The Clothworkers' Foundation was set up by The Clothworkers' Company in 1977, and aims to improve the lives of people and communities, particularly those facing disadvantage. They award capital grants to UK charities, and bursaries and fellowships to qualified conservators. Since they established, the Foundation has awarded grants of more than £125m.

We are delighted to be working with the Foundation to recruit a Senior Grant Officer on a 12 month (flexible) maternity contract to join their team. This key role will work closely with the Head of Grants and the wider team to ensure the management of the effective and efficient grant-making of the organisation.

This will involve managing the main capital grant-making programme, administrating the GIFTS and IGAMS online application system, overseeing the visitor programme of Clothworkers' members who meet and assess grant recipients, and providing full budgetary audit, reconciliations and analysis to the committee. This person will also lead on essential stakeholder relationships and will work closely with other team members to ensure systems and procedures run smoothly.

The successful candidate will have demonstrable, significant experience as a Grants Officer and will be educated to degree level or the equivalent. This person will be highly organised, numerate and logical in their approach to problem solving with an outstanding eye for detail and a professional and friendly demeanour. Experience of managing projects and volunteer programmes is desirable but not essential. Collaboration is paramount in this small and vibrant team of four so in addition to having an empathy with the work of the organisation, this person will need to be resourceful, positive and an excellent communicator with a good sense of humour.
