We are working in partnership with Greenham Trust, who’s aim is to support the charitable and voluntary sector in West Berkshire and north Hampshire. The Trust has generated over £64 million in charitable giving since 1997, improving the lives of local people and has benefitted over 5,000 local good causes to date with grants from £1,000 to over £1.5m.
The charity is now seeking to appoint a Head of Grants and Administration to support the Chief Executive and Board of trustees as part of the Senior Management Team to deliver the grant funding portfolios and associated programme of work of Greenham Trust. The Head of Grant-making operations is responsible for overseeing the effective distribution of some £3 million annually including the management of the Peter Baker grant fund, managing a team covering grant-making, events, administration and relationship management.
