9-month fixed term contract
Full time, 35 hours per week with flexible working (compressed hours considered)
Salary £40,000-£45,000 based on experience
Excellent benefits including 25 days annual leave (pro rata) plus up to 5 Wellbeing days, Employee Assistance Programme, pension, work from home allowance
Would you like to join a small but mighty charity, working as part of an inspirational team delivering real change for women and girls?
Do you have a strong track record of effective and efficient operational management including financial management, HR, IT and governance?
Are you highly organised and practical with a can-do attitude, and looking for an interim role within the Women's Sector?
Charity People are delighted to be partnering with Surviving Economic Abuse (SEA), the only UK charity dedicated to raising awareness of economic abuse and transforming responses to it, to bring on board a Senior Operations Manager for a 9-month contract.
Economic abuse is a form of coercive and controlling behaviour: 95% of women who experience domestic abuse will experience economic abuse. Not only does it limit their choices and ability to access safety, but it has an ongoing impact. It damages future dreams and aspirations, and, in some cases, it takes lives.
SEA's vision is a world in which all women and girls are economically equal and live their lives free of abuse and exploitation.
The Senior Operations Manager will oversee the operations function of SEA, including financial management, HR, IT and governance. Working directly with the CEO, Chair and Trustees whilst the charity transitions to a new CEO in April 2024, the Senior Operations Manager will be responsible for the effective and efficient internal management of SEA, ensuring that the charity has the operational infrastructure needed for growth.
- Financial Management and Risk: You will provide leadership and support to the Finance Manager, ensuring robust financial management. You will identify areas of concern and suggest mitigations, and oversee SEA's Risk Register, ensuring effective risk management.
- HR and Wellbeing: You will manage day-to-day HR activities, including recruitment, onboarding, and addressing HR queries and support the charity's wellbeing package.
- Governance: You will work closely with the Executive and Governance Assistant, CEO, and Trustees to ensure smooth Trustee activity.
- Operations: You will oversee IT systems, including collaboration with outsourced IT support and managing day-to-day issues. You will provide management support for procurement, GDPR, information management, learning and development, and health and safety. You will also be responsible for overseeing the roll-out of SalesForce (CRM system).
- Line management: You will line manage the Finance Manager, Executive and Governance Assistant and Operations Assistant, providing support and developing staff within your team.
The Senior Operations Manager will have experience managing finance and operations functions, ideally within a small charity, and with experience of prioritising and managing a complex workload. The successful candidate will have a can-do attitude, capable of managing diverse administrative and operational activities with an understanding of governance, HR processes, and procedures in a charity or voluntary sector setting. You will have strong communication skills and the ability to manage relationships with internal and external stakeholders. You will be comfortable working in a remote setting and able to work independently and flexibly. You will have high levels of IT literacy, including proficiency in Teams, project management software, and cloud-based systems. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate commitment to the values and feminist ethos of SEA.
The role is home-based, and the successful candidate will ideally be based in London or the Southeast. A laptop and telephone are provided, and travel expenses are covered. The wider SEA team meets virtually once a month, with quarterly in-person meetings at various locations across the country. Due to the nature of our work and this role, the appointment is subject to satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, as well as references.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a passionate and dedicated team. If you are excited by this and have the relevant skills and experience to apply, we would be delighted to hear from you.

- Stress busting Residential Respite Breaks, giving young carers the opportunity to make happy memories.
- Three- week SEAL education booster program including a four-day residential stay at Honeypot, to help young carers who struggle to progress in school due to poor confidence and self- belief that they can learn, to find the confidence that they can succeed in education.
- Wellbeing grants, for essential items no child should lack, such as a clean bed, or new school clothes.
- Face to face outreach including memory making days out at the beach, countryside, or fun park for young carers who never get this experience.
