Job Description –Senior Trusts and Grants Manager
Reporting to: Head of Fundraising
Location: Hybrid / Office Based
Hours: 35 Hours
Salary: £45,000 - £50,000
FareShare is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, made up of 18 independent organisations. Together, we take good quality surplus food from right across the food industry and get it to almost 10,000 frontline charities and community groups. During 2021, we redistributed 127 million meals, the equivalent of 4 meals every second through our FareShare Regional Centres and our retail surplus model FareShare Go, reaching over 1 million people.
FareShare exists because of two hugely important and highly topical issues.
As a consequence of supply and demand, huge volumes of food are grown or made in the UK and a percentage ends up as unwanted surplus with little commercial value.
At the same time, there are many thousands of frontline community groups and charities that are providing a vital safety net for the most vulnerable in our society. We seek to squeeze as much social good out of that uneconomic surplus by getting it to almost 10,000 such groups across the UK whilst they provide essential wraparound support services for their beneficiaries.
The Cost of Living Crisis and before it, the COVID-19 have shone a spotlight on the issue of food insecurity in the UK and with it, FareShare’s ability to get food to vulnerable communities nationwide.
It is estimated that over 4.7m UK households are now experiencing food insecurity and whilst the equivalent of 1.3bn meals of good surplus food occurs each year, FareShare believes that it is wrong for these two situations to co-exist.
To combat this, FareShare is moving into an ambitious 4 year programme to achieve
unparalleled growth in both our food volumes as well as our
fundraised income. We are driven by the opportunity to secure even more of the food available at farm gate, manufacturing and retail levels and to do this, we
need to maximise our new groundswell of public support to generate the funds needed to operate at this greater scale. There has never been a more
exciting time to join a relevant organisation which delivers both social and environmental impact, at such a crucial time.
By joining us you would be leading some of our most important work in helping us generate more support from Donors, Corporate Food and Fundraising Partners, Foundations and Volunteers as we strive in our ambition to meet the demand for food
to support the UK’s most vulnerable.
FareShare’s Strategy & Vision
Vision: We have the vision of a UK where “No good food goes to waste”.
Mission: To use surplus, fit for consumption, food to feed those who are vulnerable in the UK by supporting front line charitable organisations that tackle the cause and not just the symptoms of food poverty.
Our Purpose: We are doers. We are a community. We change lives.
Our Values: Passion – for our cause and the challenge that lies ahead
Ambition – to go the extra mile and drive the change that must happen
Respect – for ourselves, each other, our volunteers, our partners and our beneficiaries
Collaboration – it’s only by working with others that we can be stronger
Focus – on providing the best service possible so that we deliver and
achieve the most for our clients/customers.

Maudsley Charity already have a good relationship with the Trust but now we want to work more strategically, so staff know who we are and how we’ve supported them in the past, how we can help them and the Trust to make a greater impact on people with mental illnesses, and how they can support us to do that.
We are a small but mighty Fundraising and Communications team, right at the start of our journey, so this role will be both rewarding and challenging. You’ll need to be able to flex between designing well-informed plans that look to the future, to doing the groundwork to get the basics right.

We are committed to offering interviews to candidates who meet the role requirements and have lived experience of mental illness.
The successful candidate will be able to navigate complex organisations, build strong relationships and engage people individually and en masse through a range of channels.

the core mission of community power down to their innovative events”
Simon Kaye, former team member, New Local
“We recruit nice people and encourage them to be friendly, caring colleagues and the senior management model this. Does this make us soft under performers?
Absolutely not. Our membership, revenues and impact grow every year. That's because what drives performance is not whip-cracking managers but clarity of vision, a sense of shared mission and skilled, motivated people.”
Adam Lent, Chief Executive, New Local (view the Twitter thread)
New Local is the proud host of Stronger Things, an annual event that’s become known as the place for equipping and inspiring those that believe the future of public services is community-powered (watch the videos from 2020 and 2022).
The profile of this event has grown massively in recent years and we now want to take it to the next level. Our vision for Stronger Things 2023 is an international festival of community power, a must-attend for professionals and activists from across the globe.

We’re looking for someone who already has extensive experience of events planning, management and delivery. We need a doer as well as a thinker, not afraid to embrace both direction-setting strategic thinking as well as hands-on tasks.
As we move to make Stronger Things financially self-supporting you’ll also need a strong track-record of growing income – a natural at starting and sustaining positive relationships with the fantastic organisations that support community power.
Our brilliant network and events team will support your work and, as the Stronger Things approaches, you’ll be expected to lead staff from across the organisation as everyone pitches in.
Just as important as all the above is someone with the imagination and rigour to keep our events standing out. ‘Keeping the quirky’ might sound cheesy, but for us, it’s a fundamental part of creating the warm, safe and fun space that enables people to share and learn with vulnerability.
Location: New Local operates a highly flexible approach to work location and welcomes applications from across the UK. Applicants must have the right to work in the UK.

- Secure speakers with something to say – Find us rock star speakers who will inspire our audience.
- Keep the quirky – Don't lose sight of the little things that make our events special. This year we ditched our registration desks, had a big pink sofa centre stage and hosted an after-hours jazz band. You’ll beat that.
- Establish and deliver new events - Use the Stronger Things banner to introduce an events programme from scratch.
- Develop our business - Work with our organisation partners to develop new, income-generating, events that help fund our work.
- Protect our data - Use processes, software and systems in a way that protects our event registration data.
- Collaborate with colleagues - Work closely with our research, practice and communications teams, ensuring our events are an asset to their work.
- Muck in - Work alongside the rest of your team (and the rest of the organisation!), sharing in event and member admin, never afraid of getting involved in even the most basic jobs.
Knowledge, skills and experience needed
- Experienced events professional, with a deep understanding and demonstrable background in delivering amazing high-profile events for large audiences.
- Broad-ranging and adaptable, equally comfortable in front of a potential sponsor, attendee spreadsheet and strategy planning session.
- Great communicator, with an ability to write compelling emails and pitch persuasively in-person.
- Relationship-builder, a natural friend-maker for an organisation that relies on strong professional connections
- Data-lover, who is not just an excellent record keeper, but someone who pushes data to spot gaps and opportunities for our organisation.

- Strong organisation and time management skills
- Product development lifecycle
- Experience of working in voluntary & community settings and able to demonstrate a detailed understanding of the role of Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector organisations in building healthier communities that place less pressure on statutory health and care providers
- Managing relationships and stakeholders up to a senior executive level

- Leading on, working collaboratively with and engage colleagues, partners and stakeholders.
