Diversity and inclusion:

Diversity and inclusion are important principles at OG. We believe that diversity and inclusion

practices, and we are striving to ensure that a variety of voices and experiences are included
in our organisation. Our commitment to diversity and our parental leave policy are available to
view on our website, here.

We will consider all applicants who meet most or all of the essential competencies regardless
of their identity or background. That said, we know that diverse candidates may be reluctant to
apply for jobs where they don’t meet 100% of the criteria outlined in the job description. We
encourage anyone to apply who can demonstrate the variety of skills and experiences relevant to
meeting the requirements of this role.

We recognise that many diverse experiences and perspectives are not represented in our current
workforce, and are seriously underrepresented across the non-profit sector in general, and as
such, we particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities, people of colour,
people from marginalised backgrounds, and members of the LGBTQIA+ communities. We will use
positive action under the Equality Act 2010 to appoint from these groups if two candidates are
equally qualified. We also value flexible working and are open to those who would want to work
part-time in this role.

as to showcase your full potential, please find our Application Guide

What we offer

The successful candidate will be offered an annual salary of £40,000 plus 10%
employer-contributed pension. Please note that OG has fixed salary scales, with the possibility
of step increases with strong performance. When hiring we always hire at the bottom of a band
and do not enter negotiations with new employees as negotiations have been historically shown
to disadvantage women and minorities.

We take our team’s wellbeing and professional development seriously. In addition to a
competitive salary, we offer:

  • A commitment to work/life balance, with a 4-day work week at 28 hours
  • A generous holiday entitlement of 20 days holidays per year, plus bank holidays and office
    closure between Christmas and New Year’s that does not count towards your holiday entitlement
    (and expectation that you fully disconnect when taking time off)
  • A market-leading pension of 10%
  • A progressive parental leave policy, including 26 weeks paid leave for both parents
  • Flexible working with plenty of opportunities to come together as a team.
  • Support for your professional development as part of Opportunity Green, with a budget to
    support your learning & development plus opportunities to lead projects, publish content,
    learn from experts, work directly with policymakers and stakeholders, and take part in
    conferences and events.

However, it is important to note that while this role is permanent, employment is always
reliant on Opportunity Green continuing to receive philanthropic support from our funders,
which we expect every member of the team to play their part in working towards.
