About us

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based educational charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We want more people to be able to harness digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

Established in 2008 and first known for our product — the wildly successful Raspberry Pi computer — the Foundation has developed educational content and programmes that are helping millions of people learn new skills.

In October 2015 we merged with Code Club, followed in May 2017 by a second merger with the CoderDojo Foundation. Together we now represent one of the largest sustained global efforts to help young people learn about computing and digital making.

The role

The Foundation is a fast-growing organisation with big ambitions. We are about to expand beyond 100 employees and move into our new headquarters building in the centre of Cambridge.

We are looking for an experienced Operations Manager to lead a small team focused on the smooth running of the HQ building and the wider business processes and administrative support that helps us work efficiently and effectively. This is a hugely varied role, with the opportunity to work across the Foundation to help us achieve our goals.

You will be responsible for managing all aspects of the HQ, including liaising with suppliers, providing great customer service to colleagues and visitors, supporting a vibrant programme of educational events in our 100-people capacity classroom, and developing and implementing effective business and administrative processes.

The ideal candidate will have solid operational experience, including the management of a busy office environment. You will need to be adaptable and creative, with a proactive approach to solving problems.

We pride ourselves on being a brilliant place to work, with a diverse team, a positive work culture, and a lot of flexibility for working arrangements.
