Job Description

This is an exciting time to join a Foundation that is delivering new grant rounds, exploring approaches to community engagement and participatory grant making, planning ahead for significant growth and shaping a vision and strategy for the next 10 years.

The Grants and Programmes Manager will be our second member of staff. They will coordinate the breadth of the grant making cycle and be a monitoring, data and impact champion, ensuring that we collect and use the right information to inform the future work of the organisation. The post holder will develop our grant making policies, processes and systems and contribute to our forward strategic planning. The successful candidate will have experience in grant or programme management, developing and implementing monitoring and evaluation processes and managing performance on a project and programme wide level. They will also have excellent attention to detail, good numeracy skills, and the ability to interpret complex data to evidence recommendations for next steps. The role holder will be self-sufficient with minimal administrative support as the team is very small.

We are looking for a team player who can champion communities across our area of benefit, work in genuine partnership with our grant recipients and other stakeholders, and think creatively about how we identify local issues and fund solutions. You will be a curious, collaborative and kind individual who knows how to listen and works hard to enable the widest possible range of groups to access our funding.

This is a great opportunity for someone interested in joining a vibrant organisation and who is as excited as we are about making positive, generational change across our area of benefit.
