Business Ops Associate


Business Ops Associate

The Business Ops Committee will meet briefly (virtually) as a group once a month and is chaired by the Chief Operating Officer who sits on the Board of Directors. The committee consists of Managers, Officers and Associates and will include members of the University Societies who have financial responsibilities. Managers and Officers have a defined portfolio of responsibilities that they lead and coordinate - and it is expected they may lead their own subcommittees (eg. finance) and/or attend relevant meetings of other committees (eg. HR and Comms to attend the Recruitment and Training committee during the PW recruitment period).

If you are interested in a specialist career in finance, project management, consultancy, HR, communications of ICT there are specific roles for you on this committee where you can develop your practice. Alternatively, if you are interested in progressing to a managerial, operational or leadership role in any organisation, volunteering on the Business Ops Committee will expose you to the key support areas found in any business, charity, social enterprise or public sector body and will enable you to develop skills and experience relevant to senior roles in all organisations. This is a great opportunity to develop these competencies early in your career.
