As the Charity’s part time Funding Officer, you will be responsible for our grant-making activity in a geographical area. This will include advice, assessment, grant management and learning. You will ensure that our funding responds to the local context, our commitment to equality and inclusion and challenge yourself and colleagues to continually improve the way we work.

You will build good working relationships with people and organisations in the local area. This will include reaching out to new and different groups, supporting people who are applying for grants to support leisure activities and continuing to work with them after a grant has been awarded. You will be rewarded by seeing groups thrive with your support.

You will be responsible for understanding how other organisation’s ideas align with our funding priorities and making good judgements about when to take an application further or when to signpost to alternative opportunities. You will be able to communicate clearly and concisely your recommendations about who and what we fund. Your natural curiosity combined with a genuine interest in people and projects in our area will enable you to try new approaches and develop your understanding of what works.

You will represent the Charity within our local area and create opportunities for people to come together. You will share learning with other colleagues within the centre so that we can make the greatest difference.
