Zakat Expert

Are you passionate about creating a thriving Muslim community in the UK? Do you love to make sure organisations are well-run and efficient?

National Zakat Foundation (NZF) is looking for a Head of Operations to join our growing, dynamic team. This is an exciting new role which will support the organisation to scale up in a sustainable way.

About NZF

At NZF, we believe Zakat given where we live has the potential to change the lives of Muslims in need and help those in the community being held back by their finances. We provide the only national ecosystem that lets people get their Zakat to those who should be receiving it in the UK. Since our launch in 2011 we’ve enabled tens of thousands of Muslims to get their Zakat to those who need it up and down the country.

As Head of Operations, you’ll be responsible for developing and maintaining governance procedures throughout the organisation which comply with the highest standards and fulfil charity and statutory requirements. You’ll also develop and implement the risk management and project management functions; work with and support the Finance and People functions; and deputise for the Director of Operations as needed.

About you

You’ll be highly organised and diligent, showing great attention to detail. You’ll be proactive and possess excellent oral and written communication skills. You’ll have a financial qualification. You’ll be comfortable liaising closely with Directors and others throughout the organisation to ensure policies and processes are appropriate and being implemented effectively. While you may not have worked in the charity sector before, you’ll be able to show a clear motivation for wanting to work within the sector.
