Job description

The Henry Smith Charity is one of the largest grant making foundations in the UK, distributing close to £40m of grants in 2020. We aim to bring about lasting change to people's lives, helping them to benefit from and contribute to society. We achieve this by funding organisations that work with people to reduce social and economic disadvantage.  
  
We are delighted to be recruiting up to three Grants Managers to join our current team. Grants Managers are a key role within the organisation, delivering the grants assessment process and managing a portfolio of grants. The Henry Smith Charity are looking for talented people from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures and experiences who share our values and are passionate about making a difference through grant making.   
  
The successful candidates will have a proven track record of either delivering and managing projects within the not-for-profit sector or managing a portfolio of grants/contracts/service level agreements, and should have considerable administration and database experience. They will be highly organised, show excellent attention to detail, have strong analytical skills (both quantitative and qualitative) and have outstanding written and verbal communication skills.  
  
At The Henry Smith Charity we highly value the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion and view them as central to our successes in grant making, helping individuals and communities to thrive. We welcome applications from people with a wide range of backgrounds and experience including people with disabilities, Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic backgrounds, people who identify as LGBTQI+ and individuals from different socio-economic and educational backgrounds.  
  
The Henry Smith Charity offers a range of generous benefits including 24 days (rising to 26 days after two years completed) annual leave, company pension scheme, health insurance, paid volunteering days, access to a free Empathy helpline, travel ticket loan and cycle to work scheme. We are currently trialling a new approach to flexible working, however regular attendance at our central London office will still be required.  
  
Please let us know if you need any additional support to take part in the selection process. If your application is successful, the organisation will make reasonable adjustments to the working environment to enable you to fulfil the role.  
  
To find out more about this role, please apply with a Word format version of your CV; cover letters are not required at this stage.   
  
Interviews will be held on the 15th and 16th November, in person, at the Prospectus offices in Holborn.
