Well Grounded is London’s first specialty coffee training academy, which connects people looking for work with sustainable careers in the coffee industry, regardless of their background. As an Award winning social enterprise we are changing lives through coffee.

This is a really rare opportunity to join our growing, dynamic and motivated Social Enterprise at a senior level. We are looking for a Managing Director, to work alongside the CEO, to deliver the organisation into our new strategy at an exciting period of substantial growth.  Most importantly to us, is a passion and ambition for social impact, so we’ve kept the requirements relatively top-line as we want to hear from all candidates who aspire to our mission of a society where people are thriving socially and economically, in a diverse, dynamic and nurturing coffee community.

We are looking for someone who excels in a small business, is able to juggle multiple tasks and deadlines, can self-prioritise and thrives on getting things done.

About us
Over the last 18 months, we have supported 84 people into work from our Academy in Tower Hamlets.  We do this through specialty coffee training, an employment and work readiness programme and a recruitment service, connecting to our industry employers. Over the next 18 months, we are opening a second Academy, launching a coffee product and building our presence in the coffee industry. We are on the search for someone to drive these plans alongside our CEO, a committed board and a small but perfectly formed team.

About the role
The Managing Director will ensure the effective delivery of services to our trainees and oversee the running of the organisation. The MD will report into the CEO, working closely to lead the organisation into its new plans for growth. The CEO will be on maternity leave for a period of 2019, during which time the MD will take responsibility for the day to day running of the organisation with the support of the Chair. The CEO and MD will work collaboratively reflecting the key values of the organisation on an ongoing basis.
