Head of Operations
Location: Remote with 1 day per week in London
We are delighted to be working in partnership with Kids Matter to secure their new Head of Operations.
This winter, the harsh reality is that 7.2 million low-income households are facing unimaginable challenges—deprived of essentials like food, toiletries, clothes, and basic hygiene. A staggering 1 in 3 children in the UK are trapped in the clutches of poverty.
In the heart of this crisis, Kids Matter is standing tall as a beacon of hope. Kids Matter understands that the key to breaking the cycle of poverty is to strengthen the bond between children and their most important caregivers—their parents. Kids Matter achieves this by partnering with local churches and their community networks across the UK to run evidence-informed programmes in communities and prisons. Having seen real change in hundreds of families, Kids Matter are determined to scale their impact and reach thousands more.
This is an exciting opportunity for an aspiring and influential individual to join the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) as Head of Operations. Could you join the leadership team and help Kids Matter develop and implement their ambitious 3-year strategic objectives?
The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate:
· A successful track record at senior leadership level
· Experience in operational delivery in central operation functions
· Experience of financial planning, managing budgets and producing financial reports for senior stakeholders
· Experience of managing HR issues and a working knowledge of HR best practice and legislation
· Excellent relational skills, able to lead, enthuse and inspire a team
This is an exciting opportunity for a passionate and empathetic Christian with the energy and determination to create a remarkable impact on child wellbeing and future outcomes. Collaborating with an exceptional team fully committed to the cause and eager to make a meaningful difference.
