Programme Manager - Funding and Relationships

First and foremost, we want to be clear that we warmly welcome all candidates, from all backgrounds, to apply for these positions.

Charity People is over the moon to be collaborating once again with Local Trust. Over the next few years the support Local Trust provides to the communities it serves will be more important than ever - and their plan is to meet that need head on.

Big Local is one of the most radical and exciting grant programmes ever launched by a major lottery funder. Between 2010 and 2012, the National Lottery Community Fund identified 150 areas that had historically missed out on lottery and other funding. Each of those areas was allocated £1m of Big Local funding. This could be spent in any way they chose, provided residents organised themselves locally to plan and manage that funding, involving the wider community in the decision-making process.

The Programmes team is at the heart of what Local Trust does. As Programme Manager you will lead on Local Trusts core grant making activity and will be managing a small team. This includes a particular focus on the delivery of the Big Local programme and Local Trusts work directly to support areas through high quality assessment and monitoring of plans, activities and funding.

The post also plays a key role in the effective management of risk through developing and implementing appropriate systems, policies and procedures that drive a culture of continuous improvement, supporting the work of the Head of Programme Delivery. This includes oversight of contracts related to Local Trust's funding programmes, managing a range of stakeholder relationships and providing expert advice and guidance on complex and challenging issues

We're looking for someone with significant experience of managing and delivering complex/large scale funding programmes ideally supporting grassroots/community-based organisations.

It's is important that you have experience of people management, including staff teams, organisations operating on delivery contracts and are able to develop and deliver multiple projects concurrently across different areas of focus.

You are values-driven and a self-starter with the ability to work on your own initiative with a high level of autonomy. You're also inquisitive and creative and you care deeply about your work.

Excellent benefits including 10% employer contribution pension.

If you have read this and feel strongly that this your next job, please get in touch with a copy of your CV in the first instance with Kate Headford your Charity People consultant for this role.

Deadline: 12 noon on Monday 18th January 2021.
