We're recruiting our first Director of Operations & Finance (Joint Chief Exec)

Woodcraft Folk is the UK’s co-operative children and young people’s movement. As we head towards our centenary in 2025, we’re recruiting new volunteers, opening our doors in new communities and expanding our small network of outdoor activity centres. Our support systems and infrastructure need an overhaul to meet the needs of an increasingly dispersed staff team supporting over 3,000 volunteers to run over 300 local groups all over the country.

We’re looking for a co-operative, systems-minded individual to lead the transformation of our operational infrastructure and build on almost a century of youth-led governance. You’ll need to be comfortable with complex finances, HR, and IT. You’ll be committed to partnership working inside and outside the organisation and share our commitment to empowering young people, fighting discrimination, engaging with nature and achieving education for social change.

Focusing on our governance, financial systems, HR and other operational infrastructure, the Director of Operations and Finance (Joint Chief Executive) is a new role, developed to reflect the co-operative nature of Woodcraft Folk. Working closely with the Director of Development (Joint Chief Executive) and our engaged Trustees, you will update, develop and maintain the infrastructure which supports our volunteers and young members to deliver our charitable objects
