Programme Manager (Grants)

Location: York and London

Salary: £41,000-£48,000 per annum

Full time  37.5 hours per week

Application deadline: Noon, 30 April 2018

The Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust funds campaigns for democratic and political reform.  This is an exciting time to join the Trust at the beginning of a new strategy, agreed last year, with a clear focus for grant-making and Trust activities.

We aim to make the political system open, accountable and collaborative; and for elections that are fair, turnout high and where citizens' votes count. We aim to achieve this, as a limited company, by making grants for campaigning, lobbying or political purposes that are ineligible for charitable funding.

The Role

The Programme Manager will work with the CEO and Board to develop and manage the contribution of JRRT's grants programme to the overall strategy, including the Trust's democracy priorities, rapid response, 'legacy' and capacity building work.  This will primarily involve assessing a wide range of grant applications and managing a porfolio of active grants.

The role will also provide support for the Trust-initiated activities including research, polling, events, party conference fringes and convening.

The Person

The successful candidate will demonstrate ability to design, implement and manage an ambitious grant-making programme. S/he will have a track record achieving change through campaigning or policy change, as part of a campaigning organisation or grant-making Trust. Excellent writing and analytical skills are essential as is a sound grasp of the UK political context and system, and a collaborative approach with experience of building partnerships.

Flextible working patterns would be considered for the right candidate.
