Operations manager


Working with the ops director in the UK delivering the technical, financial and operational infrastructure of a number of early stage businesses – including, and


  • English as a first language
  • Organised – need to be able to multitask and be very comfortable being thrown jobs which are “hard” (i.e. they require initiative and tenacity) e.g. find out how we become FCA approved to offer small loans)
  • Motivated self-starting – outside morning standups the role isn’t going to get a lot of support – a lot of skype…expect the person to be able to structure their day around whatever the work is
  • Web native – someone who is completely comfortable in the advanced use of the web – installing beta SDKs, using google docs, working with basecamp / trello (or at least not afraid to try)

PA to MD

  • Working with the MD of System Two picking up all logistical and operational work to maximise the efficiency of my time
  • Anything from making sure our ZEC application is on track, to paying HMRC and invoices, to scheduling my diary etc – may well be some personal admin as well


  • English as a first language
  • Good on the web and tech – not a “geek” but someone who is comfortable using cloud-based services and working through the web
  • Initiative – a lot of the work will be solving complicated issues which will need thought and a proactive mindset – I want someone who can take the initiative – think through the next steps of a problem and present solutions.

  1. Hi Alex,
    My name is Cheryl and we are moving to GC in December. I am currently working as an operations manager for a language school in Brighton and I would be really interested in anything along these lines.
    Thank you
