We are recruiting! An opportunity for charity management professionals in Bath/Bristol. 


HEAD OF OPERATIONS - 0.5 FTE: £37,000 (pro rata)

Closing Date: 21 May 2021

Trauma Foundation South West (TFSW) is a well-established small charity providing therapeutic services to refugees, asylum seekers and other survivors of war and torture.  Services are provided to clients in Bristol and Bath.  Whilst the therapeutic work is carried out face to face (when possible), the management of the charity is mainly carried out remotely and we do not have office premises.  We have successfully moved to online Trustee meetings and service delivery during COVID-19.

TFSW has been in operation for 20 years, and an independent registered charity since 2002, led by founder Dr Judy Ryde.  Having previously depended on volunteer management, TFSW is now able to transition to a new leadership structure which will include the paid senior leadership role, Head of Operations. 

The Head of Operations is a critical and key new role in the organisation. The successful candidate will work alongside the Clinical Director and will play a defining role in the growth and development of this small Charity. 

We are looking for someone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and work across all aspects of the organisation whilst also thinking strategically about how we best use our resources and ensure continued growth. To succeed in this role, you will be an experienced manager who has worked in a charity or similar social enterprise. You will be strategic, thoughtful and compassionate, with a desire to help expand and improve upon on the charity’s existing work.

You will be the sort of person who gets things done, is comfortable with working across a wide range of operational areas and is excited about the idea of working for a small charity with strong links to its community and client base.

You will be responsible for the growth, sustainability, and legal compliance of the charity.
