Job Board

CLOSED: Grants Officer, The Bromley Trust


Title: Grants Officer
Salary: £32,000–£36,000
Location: London

Why join us?

Would you like to play a key role in a charitable trust that is working to offset ‘man’s inhumanity to man’ and bring about positive social change?
Comprising a small, dedicated team of staff and trustees, the Bromley Trust provides grants to UK registered charities working on human rights and prison reform issues. Working closely with the Director, the Grants Officer will play a key role overseeing the day-to-day management of the grants programme. This role will also involve ensuring that the Trust is effectively administered.

The role of Grants Officer

This role offers the opportunity for someone ready and able to play a significant role in a progressive grant-making Trust. The team is very small, so you will have the chance to get involved in all areas of the Trust’s work, contributing at a strategic and organisational level, as well as being involved in the development and delivery of the grants programme. Although having grant-making experience will be an advantage, we are open to receiving applications from candidates with different backgrounds who can demonstrate a lot of potential, dedication and the ability to grow into the role quickly. The attractions of the role include:

  • Having a lot of autonomy over planning your day-to-day work
  • Working closely with the organisations we support and learning about their valuable work
  • Ensuring that the Bromley Trust as an organisation and its grant-making processes are effectively administered, and
  • Supporting the Director and Trustees in their work to develop the Trust’s future strategy and build on its impact to date

About you

For the right person, this is an exciting and career-enhancing role. It could be a great opportunity for a range of potential candidates and we welcome and encourage applications from all suitably qualified people regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age. Your motivations might be many and varied – from wanting to develop your career in grant-making beyond the administration of grants, to being passionate about social change, to enjoying working independently as part of a small team. Whatever your motivations, we want to hear about them and we want to hear from you, particularly if you have:

  • The ability to help the Bromley Trust effectively manage its grants programme, adding value to its overall strategy as well as to the delivery and detail of the work
  • A talent for effective administration and helping a small team to maximise its impact
  • A commitment to and interest in learning more about human rights and prison reform
  • High levels of self-motivation, reliability and trustworthiness and an ability to work on your own for a large part of the week as well as with the Director, and
  • A friendly and collaborative approach to building relationships with colleagues, Trustees, applicants, grantees and partner funders.
