Full time permanent post

We are looking for a dynamic, self-starter with significant experience in the third sector, particularly in the fields of youth employment and community development. The successful candidate will play a key role in driving the organisation’s vision forward in the coming years.

As WorkingRite’s operations grow both in volume and complexity, and with organisational direction evolving to include a commitment to partnership work, additional operation support is required. The purpose of the new post of Operations Manager is to manage the day-to-day operations, delivery and reporting on key projects across the country. It is anticipated that the role will also involve responsibility for key compliance, quality assurance and finance tasks relating to the effective management of WorkingRite’s operations.

WorkingRite is an outstanding charity supporting young people into employment throughout Scotland. We match 16-24 year olds with local businesses for work placements where they learn new skills and gain confidence. It’s a simple deal that works – 80% of young people who complete our programme progress to full-time jobs or apprenticeships.

This is a full time post until March 2022 currently funded by the Henry Smith Charity, based in Edinburgh or Glasgow (dependent on home location of successful candidate).


We require an Operations Manager who can:

• Support, motivate and encourage staff to ensure targets are achieved

• Manage and develop a team of frontline Project Coordinators

• Coordinate and make the best use of limited resources

• Initiate and build successful external relationships at all levels

• Plan an active ‘hands-on’ role in operations


Deadline: 12 noon, Friday 6th September 2019. Interviews to be held on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th September
