About Positive Money

Positive Money is a leading international new economy think tank and campaigning organisation re-imagining our money, banking, and the economy for the wellbeing of people, communities and the planet. We are part of a growing and collective force for economic systems change. Our mission is to reform money and banking to build a fair, democratic and sustainable economy.

We produce ground-breaking research and policy proposals, inform the public and politicians, regularly appear in the media, and mobilise the public behind people-powered campaigns. We believe in radical systems change and work to achieve lasting change on several fronts simultaneously: change in public understanding, the public and media debate, and at the policy and academic level. We work across three key areas: democratising money and banking, a green and fair European Central Bank, and financing the just transition of homes across Europe.

We are committed to cultivating a culture of support, respect, open communication, and collaboration that encourages creativity and innovation. We foster an environment where diverse perspectives are valued and where work arrangements are tailored to accommodate individual needs, ensuring every team member can contribute their best work.

About The Role

Positive Money has developed into an international organisation, having begun in the UK in 2010, before setting up offices in the EU in 2018, and the US in 2021. We see this role as pivotal to the growth of Positive Money Europe and as an exciting opportunity to oversee and optimise the organisation’s finances and operations, and develop systems to support its continued expansion. You will lead the smooth, efficient and effective running of the day-to-day operations (finance, HR, IT and governance) of our organisation and will report directly to our Executive Director and collaborate closely with our International Director of HR & Operations. This position offers the potential for the right candidate to evolve and grow within the organisation, gradually taking on broader responsibilities and contributing to strategic decision-making.

About You

This is an opportunity for a highly-organised and detail-oriented operations generalist, able to oversee and deliver on multiple projects simultaneously. We are seeking a dynamic problem solver for this role who is not only proficient in overseeing finances and operations but also eager to step up, embrace additional responsibilities, and contribute proactively across various functions as needed, fostering the growth and success of Positive Money Europe. You’ll be excited about our mission, vision and values, and committed to dismantling oppression in all areas of our work. You could come from any background or walk of life, and share our commitment to an inclusive and diverse team, and our culture of being open-minded, ambitious, respectful and self-aware.
