About UK Community Foundations 

UK Community Foundations (UKCF) is the membership body for 47 accredited community foundations which cover every postcode of the UK, and three international members in Ireland, Jersey and Bermuda.

Community foundations are local champions, bringing local bodies together to understand inequalities and find solutions. They use these local insights to inspire place-based philanthropy, transforming private wealth into community resources for both now and the long term.

Last year, the UKCF network collectively invested over £170 million into local groups and organisations that are tackling the biggest issues facing communities.

What we provide 

At UKCF, we put inclusion at the forefront of our work and believe in equal opportunities for all. That is why our recruitment process is anonymous and our salaries are transparent.

It is important that our people reflect and represent the diversity of the communities and audiences we serve, and we want everyone in our team to feel they belong. We ensure staff familiarise themselves with our company policies and procedures, uphold the Equal Opportunities and Anti-Harassment and Bullying policies, act at all times within the company rules and procedures and observe health and safety procedures to ensure personal safety when working remotely. We also have mental health first-aiders in place and a fantastic wellbeing service that provides bespoke support to all employees.

Each member can be fully home based, work from the office of their nearest community foundation or combine the two approaches according to their situation and preference. 

UKCF is made of a small, friendly and supportive team. We make time to catch up socially as well as to work. We meet in person three times a year over a few days, visiting a different community foundation and region each time. This helps us to build on our strategy and working relationships, and to learn more about the vital projects and programmes our network supports. 

Holidays and benefits 

  • 30 days holiday each year plus 8 bank holidays (pro-rata) 

  • Up to two days paid leave for volunteer days
