What you'll be doing
We're looking for an experienced Trusts & Foundations Manager to join the friendly External Affairs team and help fund the vital work they do changing people's lives.
You'll be managing the relationships, applications and income from a range of organisations including Trusts, Foundations, Statutory funders and the National Lottery Community Fund (The Big Lottery).
As well as developing high quality, well-written funding applications and bids on time and within budget, you'll be working on the end to end funding process - from researching and identifying grant makers that can be matched to emerging local or national funding priorities, right the way through to ensuring projects are successfully handed over to the operations teams and delivered in accordance with funder requirements.
Crucially, you'll do more than source funding opportunities for the existing projects but will enjoy using your creativity to work directly with the operations teams and service users to turn initial concepts into new and innovative service models that will support the end beneficiaries.
As a result, you'll add real value through fresh thinking and will keep abreast of local and national policy and practice developments as well as funding trends in the sector to create exciting propositions for prospective funders.
You'll join the organisation at a busy and exciting time, with the opportunity to be involved in a broad range of projects.
If you have a genuine desire to make a positive difference to the lives of those affected by drug or alcohol misuse and mental health - then it would be wonderful to hear from you.
