Edinburgh World Heritage is looking to appoint an Operations & Finance Manager who is responsible for managing the operation of the charity, leading on the delivery of finance, governance, HR and office objectives to enable the organisation to run smoothly and efficiently. The post-holder also advises and supports the Board on all governance matters.
Part of the Senior Management Team, the Operations & Finance Manager supports the Director and other senior managers in the leadership and direction of the charity, helping to formulate and execute the organisational strategy and ensuring that Edinburgh World Heritage meets the goals of the integrated business plan and organisational outcomes.
Edinburgh World Heritage is an independent charity with the aim of ensuring the city’s World Heritage status is a dynamic force that benefits everyone. Our mission is to connect people to their heritage in everything we do – whether through the conservation of historic buildings, delivering improvements to the public realm, or engaging people directly with the rich heritage of their city through events and membership programmes.
Reporting to: Manager
The hours of work will be from Monday to Friday 09:30 hours to 16:30 hours with 30 minutes for lunch. Although some days work is expected to take place in the office this can, nevertheless, be flexible and homeworking will be considered if appropriate.
This post is very much performance-based and the successful candidate will be expected to deliver on ambitious fundraising and marketing targets as agreed with the manager on an annual basis but they will be reviewed regularly.
The successful applicant will be expected to deliver funding to not only fund the charity in the short-term but to financially develop and sustain the charity into the future adapting policies and strategies in cooperation with the manager as the charity develops.
The stark inequality over who gets Covid-19 vaccines has shocked the world. While countries like our own expect to be fully vaccinated by the end of the year, others are being vaccinated so slowly that even frontline health workers remain unprotected.
At the heart of this inequality is a system which puts profits ahead of human life. The knowledge behind the vaccines should be treated as a public good, but instead is monopolised by big business, limiting production and perpetuating a ‘vaccine apartheid’. We are campaigning to change that.
We’re looking for a campaign lead who can take this work to the next level: staying on top of fast moving events, spotting campaign opportunities, developing our policy, and helping organise campaign actions and develop media interest.
The people’s vaccine is currently our highest profile campaign, where real change is possible. We’re seeking an excellent communicator who can combine an eye for detail and strategic insight, with the ability to convey what is often technical policy in easy-to-understand language.
The successful applicant will be part of a global coalition, coordinating work in the UK and beyond. The day-to-day work will be varied and fast-paced, from lobbying politicians and analysing developments, to appearing on national broadcast media and leading protests.
You will have substantial experience of running campaigns and developing policy; excellent written and oral communication skills; the ability to work with people from different organisations and different countries; and a strong commitment to Global Justice Now’s mission.
If you are interested in the post and believe you meet our requirements, we would really like to hear from you.
We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of ethnicity, but as members of Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups are currently under-represented in the organisation we particularly encourage applications from BAME candidates. Appointment will be based on merit alone.
We offer 26 days holiday a year (pro-rata for part-time) and flexible working.
This post is based in our London or Edinburgh office. At present most staff are working from home, and we expect continuing high levels of home working in future.
The Prince’s Foundation provides holistic solutions to challenges facing the world today. We champion a sustainable approach to how we live our lives and build our communities, we run a diverse programme of education and training for all ages and backgrounds, and we regenerate and care for places where communities thrive and that visitors enjoy.
We work nationally and internationally but at the heart of our organisation is the heritage-led regeneration of the Dumfries House estate and its wider community, where our principles and philosophies are explored and put into practice.
The work of The Prince’s Foundation is inspired by The Prince of Wales’s philosophy of harmony: that by understanding the balance, the order and the relationships between ourselves and the natural world we can create a more sustainable future.
Programmes take place within and beyond the charity’s sites, including at Dumfries House, with its Education Farm, STEM centre and Health and Wellbeing Centre, and in Shoreditch, East London and Trinity Buoy Wharf in Tower Hamlets, London.
STEM Programme: The STEM programme is delivered through practical hands on workshops, family events and teacher training within five key themes: Aerospace, Renewable Energy, Environmental Science, Food Science and Sustainable Design, these themes make the most of the existing expertise in the wider Prince’s Foundation, as well as the local large engineering employers. A standard day’s work would involve setting up, delivering, and clearing up workshops from 9am-3pm, with time for programme development, planning and other activities in afternoons and non-school days.
Due to themes and existing expertise on the estate a candidate with a background in physics, engineering or digital technologies would be at an advantage. The candidate should however be comfortable teaching a wide range of STEM to a primary and early secondary school level, with support from the wider Education team and Industry experts.
The wider education programme on Dumfries House Estate is delivered across themes including: STEM; Food, Farming and Horticulture; Outdoor Activity; Textiles and Building Crafts. Due to the holistic nature of the programme, the post holder will be required to assist in these areas from time to time, take part in CPD in these areas and work with colleagues across the education team on cross curricular education projects.
The post holder will assist in the development and implementation of workshops, industry training programmes, short courses and project related education activity including large scale events and cross curricular delivery. The post holder will also prepare and deliver classes across a range of ages as well as maintaining stakeholder relationships with industry and education partners.
