Foundation Scotland was established to help people and organisations give to good causes effectively and inexpensively. Since 1996 the Foundation has been delivering innovative funding programmes distributing over £70 million to charities and community groups. Our knowledge of the sector allows us to find lesser known charities ensuring our awards create lasting change.
We wish to recruit a number of freelance assessors with varied experience and knowledge of the voluntary sector to assess grant applications from organisations delivering community projects in Scotland. The purpose of these assessor roles is to make objective comprehensive assessments regarding applications for funding from a range of funds managed by the Foundation Scotland. The position is a part time and freelance commitment. You will work from home and will be paid a fee, dependent upon complexity. You’ll need to be available for this work on a flexible and occasionally out of hours’ basis across the year. You will be expected to liaise with applicants over the telephone and to collate and analyse information gathered throughout the assessment process before writing up a thorough and objective assessment report.
Assessors will be recruited because of their analytical skills, clarity of reporting, and background knowledge of voluntary organisations and social issues. It is an important feature of this process that assessors can assess the structure of the applicant organisation and the proposals for their projects while retaining independence from decision making. Experience of assessing is an advantage, but we are interested in transferable skills (analytical, report writing, communication skills, for example) and experience in the social sector (voluntary, community and charity sector). Access to a phone, PC, broadband connection and email are essential.
