CLOSED We’re recruiting! Operations and Project Manager (maternity cover)


Are you highly organised with strong project management skills and the ability to support the internal operations of a small but dynamic company? Are you passionate about collaborating and engaging others as part of Bristol’s fast and fair response to climate and nature crises?

About the role

The Interim Operations & Project Manager will be joining Bristol Green Capital Partnership at an exciting time, helping to boost citywide efforts in response to the climate and ecological emergencies. As a 9-month maternity cover role, they will be responsible for overseeing the delivery of the Black & Green Ambassadors programme during this time and helping to manage the organisation’s day-to-day operations and programme delivery as part of a small, dynamic and energetic team.

Working closely with the Chief Operating Officer, this person will support the smooth running of the organisation’s finance, operations and HR processes. In addition, they will undertake line management responsibilities and work closely with the broader team to support the Partnership’s core programme of activities, including regular Green Mingles and Partnership Gatherings and business planning, development, and income generation activities.

One of their main areas of work will be project managing the delivery of the Black & Green Ambassadors programme, which will be in the second year of its three-year programme, working in close collaboration with project partner Ujima Radio CIC. This will involve planning and managing the programme to ensure that it is delivering its objectives within budget and agreed timeframes and reporting to grant funders and sponsors. They will also work closely with the Chief Operating Officer and key partners at Ujima Radio to develop the programme and maximise funding and sponsorship opportunities.

As a role that covers both day-to-day operational responsibilities and project management, this will suit someone with strong time management skills and the ability to manage competing priorities – being able to provide consistent and ongoing support to ensure the smooth internal operations of the community interest company whilst managing a varied project workload and range of development opportunities presented by the Black & Green Ambassadors programme.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate project management and budget management experience, the confidence to work with a broad range of stakeholders at different levels, the ability to problem-solve with a proactive and adaptable approach, and a passion for ensuring that collaboration and partnership working remains at the heart of project delivery.

The role can either be part-time (0.8 days / 28hrs per week) or full time (35hrs per week), for a minimum of 9 months. We are reviewing applications on a rolling basis and encourage people to apply ASAP.
