LandWorks is a ground-breaking independent charity which transforms the lives of ex-offenders and significantly reduces reoffending rates by providing a supported route back into employment and the community for those shortly to leave or have just left prison. Our successes since start-up 5 years ago have been recognised by central government and ignited a level of interest within the justice system disproportionate to the size of our enterprise.

We sadly must now find a replacement for our incumbent Ops Manager who is going travelling, having helped us grow from a good idea to an inspirational communal enterprise where trainees are positively engaged in a range of commercial and learning activities from landscaping to woodworking, market gardening to pottery.

This role is based just outside of Totnes on the beautiful Dartington Estate where we have built our own workshops, communal space and offices so it’s all very informal but energy, passions and a ‘can-do’ attitude prevail. This defines what we are all about and also therefore the profile and character of the person who will thrive in this role.

You will be responsible for managing the core functions of the charity on a day-to-day basis reporting to the Project Director who you would deputise for in his absence. This includes management of the project’s commercial operations, fundraising, marketing and communications, database management, finance and accounting, HR and sales administration plus all other aspects of charity administration.

You will ideally be helping to run, or have run, a small commercial or not-for-profit enterprise where your energy, drive and determination coupled with a strong desire to get things right and do things right, organisational talent and ability to juggle numerous and diverse tasks has made a real and demonstrable difference. In addition any experience of writing funding applications (or similar) would be very beneficial.

If this opportunity excites you then please email your CV accompanied by a letter, explaining why and how you would add real value to LandWorks, to our retained consultants Mego Employment Ltd at
