About Us

The National Lottery Community Fund is the largest funder of community activity in the UK – we support people and communities to prosper and thrive.

National Lottery players raise an incredible £30 million a week for good causes. This money funds projects and activities that transform communities, protect our heritage and enrich lives through arts, sports and culture. We are proud to be one of 12 distributors responsible for awarding this funding across the UK.

Thanks to National Lottery players, last year we were able to award over half a billion pounds of life-changing funding to UK communities, supporting thousands of projects making a real difference to people’s lives.

Over eight in ten of our grants were for under £10,000 going to grassroots groups and charities across the UK doing great things to support their communities, during a particularly tough time.

We also distribute non-National Lottery funds, working closely with Government on funding for important issues, such as tackling loneliness, multiple and complex needs, mental health and distributing Dormant Accounts money.

Over the last five years we’ve awarded a total of £3.4 billion, of which £2.7 billion is National Lottery money.

We fund things that matter – whether helping communities respond positively to national, regional or local priorities, or helping the UK achieve its big social ambitions. Our grants range from £500 up to multi-million-pound programmes – supporting people and projects to do extraordinary things and bring great ideas for their community to life.

About the role

We have an opening within our Midlands Team for an individual who is passionate about their community and the voluntary and community sector to join us as a Funding Manager.  Based in the Coventry, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire area, you will be working within a group of managers, leading a team of remotely based Funding Officers and reporting into the Senior Grant Making Manager. 

In this role you will be expected to provide direction, support and guidance within the team, be accountable for an annual grant budget, and contribute towards making decisions on how to invest Lottery funding into local groups working within the voluntary and community sector.  What’s exciting about this role is that you will be working across the area, creating and developing relationships whilst seeking out opportunities to maximise our grant funding investment.

Our Midlands region spans rich and diverse communities, both rural and urban.  With a population of over 11 million it includes the second largest city and conurbation in the UK, along with about half of England’s mid-sized cities and a long list of counties with a complexity of deprivation.  The Midlands awards approximately £50m per annum within the region.  You will be working within a team that manages and supports a compliment of 32 remotely-based mobile Fund Officers.

This role will suit anyone who wants to contribute towards the communities and the sector in which they live.  You will need to have strong management and leadership skills to support your own team of Funding Officers and work within a wider management team.  Relationship management is key, you must be a confident communicator as we work with many different customers and stakeholders, from small groups to large national organisations and government bodies.

Mobile working is central to this role as you will quite often be based out in the community, meeting groups, applicants and stakeholders with an element of working from home.  As Funding Manager, you will enjoy working flexibly, managing your own time and workload.  Access to a car is recommended.

Contract Type: Permanent

Hours: 37 Hours per week, part-time hours and flexible working can be considered

Interview Date: week commencing 19th September.  Interviews will be held in person.

Essential criteria

For this role, you may or may not come from a funding background, but you should have personal or professional experience and understanding of the voluntary and community sector.  You will be responsible for overseeing the delivery of the Reaching Communities programme in your area.  This requires strong people management skills, excellent written and verbal communication skills, and an ability to create and develop relationships.

A full, clean drivers license and access to a car is recommended for working in this area for times when public transport is not adequate.

Specifically, you will need to demonstrate your experience in these areas:

  • Ability to be flexible and resilient, with strong prioritisation skills to enable you to work in a changing external and internal landscape.
  • Experience of leadership and driving a high-performance culture through your ability to coach, involve, empower and manage people and teams.
  • Proven ability to build and maintain excellent relationships with a range of senior level internal and external stakeholders.

Lived experience or working knowledge of some or all of the geographic areas the role will cover, and voluntary and community sector.

Desirable criteria

  • Strong attention to detail and sound analytical skills and judgement.
  • Experience in managing complex budgets and processes
  • A deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for the VCSE sector including a commitment to equitable grant making.

For You

We seek to develop our staff and offer a wide range of personal development opportunities.

We offer a wide range of generous benefits including:

  • Generous annual leave and company pension scheme
  • Flexible working to support staff with their work/life balance, taking into account things such as caring responsibilities, worship and attendance at religious festivals
  • Enhanced paid maternity, paternity and adoption leave
  • Season ticket and cycle to work loans
  • Paid volunteering leave

Equal Opportunities

Communities in the UK come in all shapes and sizes. National Lottery funding is for everyone – we are committed to equity, diversity and inclusion and work hard to ensure our funding reaches where it is needed.

We also believe our people should represent the communities, organisations and individuals we work with. We are committed to being an inclusive and great place to work, and recognise our people come from diverse backgrounds.  As such we particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities, Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (B.A.M.E) backgrounds, LGBTQ+ and from different socio-economic and educational backgrounds.

We are proud to be a Disability Confident Employer. We welcome applications from disabled people and will proactively make reasonable adjustments if needed through the recruitment process and during employment. This can be related to a physical and mental health conditions.
