  • Do you have a personal or professional connection to one or more of our priority areas and experience or an understanding of grant making?
  • Are you emotionally intelligent and able to form and develop strong working relationships with a range of individuals and groups?

About the A B Charitable Trust

The A B Charitable Trust funds charities that support marginalised and excluded people, with a focus on:

  • Migrants, refugees and asylum seekers
  • Criminal justice and penal reform
  • Human rights, particularly access to justice

The Trust was founded 32 years ago to promote and defend human dignity. Our grant total was £4.7 million in 2021/22 and is expected to be over £5.7m in 2022/23. The trust is on an exciting journey of growth and this year we are undertaking a strategic review so that we can increase our funding to essential work and have a greater impact.

About the role

The Grants Manager’s role will work closely with the team, trustees and grantees to assess applications and deliver a range of grants. They will work across all three of our priority areas, and will be expected to develop their knowledge in one or more of our areas of interest. Their ability to work closely with grant holders, developing supportive and constructive relationships with them, will be paramount. This is a busy and exciting moment to join the Trust and, because we are a small team, it is an opportunity to be involved in delivering and continuously developing how the Trust will grow over the coming years.

About you

This could be the right opportunity for a range of potential candidates but the A B Charitable Trust would particularly like to hear from you if you: have an understanding or experience of grant making, have emotional intelligence, are a good communicator and relationship builder, are a team player, are flexible, are 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.
