Job description


The Helen Bamber Foundation (HBF) is a pioneering Human Rights charity supporting refugees and asylum seekers who are the survivors of extreme human cruelty. The people we work with have been subjected to atrocities including state-sponsored torture, human trafficking, religious and political persecution, forced labour, sexual exploitation, and gender-based and ‘honour-based’ violence. Recognising the complexity of each client’s suffering and needs, HBF offers specialist services within a Model of Integrated Care encompassing: therapy; medical advice; legal protection; counter-trafficking support; housing and welfare advice; and community and integration.

HBF exists to ensure that all survivors of trafficking and torture are free and healthy (both physically and mentally), are safe, are protected from re-victimisation, detention and poverty, and have the ability and agency to integrate in and contribute to the communities around them. HBF also uses its unique expertise to drive change and improve practice and policy for all survivors.

We are innovative, ambitious and compassionate. The bravery and resilience of our clients is an inspiration to all the team at HBF.


This exciting role is responsible for raising funds from charitable trusts and foundations, which accounts for approximately 50% of HBF’s total annual income. We are looking for an ambitious trust and foundations fundraiser with a proven track record of raising significant funds from charitable foundations who, alongside our existing team, will help to grow and develop this area of fundraising.

As a Grants Manager, you will be responsible for supporting the Head of Fundraising & Marketing to achieve ambitious but achievable income targets. The post holder will be responsible for the overall management and growth of a successful grants programme including: prospect research, developing bespoke proposals (including complex budgets) and leveraging existing relationships. You will also be responsible for reporting on all grants, including the management of data required for measurement and evaluation.  

We’re looking for someone who is committed to helping achieve the income requirements for HBF and who is able to react and respond creatively to the operational and financial needs of the charity. The post holder will have a proven eye for detail, an analytical nature and a flair for writing successful applications.

HBF is an equal opportunities and Living Wage employer. We are committed to attracting and recruiting diverse candidates as we are keen to make sure that our staff, trustees, volunteers and ambassadors reflect the communities we serve and the wider community we work in at every level within the organisation.   

Please note that the successful candidate will be offered the job subject to suitable references and a DBS (CRB) check.

Please submit an up to date C.V. and a short covering letter outlining how your skills and experience match the listed duties, responsibilities, and person specification to Gareth Holmes, Head of Fundraising and Marketing by 5 pm on the 4th of February.

We regret that we can only respond to applicants who make it to the interview stage. No agencies please.
