Chief Operating Officer

Remote / London / Oxford

Our client's mission is to support research that will improve the cooperative intelligence of advanced AI for the benefit of all humanity.

The Chief Operating Officer (COO) will report only to the Executive Director (ED), working closely with them to scale and shape the foundation's structure and processes during its first years of operation, and managing both these processes and all other staff. As such, the role will be central to the organisation's operations, and provides an exciting opportunity to proactively shape and manage the foundation in order to maximise its impact. More concretely, the responsibilities of the COO would include:

Designing and implementing the internal processes required for the organisation to run smoothly and efficiently,
Shaping the structure and culture of the foundation, including building and managing the rest of the team,
Overseeing and helping to evaluate the progress of the organisation's activities, with respect to its mission.
In the initial stages of the organisation's growth, the COO may also take on other responsibilities, including organising important events such as workshops, or creating and managing key programs such as those for PhD scholarships. With that said, they will also encourage and expect the COO to hire further staff to assist with operations as necessary.

The ideal candidate would possess:‍

‍Excellent organisational and project management skills
Ambition, motivation, and excitement with respect to the organisation's mission
A strong ability to manage people, with good interpersonal and communication skills
Excellent day-to-day judgement in running an organisation
The ability to coordinate with a wide range of stakeholders, especially academia
