The Operational Manager is a crucial leadership role sitting within the Unitas Youth Zone Senior Leadership Team. Reporting to the CEO you will be responsible for closely supporting the co-ordination, planning and delivery of an exceptional 7 day per week youth offer across key areas of operational delivery including centre-based activity, satellite hub delivery and digital engagement.
Working positively, collaboratively and at pace with an enthusiastic and energetic team, you will also seek to ensure that our offer is contemporary, quality assured and that it reflects the wishes, needs and views of young people. You will be comfortable being a unifying figure, yet able to pivot and deliver feedback, both positive and negative, taking difficult decisions and communicating these with ease; all for the collective benefit of young people and the charitable organisation.
You will hold line management responsibility for a number of staff, seeking to ensure that there is strong evidence of effective performance management in line with our vision, mission, values, and strategic objectives and that our team are afforded continuing professional development opportunity; all through the prism of a culture of High Support and High Challenge. You will need to be a big voice within a large team owning and demonstrating a strong ethos, commitment, and dedication to improving the lives of children and young people and uniting them to fulfil their full potential.
