We offer an excellent working environment in a culture that is genuinely supportive, consultative and flexible. We believe in promoting talent from within the organisation and ensure every member of the team has access to training and development opportunities. We strongly believe that the key to our success and our ability to deliver the highest standards of grant-making and donor service is the team of people that we employ

The role:

The Community Foundation for Surrey provides financial support and help to charities and voluntary organisations across Surrey. We are fortunate to be supported by 180 volunteers, a resource we are eager to grow.  Under the name of Funder Plus the Foundation also provides experienced volunteers to support small charities and social enterprises with advice and guidance in a range of critical business areas such as finance and governance

The Funder Plus Manager is a newly created role to lead the development of this key project and support the use of volunteers across the Foundations functions. This role will play a key part in supporting the Community Foundation to successfully achieve its strategic ambitions to deliver grant-making differently by improving the accessibility of our programmes and funding in a way that supports the growth & development of the community and voluntary sector and learns from our relationship with the community.

  • Manage the Community Foundation for Surrey’s volunteer Ambassador programme.
  • Support the effective use of volunteers throughout the Foundation.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about making a difference by working in the voluntary sector. A pro-active, team player who can contribute to the effectiveness and efficiency of the organisation. You will have meticulous attention to detail and accuracy, and be highly organised and able to prioritise effectively, sometimes working to short deadlines.

What’s really important to us:

  • Fully computer literate and confident using IT.
  • Experience of volunteer coordination and support including growing volunteering programmes.
  • Excellent communication skills
  • To be able to work as part of a small team and to be able to make your own decisions
  • The ability to be self-motivated and highly organised
  • A beady eye when it comes to details
  • A positive, ‘can do’ attitude
  • A professional, friendly approach to all of our stakeholders
