Why join us?
Are you motivated to work for an organisation that is committed to alleviating the impact of spending cuts and welfare reform on people’s lives? Do you want to use your strong administration skills in a way that will be transformative for a small but growing and ambitious charitable foundation? If so, then you may be the right candidate for this new role at the Longleigh Foundation.
The Longleigh Foundation is a grant-making charity established by the social housing provider, Stonewater. Our social mission is to provide funding that enables lives to be transformed. Our funding programmes support Stonewater residents on an individual basis and community-based projects. Our priority areas include, health and wellbeing; social isolation; inclusion and community cohesion and we work particularly with young and older people, people with disabilities and learning difficulties; people with mental health issues and those who are subjected to domestic violence.
About the Role
The Grants Programme Administration Officer will need to provide a high standard of administrative support across our Individual, Projects and Research Grants programmes. They will provide high quality customer service to all stakeholders, including Stonewater residents, Stonewater staff members, applicants for our funding, representatives of funded projects and other external partners. Another key aspect of the role is to lead on the development of an Approved Supplier List to ensure that all suppliers of goods and services funded via our Individual Grants Programme are of high quality, safety and suitability to work in the homes of residents.
We are looking for someone who believes in our social mission and wants to be in a values-led working environment, where our values – transformative, passionate, aspirational, collaborative, agile – are truly lived.
Our ideal candidate will radiate a personable approach. You’ll recognise the importance of great service in all interactions with stakeholders; of well organised and high-quality administrative processes; and you’ll have the experience and skills to ensure we get our funding delivered efficiently and effectively.
Whilst being an experienced administrator, you don’t have to have worked on funding programmes or in the charitable sector before – but you’ll need to demonstrate a genuine empathy right across the priority themes we support with our funding. As befits a small team, you’ll need to enjoy working flexibly and in close collaboration with others.
We’re still relatively new, but we’re growing and developing. So, this is a good time to join us and come on the journey. For the right person, we’re a place where you can develop, have opportunity and a place where your ideas to improve how we transform lives will be embraced. If this sounds like the kind of place you’d like to work, then please consider applying for this role.
