Are you an exceptional operations manager, who’s experienced in humanitarian start-ups? Are you passionate about helping people impacted by humanitarian crises? Are you interested in joining an exciting new initiative, which will promote collaboration between the humanitarian sector and UK leaders in science, technology, and innovation?
We are looking to recruit an Operations Manager for the UK Humanitarian Innovation Hub, with a focus on managing finance, HR, work plans, grants and administration.
