Job description

We value diversity, and warmly welcome candidates from all backgrounds to apply.

Slade Gardens Community Play Association CIO (SGCPA) is a small children’s charity based in Stockwell, Lambeth, open to all children, free to use, and offering safe, supervised play, activities and opportunities.

Situated in one of the most densely populated areas of the UK, the SGCPA is a much loved community run charity, which benefits from over an acre of outside space including an adventure playground, garden area and games pitch as well as indoor facilities. We have planning permission to rebuild our main building and have been supported with a £1million match funding grant from Lambeth Council.

This exciting new position comes at a pivotal time in the SGCPA’s development. You will be responsible for our fundraising strategy and implementation as the SGCPA pursues its redevelopment plans. You will have particular responsibility for project management and developing existing governance, including taking on responsibility for some core functions from the trustee board.

You will work with our small part-time team including the Playground Manager, Playworkers and other support staff and volunteers, to develop our work with local children, and ensure use of the site is maximised and our charitable objectives achieved.

The role is wide ranging and challenging, but has the opportunity to ensure that this small community charity makes a big difference to the lives of local children and the wider community. We are happy to consider job sharing applications.

You will be dynamic and efficient, with a passion for supporting children and young people. You will be a strategic thinker, experienced in fundraising and skilled in planning and delivering major projects, as well as being able to demonstrate a people-focussed and collaborative approach.

Closing Date: Friday 26 March by no later than 12:00.

Interviews: Will take place between 9 – 14 April 2021
