Through its professional staff and network of volunteer support groups, Diabetes Ireland provides a wide array of services which covers all aspects of the condition under the key organisation pillars of Education, Support/Care, Awareness and Research.

They are now seeking an experienced Operations Coordinator to join their committed team.


Reporting to the CEO, the Operations Coordinator will be responsible for managing the administrative workload of Head Office, developing and implementing initiatives to improve office efficiency, supporting Senior Management, and acting as committee secretary to the Board of Directors.

This is a varied role which requires a dynamic professional who can show ability in a range of areas including:

  • 3 – 5 years’ previous experience in a similar role preferably within the not-for-profit sector

This post offers extensive scope for the right candidate to develop their skills and talents and work closely with the CEO, Board, and Senior Management in developing operational strategy and delivering a wide range of projects and outcomes for staff and service users.

This is a great opportunity to contribute to the success and development of a motivated workforce and the day-to-day running of a busy charity. If you have the ability to work independently and proactively, manage your own workload, and respond flexibly to the needs of the team and wider organisation, this could be the role for you!
