CARE International UK is looking for an ambitious and dynamic Chief Operating Officer (COO) who will contribute to leading the organisation at a time of change and funding ambiguity. You will be joining a team and organisation of highly committed and passionate people who are all committed to our mission and vision.
As COO, you will have responsibility for IT, HR, Risk & Compliance, as well as legal and company secretary, so will have experience of leading and managing high performing teams, from the charity, public or private sectors.
Professionally, you will be a qualified Accountant and will have worked at Director or Senior Management level within a sizeable and complex international organisation with experience of large commercial contracts. You will be able to contribute to organisational wide leadership on strategy, business modelling, as well as operational effectiveness and transformation, and will be comfortable making decisions despite uncertainty.
We are committed to attracting candidates from diverse backgrounds who share our passion for change, values and have the skills and drive to help modernise CARE. We have a diverse team, reflecting the diversity of London, however, our Senior Management Team is less diverse than it was, and we are very keen to attract Black, Asian and People of Colour candidates. We are also keen to attract candidates with disabilities, and people who identify as LGBT. People with experience of living or working in developing countries and who have insights into the culture, health, education and political environments are also highly desirable.
