The Trustees of the Campden Charities are seeking to appoint two full time Grants Managers to join the Charities’ small grants team as a result of increasing workloads and staff restructuring. The two new posts will be expected to take a lead in developing further outreach and publicity with a view to creating community hubs in the future, in addition to taking a lead in development of grant programmes. The Charities is at a pivotal stage of our work as we drive to continue to support our services and grant making ensuring that everyone who is eligible has access to our support embedding our work within the local community.
The Campden Charities is a local, permanently endowed trust assisting individuals on the lowest incomes in the old parish of Kensington. The area is one of extreme contrasts and includes some neighbourhoods with significant levels of deprivation and need. The Charities awards grants totalling more than £2 million each year. The grant-giving programmes are focused on helping individuals on very low incomes to move on in their lives.
The people we are looking for will have experience of managing and developing staff, understanding of, and empathy towards, supporting unemployed or low income individuals and families to improve their financial circumstances and experience or willingness to engage in outreach to promote the Charities’ work. They will be self-motivated, highly organised with excellent attention to detail, an independent thinker yet a team player and computer literate. Candidates must be able to make clear and objective recommendations, both written and verbal, to Trustees.
We are currently home based and working remotely due to COVID-19. However, in the future the role will be based at our offices near Notting Hill or in local community organisations. The role is not suitable for permanent full-time remote working.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
