Job Description

Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales is searching for a passionate, dynamic and experienced small charity leader to help transform and strengthen small charities and the future of the sector through a 12-month secondment role.

After a transformative period of growth, the newly established development Directorate is excited to take its work to the next level, drawing on the experience, knowledge and skills of someone with recent experience leading a small charity supporting people who face complex social issues.

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious individual with experience leading a charity with an income under £1million to join a dynamic team committed to driving change and significantly impact the landscape in which small charities operate.

The ideal candidate will have the skills to:

  • Support the sector to thrive through opening up ideas, opportunities and exploring options for collaboration and sustainability
  • Seek out successful sector activity and collaboration opportunities to promote sustainability, generate new ideas and restore ambition in the sector
  • Identify alternative pathways that promote growth through mixed funding streams, robust financial planning and long-term strategies for sustainability

This role offers a number of benefits to the successful candidate and their organisation including: 

  • The ability to invest in a senior manager’s development
  • The opportunity to broaden sector understanding by viewing it through a different lens
  • Increased understanding of funder challenges and the key to sustainability
  • The ability to step away from daily pressures to reflect on the current climate, generate new ideas and support an optimistic future  

The Foundation will provide relevant backfill costs to the organisation to cover the candidate’s salary, on costs and recruitment/induction fees for their replacement (amount to be agreed). The Foundation will also reimburse travel and subsistence fees for the successful candidate. 

This role can be based anywhere across England and Wales aside from the candidate’s existing organisation, however, travel will be required to London on a regular basis.
