Job description

Across the UK, pervasive social, educational and economic inequalities still prevent too many young people from fulfilling their potential. We’re determined that this will change. Mission 44 is a new charitable foundation launched by Sir Lewis Hamilton to boost social mobility in the UK. It aims to support, champion and empower young people from underserved communities to succeed through narrowing opportunity gaps in education, employment and wider society.

Through grant-funding, research, partnerships and advocacy, Mission 44 will drive long-lasting, transformative change to the lives of young people facing disadvantage and discrimination. We will work closely with young people and communities with experience of diversity and inclusion challenges, to better understand the opportunities for innovation and co-create solutions that make a meaningful impact.

The Operations Manager and Executive Assistant is a vital new role in a small but growing team at Mission 44. We’re looking for an exceptionally organised person with a ‘can-do’ attitude to join our growing team. This role will suit someone who is keen to work in a fast-paced environment, enjoys working in a small but dynamic team and is passionate about young people and social justice.

  • HR support including team recruitment, induction, maintaining the employee handbook, staff training and development, and team wellbeing approaches
  • Implement and lead a cross-organisation approach to safeguarding 
  • Support effective internal communications channels
  • Undertake ad hoc small projects to support the organisation, including desk-based research and leading activities delegated to this role 
  • Organise team meetings and large team events such as away days
  • Provide administrative support for partnership and network engagement (e.g. advisory panels, stakeholder consultations)
  • Work with staff to plan and execute events, such as report releases, conferences and large meetings
  • Provide ad hoc support for implementation of our grant management processes 

Essential for the role:
