Head of Operations (Female Applicants Only)


Starting Salary £42,000 per annum | Full-time (35 hours per week) | Permanent

This role will initially predominately involve remote working, evolving to involve regular office based working (in Shepherds Bush and London Bridge, as well as travel across London) as determined by organisational requirements

The Head of Operations is an exciting new role at Women and Girls Network (WGN). This is a unique and invaluable opportunity to contribute to one of London’s key violence against women and girls charities by leading our core operations and working alongside a highly skilled and committed team. As the senior lead for the Operations & Development team, the post holder will help ensure a high level of efficiency for all of WGN’s operations infrastructure and will:

  • Lead and oversee WGN’s core Operational support functions including Facilities, Finance, Governance, Human Resources, IT, procurement and data protection, ensuring that WGN has the appropriate organisational systems in place to deliver its present and evolving objectives
  • Ensure that the objectives and standards of WGNs Operations functions are not only understood but owned and supported by management and all other team members
  • Act as a member of the Senior Leadership Team with strategic oversight of Operations, Facilities, Finance, Governance, Human Resources, IT risk management and legal processes
  • Provide effective and empowering leadership to WGN’s Operations & Development team

We are looking for an experienced and dynamic individual to lead, manage and support this vital team and function. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of working at senior leadership level, have an expertise in at least one area of operations and in managing a multidisciplinary staff team.

This key role requires a highly motivated, organised and skilled individual who is ready to work in a varied, fast paced environment, managing a wide range of competing priorities and tasks which are essential to the core functioning of the charity. This is an opportunity for someone to shape, develop and future proof the operations function within WGN.

If you’re looking to make impact and are committed to challenging inequality and working to eradicate violence against women and girls within a women led, feminist organisation then we would welcome your application.

We welcome and encourage applications from women of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian, Minority and Ethnic communities.

WGN’s employee benefits include: 3% pension contribution, enhanced annual leave entitlement, excellent training and development opportunities and an Employee Assistance Scheme.
