Dementia Hawkes Bay Charitable Trust (DHBCT) has an exciting opportunity for a passionate and energetic Operations Manager to join the organisation on a full time basis.  The role requires day-to-day leadership and management of employees and volunteers, managing the financial aspects of the Trust, and working with the Board to strengthen and maintain a positive workplace culture that mirrors the mission, vision and values.
