As one of the UK’s leading Community Foundations and with a permanent endowment of £40 million, last year alone we distributed 997 grants worth almost £4million across the West of England. This funding supports voluntary and community organisations working to improve the lives of local people.
As our Grants Officer you will play an important part in carefully assessing grant applications and carrying out due diligence checks. Your recommendations to our grant’s panels, which involve over 100 people across our area, will be crucial in ensuring our grants reach the grassroot organisations here that are so vital in supporting our communities.
This is a great opportunity for a person with a strong commitment to the role and value of local community support; someone who has excellent written communication skills and wants to use their talent to ensure our grant programmes make a big difference. The Grants Officer will:
· Assess applications for grants programmes and make recommendations to, service and attend, decision meetings of the grants programme panels
· Maintain and provide up-to-date information and advice on Quartet’s grants programmes
· Support grants administration and finance functions
We’re looking for someone with experience of assessment work and with good communication and interpersonal skills.
If supporting communities excites you then we want to hear from you.
