Salary: 30,000 to 33,000 per annum


Every day TCV works across the UK to create healthier and happier communities for everyone - communities where our activities have a lasting impact on people's health, prospects and outdoor places.


Being an Operations Leader in TCV provides the opportunity to enable people and communities to improve their health, prospects and outdoor places and makes a real difference to local green spaces.

We are looking for someone who can lead and manage a portfolio of exciting projects, budgets and operations and lead a great team of staff including the delivery and growth of our partnership with the National Forrest.

You will be able to develop excellent relationships with funders and partners and create compelling and supported project proposals. You will effectively manage funder requirements to achieve our desired outcomes.


A bit more about us:

We recognise that each community and the people living there have different needs. Whether improving wellbeing, conserving a well-loved outdoor space or bringing people together to promote social cohesion and combat loneliness, TCV works together with communities to deliver practical solutions to the real life challenges they face.


For over 50 years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all.


Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.


A full, clean or near clean UK driving licence is required for this post, which has been held for a minimum of one year.


Closing date for completed applications is 5.00pm 16/08/2018
