ILC, the UK’s specialist think tank on the impact of longevity on society, and what happens next, is looking for a part-time Head of Operations (Maternity Cover) to be responsible for the daily operations of the organisation.
This is an exciting and diverse role for someone looking for a new year-long challenge. During the contract, you will be encouraged to identify and work on new operational projects that will enhance the organisation.
The ideal candidate will have experience of office management in a small organisation and will have the ability to work dynamically - moving between large long-term projects and short tasks under tight timeframes. You will join our dedicated Senior Management Team (SMT), leading on our general operations and seeking continuous improvement in line with our strategic goals. During the placement, you will have the opportunity to work on some new and exciting operations projects.
You will have experience developing and reinforcing processes and procedures and working with confidential data. Amongst a number of responsibilities, the post holder will service the ILC Board of Trustees, leading on the preparation of meeting papers and attending meetings, managing recruitment campaigns including working with the Director and line managers on job descriptions, recruitment packs, and drafting employment contracts.
You will be an accomplished people manager, able to lead and support the wider team. You will keep up to date with the latest government advice and directives - providing the organisation with appropriate guidance as we work through the current coronavirus pandemic. As we are a small team, you will have exposure to the whole organisation and will work closely with all members of the team from the SMT to the researchers, finance team and the events and communications team.
This is a unique opportunity to work for an established and respected London-based think tank where you will quickly be able to make your mark.
