Job Opportunity: Operational Manager

Monkey Park is a volunteer-led social enterprise that runs a local community hub including a cafe, coworking office, meeting spaces & a cycle workshop which renovates donated bicycles. Monkey Park is controlled by local people & provides the services that they need. Any profits made in the social enterprise are returned to the local area through provision of community services. Monkey Park is a friendly place to meet your neighbours and stop for a chat but it also offers important services to the local  community such as help to start a business. Lots of community events are organised in the hub – it intends to be led by local people & to help them to bring new services into the local area. The project has to date been led by volunteer directors managing three members of cafe staff, a cleaner & a bike workshop coordinator as part time paid positions. The voluntary directors’ panel will continue to provide the core steering & direction of the organisation. However as the project  has grown, they need an operational manager to be an on-site face of the organisation, performing many of the day to day managerial tasks & ensuring that the whole building is running optimally.
The operational manager will also need to manage the marketing of the services, activities, spaces & events at the hub in order to grow the income – with particular attention to filling the office workspace (income from which pays for the hub overheads).
The hub is currently open Monday-Friday for office workspace and Wednesday-Saturday for the cafe space. Space may be rented out at other times & we also run many popup events & services throughout the week.
Te r m s & C o n d i t i o n s
This post is funded by Power to Change Foundation to help the Monkey Park Community Hub become more sustainable over the longer term.
The post will be full time, but we are open to conversations about flexible working and job sharing.
Wages based on a full time (37 hours/week) post holder will be £23,000 per annum plus a contributory pension according to the NEST auto-enrolment scheme (initially 1% employer contribution rising in future years). Part time or job sharing flexibility will mean that these rates will be reduced pro rata. Staff & volunteers can ask for 20% discount in the community hub. Holiday leave will be accrued at the rate of 0.12 hours per hour worked.
Terms & conditions will be formally reviewed along with performance on an annual basis.
