Charity registered in Scotland SC035037
Following the launch of our new brand and strategy in February, Impact Funding Partners (formerly Voluntary Action Fund) is enthusiastic and passionate about this new chapter in our history.
With a track record of 36 years managing funds on behalf of the public sector and donors, and distributing £140 million across Scotland, we know a thing or two about creating impact through grants.
We now want to build on our success by expanding our relationship with businesses and donors to create a fairer future for everyone.
Impact Funding Partners is committed to maintaining a diverse Board that reflects the strengths of the people and communities of Scotland. We welcome applications from anyone who is passionate about making a difference in communities, and particularly from people from under-represented groups on charity boards in Scotland, such as women, disabled people, people from ethnic minority communities and people aged under 50.
We would particularly welcome applications from people with experience in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Human Rights, Marketing, Business Development, Philanthropy and the Private Sector.
We are looking for an energetic and motivated Development Officer to join our team, working to support funded projects in the Equally Safe (Violence against Women and Children) Fund and the Rape Crisis Specific Fund. Equally Safe is Scotland’s strategy to prevent and eradicate violence against women and girls, and funding is provided by the Scottish Government.
This is an exciting time to join Impact Funding Partners (formerly known as the Voluntary Action Fund) as we have just had a corporate change of identity and have launched our new three year strategy – Together we can create a Fairer Future.
We are a successful grant manager with 37 years of experience. Our proven approach is to help funders make the most of their investment so that it has the greatest impact. We do this by building capacity and forming trusting relationships which helps organisations achieve even more with their funding.
Our area of expertise is managing funds which tackle inequality in all its forms. Equality and diversity is core to our work and drives everything we do and how we do it.
The successful applicant will recognise the important role of grant management in creating a fairer future and will be committed to supporting funded projects working to address gender based violence and gendered inequality.
We are looking for someone with a solutions based attitude who has relevant grant management skills and experience and who will be responsible for managing a portfolio of funded projects, providing development support, and building positive relationships with funded projects.
Please note that we can only accept applications from women under Schedule 9
(part 1) of the Equality Act 2010.
