Prospectus is pleased to be partnering with Paul Hamlyn Foundation as they seek to recruit their newest Grants Manager. This role will work closely with a portfolio of organisations that Paul Hamlyn Foundation funds through the Arts Access and Participation theme, primarily the Arts Access and Participation Fund.
Paul Hamlyn Foundation (PHF) is one of the largest independent grant-making organisations in the UK. PHF use their resources to support social change, working towards a just and equitable society in which everyone, especially young people, can realise their full potential and enjoy fulfilling and creative lives.
As Grants Manager you will be the main point of contact between funded organisations and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. This role will assess applications for funding, write cases for support for the decision-making panels and will play a key role in recommending what funding and support PHF should commit to organisations. The post holder will also be responsible for developing relationships with new potential grantees and for keeping abreast of developments in your area of specialism to inform the Foundation's future thinking.
To be considered for this role, you will have demonstrable experience of work that is focusing on widening who is accessing and participating in the arts, as well as in-depth knowledge of policy and/or best practice of arts access and participation. It is expected you will have a good understanding of organisational dynamics and how they apply to developing business models, capacity and long-term sustainability. You will have experience of the grant-making process or experience of working within the arts to promoting better access and participation, as well as the ability to analyse complex information quickly and effectively.
