Associate Director (Transforming Funding) 

Are you interested in how funders, philanthropists corporates and impact investors can make the most of their resources to make society better? NPC is looking for an Associate Director to lead its busy and innovative Transforming Funding consulting team.   

NPC is the leading, independent consultancy and think tank for the UK social sector, working with charities, philanthropic funders and policymakers to achieve the greatest possible social impact for the people that need it. We help organisations improve their social impact, we influence policy and sector behaviour, and we support innovation in the sector. By working across charities, funders, businesses and government, we have a unique perspective and influence, while our consultancy department works with some of the leading organisations advancing great practice. As a hub for ideas, questions and debate, we have a lively work environment, and a supportive community of colleagues and collaborators.   

This role 

We are looking for an Associate Director to lead the Transforming Funding team. This is an exciting opportunity if you have a passion for how funders, philanthropists, impact investors and corporates make social impact. You will work with a team of experienced consultants to develop new products, move into new markets and respond to the changing needs of the social sector. The Transforming Funding team helps organisations think about their resources and how they can best make a difference—be that through their investments, their CSR strategies, the money they give to charity, or the support they put in alongside funding.  You will run 1-2-1 consultancy projects as well as sector wide initiatives that challenge and support the sector. You will have a prominent role in business development, represent NPC within the charity sector, and advise colleagues. You will set the ambition for the team and manage the Transforming Funding team to deliver that vision. 

The things we are looking for include: 

  • Experience and knowledge of the foundation, philanthropy, impact investing or corporate markets.  
  • A passion for helping these markets be more impactful.  
  • Experience in key skills such as grant-making, impact investing, systems change, strategy or theory of change.  
  • A track record of successfully scoping, selling, and overseeing projects.  
  • Working with stakeholders to achieve impact—through client relationships and wider stakeholders in the sector.  
  • A readiness for team leadership and a senior management role.   

The diversity of work and topics, autonomy, intellectual stimulation and supportive culture makes this a special role. But we understand nobody has everything in the job description. What’s more important to us is a real enthusiasm for the job, and we are committed to supporting and developing you through informal and formal learning and training.
