Job description

We are looking for someone with a positive attitude and thorough approach to their work, to ensure RESTORE provides a suitable, safe and secure working environment for its employees, volunteers and members.

Overall aims of the post

The Head of Quality & Infrastructure is responsible for ensuring that Restore’s services can be operated safely, efficiently and effectively, with the right tools and resources - and can demonstrate impact through data collection and measurement.  This includes overseeing IT, Health & Safety and Facilities Management across 4 locations in Oxfordshire, with a small team of staff, volunteers and contractors.  As a member of Restore’s Executive Team, the postholder has responsibility for ensuring a consistent approach to Quality across the organisation and, as such, has a leading role in the Quality & Performance Sub Committee.  The ability to demonstrate impact is paramount in an organisation like Restore.

Restore’s workplaces are situated in Oxford, Banbury and Didcot.  This post will be based at Restore’s Manzil Way offices in Oxford but the postholder’s responsibilities extend across all Restore sites and projects.

The Head of Quality & Infrastructure has responsibility for controlling the budget in all related areas.
