Salary: c £40,000 (depending on experience) plus benefits
Based: Notting Hill, London
Contract: Full time
The Tudor Trust is an independent grant-making charitable trust which supports organisations working to address the many different needs of people at the margins of society, mainly in the UK. We don’t focus our funding on specific themes or programmes, but instead aim to support a wide range of people and organisations working to achieve lasting change in their communities.
About the role
Tudor is thinking carefully about learning: what information we gather, how we use it to become a better grant maker and how we share our learning. We are also considering the important role communication plays within our organisation and in connecting with others. We are asking ourselves, for instance:
- How can we learn in a way which is useful to our applicants, ourselves and the wider funding community?
- How can we reach beneficiaries who may not be ‘traditional’ recipients of foundation funding?
- How can we make reporting and evaluation less onerous and more helpful for the organisations we fund?
Our responses to these challenges will affect the way Tudor as a whole works and communicates. This is why we need a Learning and Communications Manager who will work at the heart of this values-driven organisation, supporting Tudor’s trustees and staff to develop their thinking around learning and evaluation while also taking the lead in implementing new approaches.
The Learning and Communications Manager post is a new role within Tudor, so we are looking for someone who is comfortable working without an established ‘route map’ and who enjoys thinking through and implementing new approaches. Tudor has a very collegiate and consultative style of working, with trustees, staff and associates working closely together. So, you will be confident but inclusive and emotionally intelligent, with a deep-seated respect for the opinions of others and an ability to listen actively and openly. The Learning and Communications Manager will also be a key member of the Information Team, so they will need to become thoroughly knowledgeable about Tudor – about our guidelines, our approach to funding and our grant holders – and use this expertise daily. Because of this we see this as a full-time role, based at our offices: it is not suitable for job share or for remote working.
