Salary: £39,735 - £43,918 per annum + generous benefits

Contract: Permanent

Closing date: 24 March

Interview date: 2 April (Birmingham)

Do you have experience of supporting a wide range of land or building projects in the charity sector as well as strong people management skills and the ability to nurture, coach and empower people?

Are you passionate about using your knowledge of construction to support communities to build on their strengths and deliver projects? So are we.

Our funding of capital, by which we mean land, buildings and refurbishment, has changed to reflect the needs of local communities. This means that we mostly fund a wide range of smaller scale capital projects, rather than large scale builds.

About us

The National Lottery Community Fund is the largest community funder in the UK - we’re proud to award money raised by players of The National Lottery to communities across the UK. Last year alone we gave out over half a billion pounds (£508.5 million) of National Lottery funding to over 11,000 community projects across the UK, enabling even more people and communities to bring their ideas and ambitions to life. We support a wide range of health, educational, environmental, and charitable projects with grants ranging from as little as £500 to multi-million-pound programmes. 86% of our new grants were for less than £10k.

At the heart of everything we do is the belief that when people are in the lead, communities thrive. National Lottery funding is open to everyone and we’re privileged to be able to work with the smallest of grassroots groups right up to large UK-wide charities. We have changed how we work across the Fund to help us serve people and communities more effectively, working flexibly and on their terms; working closer to communities.

About the role

We are recruiting a Capital Projects Manager to join our capital projects team, who are responsible for facilitating the development of knowledge about land, buildings and refurbishment and supporting the delivery of live projects working with Funding Officers across our England regional teams.

  • You will be a key part of a small team providing grant making support to ensure that support is given where it matters most across our regional teams.
  • You will provide in-depth advice on land and building projects throughout the whole lifecycle of our grant making (pre-application, assessment, decision making, grant management and build, and learning).
  • You will strive for continuous improvement, developing and facilitating an ongoing community of practice for colleagues working with capital projects.
  • You will have strong attention to detail as you will be responsible for risk management, budget, decision-making and quality assurance activities associated with supporting the delivery of capital funding.
  • Your excellent people management skills will be important as you work with funding officers in England to nurture, inspire and empower them, demonstrating a positive working ethos.
  • Your project management skills will be equally solid, with an ability to delegate when necessary, and your decision-making will be informed by robust analysis and critical assessment. You will have a commitment to delivering excellent customer service and use feedback to improve what we do whilst also drawing on your own learning and experience.

About you

We are looking for someone who is passionate about making a difference, who really understand how impactful even the smallest amount of capital funding can be within the communities we fund. You will need to demonstrate the following:

  • A BSc / BA qualification (or equivalent experience) in a construction, property management or a regeneration related discipline.
  • Experience of working in an advisory capacity within the field of construction or community projects.
  • Experience of building capability and expertise in others and providing ongoing support, identifying strengths, potential, skills gaps and communicating technical issues in an accessible way.
  • Experience of the full lifecycle of capital projects including planning, design, cost estimates, procurement, project and contract management, risk controls and relevant statutory legislation.
  • Excellent communication skills and confidence to operate in all environments.
  • Experience in managing budgets and processes.
  • In addition, experience or knowledge of the following would be useful: providing technical aid to community groups, accessible environments and energy conservation in buildings.
  • Travel across England is part of the role.
