Job Title: Funder and Charity Engagement Officer
Location: Home Based with some London travel
Salary: £25,000 per annum (pro rata)
Weekly Hours: 18 - Approximately 3 days a week, in agreement with Board of trustees
A new and exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced individual with passion for working with Communities Experiencing Racial Inequalities (CERI) focusing on the Muslim communities living across the UK.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join All Ways Network (AWN) as our plans to grow and empower the needs of the organisations we support. We are committed to listening and developing their organisational structure to work towards securing funding from Grantmakers and donors alike. We accept there are challenges within the diverse Muslim communities and within Grant-making when supporting small CERI not for profits, therefore our position is vital to provide a platform to share, engage and reflect.
As the first paid member of staff, you will connect and support not-for-profit organisations and UK Grantmakers to develop and build a trusting relationship; to implement and contribute to our strategy; and use your own initiative to proactively take All Ways Network (AWN) forward. Your role will engage and collaborate with NFPs and Grant-makers through one to one, group meetings and presentations. This new role will require the person to take lead for their own work, know the charity sector and Muslim communities very well. As a small organisation with a big impact, you will be working closely with the Board and volunteers.
Holidays: 22 + Bank holidays (pro rata)
Contract length: Until August 2024, with potential to extend
Reports to: Chair of Board of Trustees
