We are delighted to work in partnership with Local Trust, an organisation committed to enabling and inspiring people to lead change within their communities.
Local Trust are now into the sixth year of delivering Big Local, a Big Lottery-funded programme that awarded over £1million each to 150Â communities across England that had historically 'missed out' on lottery and other funding. Big Local is one of the most radical and exciting grant programmes ever launched by a major Lottery funder pioneering resident-led, place-based funding on a scale never before seen in the UK.

You will also have the opportunity to review and analyse a range of programme information, identifying areas of risk, support needs or opportunities, and work across the organisation to improve the way they work.
To be considered for this role it is essential to have significant experience of delivering and managing complex community funding programmes including grants and contracts. The successful candidate will come with experience of working with partnerships at a local, regional or national level. You will have proven experience in financial planning and monitoring, with experience of carrying out assessments on funding proposals.
The ideal candidate will have a strong awareness of the needs of residents, grantees and stakeholders accompanied withÂ excellent written and verbal communications skills.
