We're recruiting our first Director of Operations & Finance (Joint Chief Exec)

Woodcraft Folk is the UK’s co-operative children and young people’s movement. As we head towards our centenary in 2025, we’re recruiting new volunteers, opening our doors in new communities and expanding our small network of outdoor activity centres. Our support systems and infrastructure need an overhaul to meet the needs of an increasingly dispersed staff team supporting over 3,000 volunteers to run over 300 local groups all over the country.

We’re looking for a co-operative, systems-minded individual to lead the transformation of our operational infrastructure and build on almost a century of youth-led governance. You’ll need to be comfortable with complex finances, HR, and IT. You’ll be committed to partnership working inside and outside the organisation and share our commitment to empowering young people, fighting discrimination, and engaging with nature through education for social change.
