Operations Manager, Compliance

Based in the heart of Edinburgh and noted as one of the most exciting startups in Scotland, Appointedd is an innovative tech business with big plans for future growth. This is your opportunity to join us on an exciting journey and have a direct influence on our future success, playing a vital role in our team. We’re a passionate and innovative team with an industry-leading product, currently onboarding household names and breaking into a global marketplace.

Sounds like the kind of place you want to work?

We’re looking for an Operations Manager focusing on legal and compliance who will jump in with both feet and be able to push forward multiple projects as well as manage their day to day. This role will be varied and always busy, it would suit someone who can not only multitask but also with keen attention to detail.   We are a growing and changing company, and we know this role will grow and change too.  You may not be an expert in all the areas below, but if you are willing to learn and have a solid operational foundation we are keen to talk to you.  


Certification compliance

We are ISO 27001 certified and a member of the Cyber Essentials Plus scheme.  Our Operations Manager will spearhead all compliance related tasks and processes, and be integral in administering both schemes and looking for ongoing improvements in our Information Security Management System.

As we extend our ever growing customer base we’re looking for our Operations Manager to oversee the pre-sales process which often includes cyber due diligence requests and any contracting discussions.

Working with our external support (which includes an accountant and a senior financial advisor) and our internal team (who are responsible for day to day finance tasks) ensure we have the documents and processes that allow us to make robust financially based decisions.
