The purpose of this role is to: Lead and manage NEON’s Ops Hub (what we call teams) so that our systems are all working smoothly and our team is happy, high-performing and cared for. Lead operational, culture, anti-oppression and “People” projects (we like to use “People” rather than “HR” since we go well beyond traditional HR). Help steer NEON by playing an active role in Directors Group (our equivalent of a Senior Leadership Team) which is made up of the Directors from Movement Building and Comms Hubs, and the Executive Directors


Hybrid working - London and remote. Our flexible working policy requires everyone to be in the office roughly 25% of the time as a minimum because building in-person relationships is important to us (that could be one week a month, or a day or two a week), but you’re welcome to be there more



Contract type



Full-time, which for NEON is 28 hours a week. This can be done over 4 or 5 days, that’s totally up to you. Hours are generally flexible, with some core meetings everyone has to be at.


7.5% employer matched pension after probation; flexible hours and hybrid working across our office and remotely; a 28-hour week with no change to pay; 20 days holiday per year (plus bank holidays and Christmas break when the office is shut); generous staff development package; a caring and learning culture that takes anti-oppression seriously

Reporting to

Executive Director. We have a co-Director model, so your line manager would be the Executive Director: Organisational Development but you’d work closely with both Executive Directors


The Ops “Hub” (our word for team) which consists of 4 people including you (and likely to increase to at least 5) and a freelance Bookkeeper. You’d directly line manage a Senior Finance Manager, and an Ops & People Manager
