An emotional connection to our work is essential; you will need to appreciate the importance of demonstrating professional authenticity with highly experienced and passionate colleagues. But you’ll also be accountable for performance to whole-organisation objectives, including one-team ways of working which will integrate national and regional ambitions more effectively. With strengths in operational management and process analysis, you’ll be able to identify the root causes of variances in performance and address them in a way which works with the grain of our shared commitment to changing lives.
Candidates are likely to have significant operational responsibility, possibly as Operations Director or COO in a smaller charity, or regional responsibility in a larger socially-focused service delivery organsiation. In either of these scenarios, it’s likely that our role offers a larger scale of opportunity, so it’s definitely attractive from a career development perspective. Despite being a relatively large charity, With You doesn’t shy away from taking big decisions. It has a progressive culture of high trust and low bureaucracy – change is encouraged, you can get things done really quickly, and colleagues at all levels are hands-on and accessible. So the pace and dynamic is attractive as well.
We're a caring, passionate and inclusive organisation where people can thrive, progress and connect with others. We express this in the way we celebrate and promote diversity of all kinds; we will offer flexible working wherever we can, and we are a disability-confident employer. We warmly encourage enquiries and applications from candidates who bring a range of life experiences and backgrounds alongside their professional profile.
