Job description

The Prince’s Countryside Fund wishes to appoint a Senior Grants Officer to help deliver our growing grant programme.

This is an exciting time to join the PCF as we are working to enable thriving family farms and empower rural communities, who are encouraged and recognised for their role in creating a sustainable future for the countryside and our whole nation. We give award over £500,000 each year in grants to local rural community-led projects, and since 2010 have given out over £10million to nearly 400 organisations.

The PCF now seeks an enthusiastic new member of our team to oversee our growing grant programme. The role will include managing a £500k+ grant programme each year, growing our network of current and past grant beneficiaries, as well as overseeing the communications of the grant programme and measuring its impact.

The successful candidate must be an excellent communicator, able to work closely with our network of grant beneficiaries, as well as the wider PCF team, and be as passionate about the British countryside as we are!

While experience of grant-making is not essential, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate project delivery, financial acumen, ability to deliver against a set process, attention to detail, meet deadlines and report accurately.

This is a key role in the PCF team, and while based in Victoria, London, there is scope for some home working, as well as travel around the UK to meet our grant beneficiaries.

Our ambition is to increase our help to those rural communities across the UK that wish to become more self-sufficient and viable, by focusing our support on local, community-led solutions. As this aspect of the PCF’s work grows, there is opportunity for the successful candidate to develop the scope and shape of our grant programmes to create a real future for rural Britain.

Since its establishment by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010, The Prince’s Countryside Fund has carved out a niche position as a national charity which aims to improve the prospects of family farm businesses and the quality of rural life. We are committed to promoting a confident, robust and sustainable agricultural and rural community which is universally appreciated for its vital contribution to the British way of life and fit to support future generations.

Closing date: 12 August 2021. Interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis and we may appoint before the closing date.
