Using its great industrial heritage, dramatic landscapes and cultural diversity as inspiration and material, Super Slow Way is sparking a creative revolution on the banks of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal in Pennine Lancashire; one that inspires new types of productivity and offers opportunities to spend our time more imaginatively, supporting existing cultural activity and encouraging new forms.

We are looking for a well organised, self-motivated and experienced Finance and Operations Manager to work with the Director and team to sustain and build on the success ofSuper Slow Way to date.

Contributing to the development of this bold and ambitious programme, the Finance and Operations Manager will be responsible for the delivery and direction of the Operations, Finance and Business Development elements of the programme; keeping the programme on track, providing regular monitoring and reporting to funders and partners and creating a positive and viable operational environment which will enable the programme to flourish.
