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 with a focus on programme development, you'll play an important role in shaping Local Trust's approach over the remainder of the programme.

You'll have access to great research, insight from local people and be part of a high performing team. You'll have a wide-ranging portfolio including: policy development, asset acquisition and partnerships setting up legal entities; support packages to address particular issues such as Big Locals struggling to spend their funding, stalling and responding to the COVID19 pandemic; and new areas requiring development such as how we support communities to plan their legacy.

We're looking for someone with a good understanding of operational grant-making in a community context, but with a strong ability to think and act strategically, creatively and collaboratively across Local Trust and external partners.

It's incredibly important that you are able to develop and deliver multiple projects concurrently across different areas of focus. You'll be a fantastic facilitator and a strong communicator, capable of presenting complex ideas in a clear and accessible way to a variety of audiences.

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.

Flexible, life and family-friendly organisation. We're open to candidates being based regionally across England or in London. You'll be working from home for now, but longer-term there will be a need to travel nationally and regular travel to the London office.

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. Amelia Lee and Ellen Drummond your Charity People consultants for this role.

Deadline: 9am on Monday 18th January
Interview: Friday 29th January
