You will manage and set-up the organisational systems, processes and culture that underpin all of our work. The role’s seniority shows how important this work is to NEON and the status with which we hold it. This will look like building and training staff to implement the human systems that help people work together: decision making, information sharing, resource allocation, giving kind and constructive feedback and handling conflict. NEON’s culture and commitment to anti-oppression is at the very core of all of our work. This role will ensure the systems and strategies are in place to maintain and refresh our culture and implement anti-oppression across all of our work. This role will also develop a system for building the staff management and leadership competencies required for high performance, role modelling NEON’s values and enacting our commitment to anti-oppression. You will manage the Operations Hub of 4 people, building on existing operational systems in finance, HR and programme management to integrate the latest practice and tools. You will support the Operations Hub to train and upskill staff members in our programmatic Hubs on the core operational skills they need to implement their programmes to a consistently high standard, e.g. in budgeting, monitoring and evaluation. Where appropriate you will draw on your own skills and experience to coach participants on NEON’s programmes on organisational development. Operations for NEON aren’t just a service for other teams, they inform the very nature of the work we do and help define our approach to change. As a result, NEON’s values of generosity, solidarity and respect and our commitment to anti-oppression should be embedded in all of our operations. As a capacity building organisation, in time, you will also support our membership to apply some of our own best practice into their organisations, helping to scale the impact of our work.
