An immediate opening for an Operations Manager is available with the Unitarian Universalist Veatch Program at Shelter Rock, a unique organization within the philanthropic sector. While Veatch is a program of a Unitarian Universalist congregation located on Long Island, its philanthropic giving is nationwide and broad in scope. The Veatch Program provides long term, core support for community organizing and civic engagement non-profits throughout the United States.

This is a rare operations opening within social justice grantmaking. The Operations Manager is responsible for the smooth management and supervision of day-to-day operations for a $12.5 million/200 grantees, national grant making program with 8 staff. The Operations Manager oversees administrative functions and staff, human resource management and process design, internal efficiency, budget and financial administration, grant administration and data system integration. In addition, the Operations Manager is charged with improving and overseeing the tools, systems and policies to support optimal operations and grantmaking of the Veatch program.

The ideal candidate has at least 8-10 years of progressive experience in operations and administration as outlined, including integration of operations with program development and organizational policies and practices, as well as a bachelor’s degree. Prior experience working within a philanthropy, philanthropy serving organization (PSO), or nonprofit grant making organization is strongly preferred.

The Operations Manager is a full-time position and reports directly to the Executive Director of the Veatch Program. This position has two direct reports. Experience managing distributed/remote teams is strongly preferred.

This position can be based remotely, in a home office. Once travel restrictions are lifted, periodic travel to New York will be expected.
