Brief job description:
Made In Hackney opened its doors in 2012 as the UK’s first fully vegan community cookery school. We became an independent charity in 2018 and collaborate with communities to showcase and develop skills, knowledge and inspiration to grow, cook and eat more plants.

In March 2020 we paused our usual programme to launch a Covid19 response of online classes, telephone support for those not online, and an emergency direct to door community meal service. At the peak of the crisis we provided 500 meals a day across Hackney direct to households who needed support. Today we continue to provide meals and hope to be able to do so for as long as there is need. We aim to incorporate training and jobs for local young people into the community meal service.

We are seeking a highly motivated and strategically minded individual to become our next Operations Manager. You will have experience of working in a similar role in the areas of operations, HR and governance. You will help the charity comply with health and safety requirements, safeguarding best practice and data protection and lead in developing organisational policies.

You will have a passion and flair for improving operational processes and efficiency, administering CRMs, and monitoring and evaluation to ensure we operate in the most effective way. You will not shy away from problem solving operational challenges and thrive in supporting the core team (of 9 staff) to ensure the smooth running and ongoing development of the organisation. We appreciate you may not have all the experience outlined in each category below but if you excel in a few key areas please still apply.

The experience of working for Made in Hackney is varied, unique and rewarding. There is plenty of room for the successful candidate to be creative and bring new ideas for developing services.
