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. This coming year, the communities Local Trust serve need them more 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 Senior Programme Coordinator working in the Area Support team you'll set up, deliver and monitor contracts; managing complex stakeholder relationships and providing advice and guidance to those accessing support.
Leading on the development and delivery of a high-quality, tailored programme of support for groups and stakeholders, you'll develop, implement and manage the practical aspects of delivery at every level.
We're looking for someone with experience of working on large, complex community funding programmes (e.g. contracts or grants); working with a tried-and-tested community development approach.
It's incredibly important that you have experience of working in partnership with multi-agencies, confidently building and maintaining complex professional relationships. You have excellent written communication skills too; able to produce and monitor reports, work plans and documentation for a variety of audiences, including funders.
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 flexible and entrepreneurial and you care deeply about your work.
Based regionally with flexible base across England. You'll be working from home for now, but longer-term you will need to travel nationally with regular travel to the London office. Flexible, life and family-friendly organisation.
Excellent benefits including 10% employer contribution pension.
