Job Description


The Head of Operations is a new role for our growing team and will lead and manage all of our internal operations.


Reporting directly to the Executive Director, this is a senior leadership role and the successful candidate will be a key member of the leadership team alongside the Head of Training, Head of Organising and the soon to be appointed Head of Communications. As a member of the leadership team, the Head of Operations will also be required to build a strong relationship with the Board of Directors and when called upon, deputise for the Director alongside the other Heads.


As NEON grows so does its need to engage in a range of complex operational activities. The Head of Operation’s primary role will be to take responsibility for and ensure the effective organisation of NEON’s finance, operations, IT, HR and governance functions. Whilst the applicant may not be an expert in all areas, the successful candidate will demonstrate strong leadership in overseeing the development and maintenance of these core operations and where relevant, sourcing appropriate and cost-effective specialist support. The key focus of the role is to develop and implement the systems and processes needed to deliver on NEON’s strategic vision.


About You


We are looking for someone who brings a broad range of operational and organisational experiences to NEON. You will have a breadth of knowledge and clear understanding of how to lead the operations of an organisation effectively in an agile and often demanding environment. The ideal candidate will have a strong grasp of financial, operational and organisational strategies and be adept at delivering policies that align to NEON’s overarching strategic vision.


As a member of the leadership team, the post holder will be required to operate across many levels. Whilst the candidate will actively lead and be hands on operationally speaking, they must also be able to demonstrate an ability to engage at a strategic level and inform longer-term decision-making. Although the post holder may not have previously worked for an organisation of this kind, a background in social justice, social enterprise or not-for-profit management may be advantageous.


About NEON


The New Economy Organisers Network (NEON) is a network of over 1,600 activists working to replace neoliberalism with an economy and politics based on social and environmental justice.


Our members come from over 900 trade unions, grassroots groups, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), faith-based campaigns, political parties and movements.


We run trainings, share skills and coordinate together on campaigns helping people to lead movements like Just Treatment (organising patients to fight for the NHS) through to working with our members to get nearly 800 media bookings across the UK’s biggest TV/Radio outlets. We’re ambitious and the team is agile, fast paced and committed to actually changing things. After a successful year, we’re growing the team to meet the needs of our members and our three year organisational strategy.
