ReCOM provides IT training (largely through our experienced and skilled volunteer network) to help unemployed people who are looking for work as well as helping others in the Solihull/Birmingham area gain greater independence by developing IT skills and accessing the internet.

We now have a unique opportunity to join us as Operations Manager and to manage ReCOM’s operational activity in line with its charitable aims. This will involve both adapting existing Digital Inclusion services as well as developing new opportunities to meet the challenges presented by the Covid pandemic; working with the Trustees to develop a new business plan. You will play a lead role in securing grant funding and in developing our activity base so that we can assist even more individuals in need.

Based at our office in Olton, you will lead a small team of part-time staff and will have overall responsibility for several sessional trainers as well as our skilled volunteers. We very much want to attract the right person for this role and are prepared to flex the number of working hours, based on the personal requirement of the successful candidate. The minimum number of hours that will need to be worked are 20 hours over four normal working days, but this is likely to increase as activity levels rise.

To be successful in this role, you will have:
• Previous general management experience in the voluntary sector – either as a trustee, employee or volunteer;
• A proven track record of acquiring grant funding;
• Experience of developing projects/services from concept to successful delivery
• Experience of using social media in a work context.

Most importantly you will possess the personal drive and energy that makes things happen.
