The main staff post in our new Brixton Windmill Centre will be the BDM, who will manage the transformation that FoWG will achieve through two years of Power to Change (PTC) funding.
The successful candidate will have a demonstrable understanding of the need to marry a commercial approach with FoWG’s community focus and will have strong project management experience. They will use their excellent interpersonal skills to build close and productive working relationships with colleagues, volunteers, trustees, members, businesses and local community stakeholders in order to methodically implement our business plan. Reporting regularly to our board and working closely with our chair they will develop clear workplans and lead staff and volunteers to achieve them.
They will develop our financial management culture by budget monitoring and contributing to financial forecasting and reporting. A collaborative approach is needed to get the best out of paid employees and enhance the experience of volunteers, who are driven by a passion for heritage and community as much as business requirements.
The DBM will use a creative approach to generate income as well as engaging people in the growing workstreams that make up our sustainable business, strongly managing each element to achieve required outcomes. With an outward facing focus s/he will lead changes in our marketing relationships and website attracting institutions and users to purchase more. This will be under-pinned by internal work to include both our offer (e.g. updating educational materials) and business processes.
They will ensure that the organisation accounts to trustees and Power to Change for progress with accurate written analysis and reports bringing emerging challenges to trustees so that they can assess risks and ensure timely delivery.
Interviews: Thursday October 10th
