Foundation Scotland is an independent charity that provides funding to charities, social enterprises and community organisations. We do this on behalf of over 400 individuals, charitable trusts and companies.
Our Communities Team enables and empowers communities across Scotland to devise and implement their own strategies for local funds coming from a range of sources, notably community benefit arrangements with onshore wind farms. We provide fund governance, grant administration and related services for a range of commercial and community-sector clients, combined with a commitment to community-led approaches.
We are looking for a well organised, adaptable and motivated Administrator to join our South Scotland team.
Working closely with the Community Funds Manager and three Community Fund Coordinators the post will help ensure quality grant-making and fund distribution that serves clients and communities.
You will be the first point of contact for South Scotland grant application enquiries and implement a high volume of grant-making administration, working routinely with Salesforce and supporting ongoing systems innovation and development.
If you have excellent interpersonal, communication and IT skills, interest in grant-making and can work proficiently and with attention to detail – we’re keen to hear from you.
The post is based in our Gatehouse of Fleet office and involves a job-share arrangement with an already established job share partner.
Foundation Scotland offers a range of staff benefits including Pension Scheme, Life Assurance, 2 days volunteering per year (pro-rata), flexible working options and a progressive pay system.
We are at an exciting point as a charity, with big challenges, big ambitions, and the passion and energy to make big change happen. We need trustees to help us to realise our potential and we want Board membership to reflect the diverse society of the UK and its differing healthcare systems. We would like our trustees to include young people and underrepresented communities. You may already have experience at Board level, but this is not essential and to help us achieve our ambitions we are very keen to talk those who may have knowledge of the health care/cancer sector in Scotland.
You will also share our passion and determination to transform the future for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer.
We need to stop pancreatic cancer taking too many lives, too soon. We hope you will join us.
