Grants Manager (Maternity Cover)
Garfield Weston Foundation is a highly regarded, family-founded grant-giving trust, which has been supporting charities across the UK for over 60 years, and is one of the top five grant-giving organisations in the UK.
We are currently working together to recruit an Interim Grants Manager (Maternity Cover) for up to 14 months. The successful candidate will be instrumental in the grant-giving activities of the Foundation.
You will be working as part of a small, friendly and motivated team and will take ownership of a wide and varied range of activities, including reviewing grant applications, making evidence based recommendations to Trustees, reviewing awarded grants, assessing progress reports in addition to representing the Foundation at seminars and events. You will also be keeping accurate data records, conducting ad hoc research projects on charity sector dynamics and grants analysis when necessary.
The organisation is committed to being an outstanding grant maker - you will be highly personable with the intellect, confidence and communication skills to build long lasting relationships with people at all levels. Analytical and systematic, you will be comfortable handling a very busy workload whilst maintaining a calm and personal touch.
The role will suit a decisive and articulate team player whose experience may have been gained in either the commercial or charity sectors. Highly organised and capable, you have proven ability to create excellent relationships with a range of people and stakeholders.
This role represents a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate to play a key role in the Foundation's continued success and to develop a career in grant-making.
If you feel you offer the necessary attributes, enthusiasm and ambition, we are very keen to hear from you.
