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 Manager’s main focus will be to assess applications and manage grants; they will work closely with the team, Board members and the grant holders. They will work across all of our priority areas and will be expected to develop their knowledge in our areas of interest. Their ability to work closely with grant holders, developing supportive and constructive relationships with them, will be paramount.
The Grants Manager will need to be a team player who can work collaboratively and add value to the work. They will need to be genuinely interested in grant making in our priority areas, and committed to building relationships. The Grants Manager will have emotional intelligence and will genuinely enjoy being part of a small team. It could be the right opportunity for a range of potential candidates. 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.
