Job Advert: Operational Manager

At Depression Alliance we're going through a period of growth and development to enable us to be in a stronger position to support people with depression throughout the UK.

We have completed a 3 year business plan and we are launching a significant new service, Friends in Need, next summer. We are delighted that this has created a career opportunity for an experienced Operational Manager who wants to be part of an organisation that is about to develop and grow. It’s an opportunity to be a part of something truly amazing.

Our three year (2013 to 2015) strategic plan sets ambitious objectives. It aims to:

  • build a huge community network for people with depression
  • provide effective range of support options and promote well being services
  • to provide accessible good quality information about the condition

As a member of our DA Team, you’ll work closely with the Chief Executive and Board of Trustees and be ultimately responsible for operational issues ranging from staff management to income generation.

You’ll help us make the best use of our resources by achieving the highest levels of efficiency and accountability. You’ll support the CEO on the implementation of all aspects of the strategic plan.

To be successful you’ll need to be a champion of our values, mission and ways of working. Your record in a senior role shows you have a strong understanding of management in a developing organisation. It will show that you are skilled at getting the best from staff and a wide range of other people and that you are ready for an exciting challenge to improve services for people with depression and save lives.
