Carney’s Community is looking for Chief Operations Officer to help us move into our next exciting phase.

Carney’s Community has undergone a period of huge change over the last six years. Originally based in Fitzroy lodge boxing club, we moved into our current premises – the Carney’s Community Centre – in 2013. This has allowed us to expand our activities and grow our presence, as well as significantly expanding our funding base. This expansion now requires a capable operations and finance lead to support the Chief Executive Officer into the next exciting phase of Carney’s Community’s development. After a period of significant expansion we are entering a consolidation phase, aiming to improve the effectiveness of our internal systems and processes, the capabilities of our team, and ultimately the quality of our impact on the young people we work with.

The successful candidate will be a senior manager who has run budgets and has energy and drive as well as sound judgement. On top of a strong track record in an operational position, you’ll have the breadth of experience to lead our performance and risk management, monitoring and evaluation, people strategy and HR, IT and data protection infrastructure. You’ll have experience in fundraising and funder management, and able to lead on funding applications, reports and other administration. You’ll be able to build systems that work for a small, but growing and dynamic organisation. You’ll be a clear analytical thinker who will strengthen the leadership of the organisation. You will be an excellent manager of people, and have the patience to work with and oversee challenging individuals who come from unique and difficult backgrounds. Finally, you will be excited about working in an organisation with a unique mission that strives to make a difference in the lives of some of the most disadvantaged young people in London.

The closing date for applicants is on the 11th November 2019.
