07 Jan Finance Innovation Lab, Chief Operating Officer

Function: NGO / Charity Operations Salary: £50,000 Location: London

The Finance Innovation Lab works for a financial system that serves people and planet – one that’s democratic, responsible and fair. We incubate the ideas and people with the potential to transform the system, and we advocate for changes in the rules that shape the way finance works.

We’re a unique charity with a global reputation as a pioneer in systems change. Our work is driven by the belief that the dysfunctions of our financial system contribute to some of our most pressing social and environmental challenges, but that it doesn’t have to be this way: people created the system and people can change it.

Working closely with the CEO, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) will focus on turning strategic vision into effective delivery, as well as taking responsibility for the smooth running of the Lab’s organisational processes. The COO will also lead our financial strategy, with a particular focus on diversifying our income streams. In all of their work and relationships, the COO will reflect the unique nature of the Lab’s approach to financial systems change and will act in line with our values of collaboration, action learning and empowerment.

The role is based in the Lab’s creative office space in Kings Cross, with flexible working hours and scope for remote or home-working some of the time. We also welcome applications from candidates wishing to job share, either individually or in a pair.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a very special organisation with a talented, passionate team, a thriving community of innovators, intrapreneurs and advocates, and a reputation for courageous programmes that embody our values.
