This is a new role within a small but impactful organisation, reporting directly to the Chief Executive and working closely with all members of the Leadership Team. We are seeking an experienced operational leader to help take the organisation to the next level in terms of robust planning and financial process and ensuring a positive and connected culture with a focus on professional development.

This is a critical role with responsibility for ensuring that UKGBC’s operations are efficient, effective and integrated across all functions. It will suit an individual with significant operational management experience and a strong track record of delivering effective support at all levels. The role will own and coordinate the complex business planning and budgeting process, and ongoing implementation and reporting, providing support to the entire team and working closely with the CEO, Leadership Team and existing Finance, People & Operations team. The role will be responsible for ensuring we have people, systems, and processes in place for attracting, supporting, developing and retaining talented people, including improving our processes and culture around performance management, learning and development, and internal communications.

Our lean ‘core’ support team is the glue that holds together our diverse programmes, so the Head of Finance and Operations will need to be an incredibly strong project manager, an excellent communicator, and an empathetic people person with a problem-solving can-do attitude. As a small purpose-driven organisation, it’s crucial that all roles on the Leadership Team are able to operate strategically and also be hands-on when necessary, adopting a constructive and problem-solving attitude.
