The post holder will be tasked with managing a portfolio of 20 to 30 trusts and foundations, develop new relationships and report back on active grants. The post holder will lead on the writing of five and six figure bids to a range of trusts and foundations with a view to creating a long term, multi-year pipeline. At the moment there is not an Officer in post so you will be support by the Head of Philanthropy and in the future there could be an option to bring in an officer, and beyond that in time grow a team.

They are looking for a confident bid writer who has led on successful six figure applications and is keen to engage with a range of contacts in trusts and foundations. They are keen to hire someone who can make sure deadlines are clear and is a good project planner to ensure the overall portfolio is well managed.
