Operations Manager (OM) / Director of Operations (DO)
Reporting to the Executive Director, the Director of Operations is a hands-on manager who loves to build organisational systems and capacity in support of project and programme staff working to implement COHRED’s Strategy.
We are looking for a person who has at least 10 years experience in general management in preferably both private and non-profit sectors at senior or executive levels, and, preferably, in the international environment in low and middle income countries as well. As a small, international non-profit and non-governmental organisation that is beginning to transform parts of its operations into a social enterprise, we are looking for a creative person who can manage our current operations and administration, and help lead change for impact, and build COHRED’s capacity in the management of financial, human resource, logistics and other administrative systems, and can help build up the social enterprise component of COHRED. Creating a culture of measurable performance and finding solutions by design thinking is expected. An MBA or equivalent education is essential.
The incumbent will be passionate about our mission, culturally sensitive, process-oriented, a team player with inspiring leadership style and a vision to scale an organisation like ours. She or he will be comfortable in multi-tasking, and scout for and develop opportunities to increase our efficiency, impact and visibility globally, with clients and donors. She or he may be young but can also be retired and looking to make a contribution to a better world now. Knowledge of the field in which we operate, the key actors and trends is essential, and ability to place COHRED at the heart of this is core to this job.
The location of the job can be Geneva or any other location where it will be possible to come to Geneva frequently without this increasing costs significantly. Willingness to travel and support our units outside Geneva is a basic requirement.
COHRED offers a competitive salary for the non-profit sector but we do not offer a financial bonus scheme nor stock options. Instead, we contribute a great team and a great cause to your remuneration package that will make work meaningful and a pleasure, if not an addiction.
