JOB VACANCY: People & Planet – Operations Manager

Role summary: This is an exciting opportunity to join People & Planet as a central driver of our support team. We have a powerful team of campaigners and movement builders supporting our national student network to achieve extraordinary wins for social and climate justice. But behind them sits our brilliant support team. We are looking an Operations Manager who is passionate about the cause, but equally about providing seamless and efficient working environment to help us win. We need someone who is highly organised, meticulously detailed but action-oriented to keep this amazing team functioning at its peak. We operate in a non-hierarchical structure and so we are ideally looking for someone with relevant or transferable experience in this area too.

People & Planet particularly encourages applications from people from ethnic minority backgrounds, trans people, queer people, people with disabilities and people with caring responsibilities and other groups typically under-represented in campaigning organisations. We are committed to make reasonable adjustments to enable any candidate to show their suitability for a role within People & Planet.

We’re a small, friendly team who work creatively and flexibly together to achieve our goals of empowering students to campaign for social and environmental justice. Many of us work part-time from our East Oxford office. Unlike most organisations, People & Planet does not have a CEO or single Director. The management team of Co-Directors runs the organisation collaboratively with oversight from our trustee board which is made up of a majority of elected students. On completion of a successful 3 month probation period you will be elected to the position of Co-Director and will take a share of the leadership responsibilities.
