Our client is a national advocacy charity whose mission it is to enable people who face disadvantage or discrimination to strengthen their voices, champion their rights and change their lives. They are now recruiting a new Regional Operations Manager, to oversee the charity's high profile, innovative services across the South West of England.
As Regional Operations Manager, you will provide strategic and operational leadership across your particular region, to ensure that services meet or exceed performance and quality expectations. You will manage a budget (up to Â£3m) and using your business acumen will work closely with the Business Development team to secure new contracts in order for the charity to extend their reach.
