Smart Works is volunteer-powered and exists to empower all women who need help getting into work. As such, a fantastic opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and focused individual to take on the pivotal role of being the Head of Smart Works Greater Manchester. Reporting to the Chair of the Trustee Board, the role is responsible for the management and operations of our two locations, in Stockport and in Manchester city.

In practice, this involves managing a small staff team to ensure they are thriving in their roles, who in turn orchestrate all activities of our volunteers. It also includes representing our charity to a range of stakeholders across the region, contributing to our ambitious clients targets and unlocking vital funds to deliver the Three-Year Plan. The Head of Smart Works Greater Manchester must build strong working relationships with the staff team and identify opportunities for continuous improvement across our functional areas.

We are seeking a proactive self-starter, with experience of line management and producing operational reports. Good attention to detail, managing multiple priorities to tight deadlines and outstanding interpersonal skills are essential.

It is an exciting time to join Smart Works Greater Manchester as we are in a significant growth phase, aiming to double the number of unemployed women per year we support to 10,000 by 2025.
