Foundation Positions

Director of Operations

The Legal Education Foundation is seeking a Director of Operations.

This is a newly created role, responsible to the Chief Executive and the post holder will be a member of the Senior Management Team (SMT). This is an especially exciting time to join the Foundation as we build on our existing programmes and initiatives as well as harness the opportunities of our extensive collaboration and our growing networks of influence.

In line with our new strategic plan, the organisation has grown from eight staff in 2013, to 20 which has brought with it the need to invest in our processes, systems and structures, to ensure these meet the changing needs of the Foundation.

The overall purpose of the role is to work with colleagues across the organisation to develop and oversee effective and efficient HR, administrative, IT, finance and operational policies, systems and services to support delivery of the Foundation’s strategy, and to ensure that these policies, systems and support services uphold the Foundation’s culture and values.
