providing support for the under-fives. Almost 6,000 practitioners have undertaken the UK training courses in the NBO or NBAS.
The Centre currently has a staff of 6, from different professional groups, in a range of roles, with 18 Trainers (including 2 Master Trainers, 6 Senior Trainers) UK-wide, able to teach specific courses as required.
The charity has a Board of Trustees. The Operational Manager will report directly to the Director and be ultimately accountable to the Board of Trustees.
