Part-time Business Manager for a Clapham Old Town-based research consultancy; 1 to 2 days per week and/or compressed days; £40,000 pa, pro rata.

Director looking to hand over day-to-day operational responsibilities, including personnel/HR, finance, IT, marketing, recruitment, 'outreach', etc.

The successful applicant need not be a subject-matter expert on every dimension of the role – it is a generalist position. However, given that a considerable element of the job will involve dealing with consultants to the business, the applicant should be civilised and approachable.

The role would presumably suit a mum – probably living in the area – who is looking to get back into the workplace on a part-time basis. Service sector experience, in which used to dealing with project-based, billable-hours type work (and thus understand how to maintain efficiencies in such businesses) would potentially be helpful, as would a familiarity with management accounts. Experience of having been involved in the management of small businesses would also be of interest, as would being vaguely tech-savvy. Familiarity with MS Office essential.

Please send a CV and a short cover note explaining why you think you might be suitable for the role to, using the reference ‘MA-OM-2019’ in the email subject line.

We are, unfortunately, only able to acknowledge those applications taken forward to interview.

Closing date for applications 23 August; interviewing in early September (if anyone applies!).

Registered office is 27 Old Gloucester St (Holborn); physical office Clapham Old Town (Wingate Business Exchange).
