Charity Entrepreneurship is a growing research and training program that launches multiple high-impact charities every year in a number of cause areas. We are looking for an Operations Manager to work with our Director of Operations and allow CE and our charities to continue to grow and thrive.


How this role is generating positive impact

People who work in operations have a multiplier effect, increasing the efficiency of their colleagues within the organisation by constructing processes that ensure the organization operates smoothly and at top capacity. For a great overview of Operations Management as a field, see here

We think this role will be suitable for an early to mid-career generalist interested in making Operations Management a long-term career. 

The Operations Team

Our Operation team ranges from 1.2-2.5 FTEs so every member ends up doing a wide diversity of tasks and is expected to be able to perform well across a range of responsibilities. You will be working directly with our Director of Operations and this will allow opportunities for training in a wide range of skills (our Director comes from a legal and NGO operations background).

Key responsibilities:

  • Among a variety of ad hoc tasks and projects, you can expect to regularly work on the following:

  • HR support: Supporting the development and implementation of HR initiatives and systems, providing advice on policies and procedures, assisting in performance management processes, supporting the management of disciplinary and grievance issues, maintaining employee records according to policy and legal requirements, reviewing employment and working conditions to ensure legal compliance.

  • Facilities management: For our Queen’s Park office space: maintaining the productivity of our office space by restocking supplies, arranging repairs, and assisting with establishing co-working protocols (e.g. room bookings, etc). For our residential accommodation: managing bookings and addressing last-minute rearrangements, taking meter readings, organising cleaning and repairs as needed, liaising with the landlord, and achieving quick wins for the residential experience while upholding our frugal spirit.  

  • Event logistics: Organising internal and external events (~15-50 people), contingency planning, determining objectives and conducting post-mortems, assisting Recruitment and Outreach team with logistics needs (e.g., booking travel and accommodation, getting materials to venues).

  • Automating workflows and building internal tools: Identifying opportunities to systematise or automate processes with a view to increasing efficiency; responding to internal calls for greater systematisation (e.g. “we need a CRM”), mapping out costs and benefits; leveraging spreadsheets, Zapier, no-code and low-code tools to build internal systems; maintaining internal systems and refining based on quick feedback loops and user feedback.

In the past, we have offered positions to applicants who had strong overall potential and trained them up in the needed skills.

  • Quick at learning new abilities and processes

  • Highly impact-driven and results-oriented with a strong work ethic

  • Is generally tech-savvy

  • Has a strong sense they would be a fit for this role (ideally by testing it out with some prior experience)

  • Has solid interpersonal skills and can communicate delicate HR issues well

Will you join us?

Our culture


CE is an intense, informal, and flexible working environment. We believe that friendliness and teamwork, a focus on impact and evidence, critical thinking, and warm connections are key workplace values. The 18 of us stay in touch through weekly all-hands team meetings and socials as well as 1:1s during work hours, and have built an active and connected community of charity entrepreneurs and impact focused indidauls. Our office in London is a lively and vibrant hub where recent developments in EA and updates from our charities are as likely to be discussed over lunch as what the 80/20 of dental hygiene looks like, or what the effects of different sleep habits on productivity are. We are united by our relentless pursuit of counterfactual impact and a perhaps slightly excessive love of spreadsheets.

Our goal is to make our application process both time-effective and interesting for you. The application process involves four stages:

  1. submitting our general application form (30 minutes),

  2. a test task simulating the work you would do in your role (2-3 hours),

  3. an initial recorded interview (15 minutes),

  4. a more in-depth test task in other areas of this role (2-3 hours),

  5. a final, more in-depth interview (1 hour), and

  6. a reference check.


Each stage typically takes about ~1 week starting from the end of the application deadline, and we hope to make an offer within ~6 weeks of the application deadline. Ideally, the candidate will begin onboarding as soon afterwards as possible. On request, we offer feedback to candidates who make it far into our process.
