POMOC Operations Manager

POMOC is seeking a passionate, creative and experienced Operations Manager to join our growing team in the UK. As the full-time Operations Manager, you would work flexibly and remotely with a diverse and collaborative team of 20 contractors and staff, and support POMOC’s infrastructure – finance, human resources and administration – to advance the rights of migrants in the UK. 


POMOC is dedicated to the kind of diversity and inclusion that makes our organisation thrive. We highly encourage people to apply who identify as women, trans or nonbinary; LGBTQIA+; Black or BIPOC; migrants and refugees; neurodiverse and disabled.


About the organisation

POMOC is a grassroots political home for Eastern European migrants living in the UK to organise together towards dignity, power and justice. We build power among people with marginalised genders, including women, queer, trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people, and work in solidarity with other marginalised communities. In just four years, POMOC evolved from a small project to a national multi-staff organisation, reaching thousands across several regions of the UK.


Our directors, staff, leaders and volunteers have deep community roots and lived experience of issues we tackle. When we organise, we work in solidarity and seek to activate our communities to campaign around their needs – from fair housing and migrants’ rights to improving our democracy – while influencing local and national policies. We believe this is the recipe for transforming the UK’s balance of power towards greater equality and improving our communities’ material conditions. For example, we launched the WeVote campaign in 2021 to organise Eastern European communities to become a powerful force in UK elections.
