Job description

The Cares Family’s mission is to help people find connection in a disconnected age. Our objectives are to reduce loneliness and isolationimprove people’s connection, belonging, purpose and power in a changing world; and bring people together to reduce social, generational, digital, cultural and attitudinal divides.

Over the last decade our model has grown from a tiny idea in a single place into a national leader. Combined, North London Cares (founded in 2011), South London Cares (2014), Manchester Cares (2017), Liverpool Cares (2018) and East London Cares (2019), have connected some 25,000 older and younger neighbours to share nearly 1 million interactions and 250,000 hours.

As well as having an impact on individual lives and communities, in the past three years, The Cares Family has started to have an impact at the systemic and cultural levels too – through new projects, storytelling and campaigning that are rapidly increasing our profile and making an even bigger difference.

As The Cares Family’s Grants Coordinator, you will work closely with our Head of Development, Partnerships Manager, and the wider Development Team of 11 fundraisers to provide exceptional relationship management for our active grants and portfolio of hundreds of Trusts and Foundations.

In this role, you will be tasked with identifying new opportunities and engaging with new and existing funders by composing timely and high quality written proposals and impact reports. Your excellent stewardship and relationship management face to face, on the phone and in writing will enable you to maximise opportunities, uplift gifts and secure new income for The Cares Family.

You will generate a minimum of £100,000 a year from small and medium sized Trusts and Foundations(grants of up to £25,000 each) across the five branches of The Cares Family.

This is an exciting time to join our friendly, high performing and ambitious fundraising team. Our Trust function has grown significantly over the past three years. This role will crucially enable the team to build on its successes to date to maximise opportunities, steward our growing portfolios, secure new partnerships and raise vital new income.

With so much of this role depending on excellent account management, we need a real people-person, someone who considers themselves to be an excellent communicator and writer, who can build relationships and craft compelling written narratives, often at pace.

To apply for this role, please read the job description and application task descriptions carefully, and submit your application by Wednesday 2nd February 2022, at 23:59.
