Who we are

Peace Direct is an international charity with a big mission: to work with local people to stop violence and build sustainable peace in some of the world’s most conflict affected countries. More than that, we want to change the international system so that it better supports the role that local people and communities play in preventing violence and building and sustaining peace.

The Role

We are looking for an experienced Systems Improvement Manager to join our Finance & Operations team.

As an organisation, we have adapted to home working in the last 18 months and now we are adapting again to a fully flexible, hybrid way of working. We have done all this with our existing suite of digital and IT tools, though we are aware that we are not utilising them to their full potential or consistently using them across the organisation. With hybrid working now the norm, we need strong systems to support this, particularly as our internal requirements for technology that underpin Peace Direct’s growing work is increasing rapidly.

As a result of these changes in our ways of working we have created this new role and are looking for someone with strong experience of reviewing and implementing effective information management and IT systems. You will help to review our information management and security across all of our systems and functions, including: technology, people, policies, procedures and processes.

The ideal candidate is someone who can map, audit and streamline our existing processes, and manage the design and implementation of an integrated set of solutions that is fit for purpose for our team. You should be someone with an analytical mind who enjoys responsibility for overseeing many different aspects of IT operations, infrastructure, service, and delivery.

Peace Direct fully operates a hybrid-based working model and when not working remotely, you will be based in our small, friendly London office. The position is well suited to an individual that is looking to work in a very hands-on role in a welcoming and supportive workplace. We would love to hear from candidates who feel they have the IT skills and attributes to deliver on our wide range of objectives.

What’s in it for you?
In return, we can offer you a relaxed working environment, a great team of colleagues, excellent benefits, including 10% weekly paid time off for personal wellbeing; 25 days annual leave plus paid leave when the office closes between Christmas and New Year, and a variety of activities and social events to promote health and wellbeing that enable our teams to enjoy a positive, cohesive work environment.

The Benefits

Peace Direct works hard to ensure its staff have a good work-life balance and feel valued. In addition to the advertised salary, some of the benefits we offer include:

25 days annual leave not including the office closing between Christmas and New Year, which count as additional paid leave.
Stakeholder Pension, with Peace Direct contributing 6%
Flexible working hours – applications can be made on immediate start in role
Friday afternoons off to support staff wellbeing
Enhanced maternity and adoption leave pay (12 weeks full pay, 12 weeks half pay)
Training budget available for all staff (we have secured ‘Investors in People’ accreditation and are committed to the development and support of all staff).
A warm and friendly work environment!

For more details, please read the job description and person specification. We require a CV and cover letter only at this stage. However please note, shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete an application form.

The closing deadline for applications is Tuesday 12th July 2022.
