Do you want an opportunity to work for a successful and dynamic organisation that:

  • Champions the work and changing needs of our voluntary sector
  • Provides long term support through our grant-making and property portfolio

The MK Community Foundation is an independent charity working for and at the heart of Milton Keynes. We connect people and resources to projects and ideas to create positive change and long term solutions for our communities.

We provide vital support to a diverse range of local charities and community groups through our work.

We’ve just had our most successful year ever, putting more than £1.6M into supporting local charities. To take our business forward and achieve our ambitions for 2015 and beyond, we are seeking an exceptional person to join our very busy team and make a significant impact on the growing community of Milton Keynes.

You will work as part of the Programmes team to manage several projects, including the annual Community Car Raffle, Bursary Programme, Voluntary Sector Reception, and Localgiving. You will engage in training sessions with voluntary sector groups and support groups to develop a strong online presence to maximise donations, and to make the most of fundraising opportunities.  You will work alongside the wider team to ensure all targets are met, and will keep records of communications with groups and their progress.

We are seeking a motivated and proactive individual who is passionate about our work and has exceptional communication, interpersonal, organisational and IT skills, as well as energy and empathy towards community needs. You will have excellent IT and written skills with the ability to manage databases, and marketing experience will be an advantage.
