This post is offered as a full-time permanent role paying £27,000 to £30,000 per annum to be home based until the end of restrictions with an eventual part-time return to the London Office.

The post holder will be joining a growing team of Officers who each manages a dedicated funding portfolio attached to ClientEarth's programme teams and play a central role in communicating their impactful work to external stakeholders - in particular funders including private trusts and foundations and institutional donors.


They are looking for someone with relevant experience in a grant management or trust and foundations fundraising role for a charity, NGO, private or public entity with a good track record of reporting and drafting proposals for trusts and foundations, and an understanding of an organisation's financial and budgeting requirements. The post holder will be able to work independently, have excellent organisational skills and be efficient in managing and prioritising multiple tasks and deadlines.
