Operations Lead (FLIC)

at Financial Times

London

The role

This is a crucial and varied role supporting all functions of the recently-formed charity; from fundraising to content to partnership-building, alongside some administrative support duties for the Executive Director. Your time will be split approximately 2 days per week assisting the content team (data and evaluation, improving and maintaining the Learning Hub, research) and an additional 2 days per week supporting the fundraising and partnership leads with logistics, distribution and contact management. Approximately 1 day per week, split into 1-2 hours each day, will be spent supporting the Executive Director with administrative tasks including research, email, diary and financial management.

We’re looking for someone who will increase the efficiency of existing processes and procedures and maintain constant communication with the team to ensure smooth operations of the charity.

This role will be required 3 days in the FT offices in St Paul’s, and 2 days working from home.

The salary range for this role is between £30k-35k dependent on experience.

 

The organisation

The FT Financial Literacy and Inclusion Campaign (FLIC), the fast-expanding financial literacy charity founded by the Financial Times, promotes financial literacy where it is needed most to have a significant, sustainable societal impact. The charity has been working at the grassroots with young people in schools, gig economy workers and online learning environments across the UK, as well as on a policy level by pursuing lobbying campaigns, with the mission of making a dent in the global scandal of financial illiteracy.

About FT FLIC’s activities

It’s our aim to democratise financial education by providing free and engaging content to those who need it most: young people, women, and disenfranchised groups.

FT FLIC has developed a comprehensive spiral financial literacy curriculum for secondary schools catering for a range of learning styles and abilities, with input from FT journalists, teachers and beneficiaries. The content includes discussion, reflection and dynamic videos co-created with selected influencers. FT FLIC has also built a programme for adult learners from disenfranchised communities offering bespoke money management tools to help address modern ways of working. We are proud of how this project addresses new realities of working, moving away from ‘one man, one salary’ and helping adults manage variable incomes and plan for lean periods.
