Full Job Description

About CACE

CACE is a trusted community resource which has been operating in the Cumbernauld and Northern Corridor areas for over 30 years. We work to prevent loneliness and isolation, supporting older people and their carers to live well in the community on their own terms. We do this through a programme of activities, groups, and outings, door-to-door community transport, and a well-established befriending programme.


About the role

We are looking for someone meticulous, versatile and values-led to join us as Operations Manager. This role encompasses all aspects of charity management and is an exciting opportunity to help shape and deliver our strategy. The post may suit someone looking to expand their skillset and step into their first senior role, or someone already experienced, perhaps from another sector but with transferrable expertise that they’d like to bring to a small charity.


Working to support our CEO across all aspects of running the charity, the Operations Manager will have delegated responsibility for a range of key business areas, including finance, HR, governance, fundraising, and evaluation. The post requires significant adaptability but offers the right person a fulfilling and varied role that will include people management, coordinating co-design projects, securing major funding, developing new internal processes and contributing to strategic financial decision making. Although the postholder will have the opportunity to shape and develop the role, the initial focus areas will be finance and fundraising. As such, a good understanding of charity finances is essential, as is the ability to understand a potential funder’s requirements and write a compelling case for the work we do.


More information on the role and a detailed person specification is available via the Apply button.


We welcome applications from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences.
