Could you be our new general manager?
May 24, 2017
*** This position has now been filled ***
We're hiring! Could you see yourself managing The Wood Store - Brighton and Hove's popular wood recycling project?
General Manager - Job Description
The Wood Store (Brighton & Hove Wood Recycling Project) is a multi-award winning social enterprise founded in 1998. Our aims are to save resources and to create jobs and training opportunities for local people – especially those who might be considered marginalised from the labour market.
Our activity is based around collecting waste wood mostly from the construction sector. The wood is then sorted and as much as possible is separated for reuse; being sold back to the public for DIY, made into products in our workshop, sold as firewood or passed on for use in power generation.
The Wood Store has been through a period of change and development, but is growing and financially strong. It has a high profile and great reputation, and a hard-working, committed and highly talented workforce of 14.
To better align with its environmental and social aims, the Wood Store has applied for charitable status and the current Director wishes to move away from the day to day running of the business to focus on an impending move to new premises and on the organisation’s longer term strategic development. So there is a vacancy for a hands-on General Manager to lead the enterprise on a day to day basis and help take this pioneering and nationally significant organisation to the next level.
Purpose of the post
The primary purpose of this new full time post is to lead the company managerially and financially on a day to day basis according to our mission and business plan.
Managing Director and Management Board (who will be the Trustees once charitable status has been approved).
