We have distributed over £42 million in grants to date across Leeds and Bradford, enabling positive change in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in our communities.

Over the next five years, our Plan 2024: Ambitious for All, will ensure that we are agile in response to social and economic challenges. To support our future plans, it is crucial that we establish a firm foundation for long-term resilience and steady growth.

We are looking for a Programmes Director to join us in achieving our vision of creating cities of opportunity for all in Leeds and Bradford.

The Benefits 

- Salary of £40,000 - £50,000 DOE (FTE)
- Pension (contributions start at 4%)
- 24 days’ holiday plus Bank Holidays and a Christmas close-down
- Play a key role in our Senior Leadership Team
- Offices in Leeds city centre 
- Business mileage allowance for a business vehicle (we encourage use of public transport where possible) 
- We are willing to consider applicants wishing to work part time or full time

If you have expertise in intelligent and impactful grant-making and building lasting relationships with public sector colleagues or charitable trusts/foundations, this is a superb opportunity to help make Leeds and Bradford cities where everyone can prosper. 

We are a team of passionate individuals who are eager to serve local people. Within an environment of honesty, openness and ambition, you will have the chance to play an important role in the overall strategic planning, leadership and governance of our Foundation. 

The communities in Leeds and Bradford have faced inequality and deprivation for years, and challenges continue to multiply. There is a growing need to advocate for more targeted support for grassroots, community-led investment. If you are driven, determined and believe you could be a catalyst for positive change, we want to hear from you.

The Role

As the Programmes Director, you will lead on our public sector partnerships and ensure our grant-making activities are executed effectively, carefully monitored and evaluated. 

In this new role, you will ensure our programmes are well-integrated into all key areas of activity.

You will:

- Line manage, inspire and support the Head of Grants and Head of Evaluation & Impact
- Nurture long-term relationships with new and existing public sector colleagues, as well as with some national funders
- Support our community and third sector engagement work 
- Work with the Chief Executive to encourage collaborations with regional and national partners, including local government, NHS, police and public bodies
- Represent the Foundation at events and networking opportunities

About You 

To join us as our Programmes Director, you will need: 

- Experience of programme development and/or grant-making experience
- Experience of line managing teams and motivating individuals 
- A proven track record of soliciting and securing large funds from the public sectors or charitable trusts and/or foundations 
- Previous experience of creating and managing longer-term strategies 
- Experience of working directly with a board of trustees and/or directors
- Previous networking experience, with the ability to build relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders

Experience of any of the following would be beneficial: working with volunteers, cross-sector working, working in philanthropy or funding environments and/or collating evidence of impact across a geographic area. 

We would like to hear from you if you’ve worked as a Programmes Director, Head of Grants, or Director of Grants Development.

Applications for part time or full time will be considered for this role, working 28 – 35 hours per week, usually Monday – Friday, between 9:00 – 17:00. You will occasionally be required to work outside normal office hours for events and functions – time off in lieu will be given where excessive out of hours working is required.

The closing date for applications is the 3rd November 2019, with interviews scheduled to be held on the 18th and 19th November 2019. 

Leeds Community Foundation is an equal opportunities employer. We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and we particularly encourage applications from people with disabilities, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, and trans and non-binary people, who are currently under-represented within our staff team.
