Richmond is the only Borough in London to be divided by the River Thames. That division also reflects the contrasts within the Borough. Hampton Fuel Allotment Charity and Richmond Parish Lands Charity are grant-making Trusts that support the needs of the poor and disadvantaged in their respective areas. Last year the Trusts co-funded independent research to review need across the Borough. The report On The Edge concluded that the perception of Richmond as a wealthy Borough masks high levels of poverty, poor health and low attainment.
The Trusts are implementing one of the key recommendations in the report: to establish a place-based giving scheme to generate significant additional resources, both in cash and in-kind, to support the work of our local charities and communities in addressing those needs.
We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic professional, with the leadership, marketing and fundraising skills, to develop, implement and lead this initiative.
To apply please email your CV and covering letter addressing the job description and person specification.Include details of two referees. Please also address the following question on a side of A4: what are the key issues you expect to encounter in the early stages of developing this initiative and briefly outline some of the potential solutions?
Closing date: Friday 16 February.
Due to limited resources, we regret that only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
