We are currently looking for a Manager to provide maternity cover for our existing General Manager. The role involves leading our small and hardworking team, and is suited to a candidate who is hardworking, pragmatic and hands on.

Giveacar provides a vital service to many UK charities, is a trusted fundraiser and has built up a reputation of excellent customer service. We are a not-for-profit business and our candidate should uphold our values of putting charities first, whilst maximising donations. This is a rewarding opportunity with a high level of autonomy. Reporting to our two Directors, you will have agency to improve the business and increase donations.
Ideally the candidate will have experience of running a successful small business or not-for-profit.
