Job Vacancy:
Head of Operations & People

We’re on the lookout for a Head of Operations & People!

Our programme has been impacting children’s literacy since 2011, and we know we can deliver that impact on-line, through our Virtual Ship. Our work in Hackney is foundational, while the Virtual Ship has the potential to reach far across the UK, especially to more rural and coastal communities where the educational attainment gap is wider and more persistent.

To successfully increase our reach, we need to develop the Virtual Ship, continue our transformation into a digital-first organisation, and nurture a high-performing team.

This is a new senior role in the organsation so we are looking for someone who has experience developing digital products, understands the interplay between systems and processes and getting the best out of people, and the importance of sustaining a positive organisational culture. In other words, someone who understands people, is curious about digital and tech, and other people love to work with.

Salary:£50,000 (inc. London weighting)
Contract Type:Full-time, permanent (35 hours per week, with core hours of 11am-7pm, Monday to Friday with a commitment to flexible working requests)
Location:Hackney and home working, or completely remote with travel to Hackney monthly
Application Deadline:9am Wed 26th June 2024
Stage One Interviews:Online between 9am to 2pm on Thursday 4th July 2024
Stage Two Interviews:Online between 2pm to 6pm on Wednesday 10th July 2024

A final part of the process will take place in-person with an interview by Young Pirates and a chance to meet more of the team.
Start Date:1st Sept 2024 and after successful completion of a DBS
