About the A B Charitable Trust
The A B Charitable Trust funds organisations that support the most marginalised and excluded people, with a focus on:
- Migrants, refugees and people seeking asylum
- Justice system and penal reform
- Human rights
- Access to justice
The Trust was founded 33 years ago to promote and defend human dignity. Our grant total was £5.7 million in 2022/23 and is expected to be over £6.5m in 2023/24.
Grants are made through three funding streams: An open programme, the special initiatives programme and the anchor programme.
The team works collaboratively and collegiately and shares a commitment to providing a professional grants programme and to being supportive to everyone who comes into contact with the Trust.
About the role
The Grants Administrator’s focus will be to work closely with the team and Board members, ensuring that the work of Trust continues to be administered to high standard. As the first point of contact for the organisation it will be key that you enjoy providing supportive communications, both over the phone and via email. We are committed to best practice and continuous learning and improvement, and the Grants Administrator will need to share these values.
This could be the right opportunity for a range of potential candidates but whatever your motivations, the A B Charitable Trust would like to hear from you, particularly if you have experience of a range of administrative systems and processes, have emotional intelligence, are a good communicator and relationship builder, a team player, are flexible, organised, and have a demonstrable passion for our work. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates who have a live connection to the kinds of organisations and groups we fund and/or lived experience of our priority areas.
We value, welcome and respect all the differences that make us who we are, including: age, cultural background, disability and mental health, ethnicity and race, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and social background.
