Operations Director

The Operations Director role is a re-scoped role in order to contain it to a more manageable commitment.  LIM has always had a Director, but we feel that programme development deserves particular attention at this time.  The Operations Director will therefore be responsible for the delivery of the programme.


  • Supervising the delivery of an online and in person programme by managing a planning cycle to time and on budget.
  • Ensuring processes are in place to support the implementation of events.
  • Ensuring the appropriate policies are in place to secure the health and safety of events.
  • Sharing hosting of events with team.
  • Supervising the recruitment, training and management of event volunteers (by the Events Manager).
  • Line management of the Events Manager (a part time contractor)

What we’re looking for

  • Knowledge of the Insight meditation tradition, London Insight Meditation  and a commitment to personal practice.
  • Some experience in  operational management (ideally, but not necessarily, in a charity environment that relies on volunteers) and comfortable in a leadership role.
  • Experience managing contractors and other suppliers.
  • Willingness to collaborate as part of a decentralised team managing LIM’s programming, marketing, IT support, finance, etc.
