Attitude is Everything

Location: London

Remuneration: £39,000 pro rate + 10% employer contribution pension



Attitude is Everything is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity to join the charity’s senior management team as Director of Operations. This role has been created as part of the restructure of Attitude is Everything from April 2018 onwards, when the organisation enters a new Arts Council England funding period and becomes a Sector Support Organisation.

To enable the current Chief Executive Officer to focus on shaping the organisation’s position and influence within the music industry and leading on public affairs, the new role of Director of Operations will work closely with the Staff Executive Team and the Board, sharing their passion and motivation for the work of Attitude is Everything. The Director of Operations will be able to demonstrate team leadership skills at senior management level – having the capacity to lead Attitude is Everything & make independent decisions in the absence of the Chief Executive Officer. The successful candidate will take senior responsibility for managing the staff team as well as managing a significant budget.

We are looking for candidates with 5 years’ experience of managing finance and operations at a senior level in the charity sector and/or in an arts and culture environment. Candidates will need to demonstrate strong financial management skills, with experience of financial reporting, annual budgeting, long-term forecasting and overseeing day-to-day financial management, as well as supporting staff, Board and external stakeholders to understand financial matters. We also wish to appoint someone with exceptional operational management skills and a strong track-record in supporting and improving HR processes in a small charitable organisation.

This is the perfect role for someone who is highly organised, meticulous and proactive. This is an opportunity to join a highly respected, innovative and creative charity that is growing as an organisation, and contribute your skills to driving forward positive change across the music industry.
