Community Fund Co-ordinator

  • Full time
  • £32,071
  • Edinburgh but with regular travel around Eastern Central Scotland
  • Closing 13th September 2019

  • Advertised from 20th August 2019
  • Full-time, permanent (35 hours per week). Annual leave entitlement: 35 days (incl. 10 public holidays).


We have an exciting opportunity for a well organised and motivated individual to join our Communities team, co-ordinating a portfolio of community benefit funds in central Scotland. Key responsibilities include supporting volunteer Advisory Panels, co-ordinating grant-making and other community fund activity, and engaging communities in maximising fund opportunities and impact.

Foundation Scotland enables and empowers communities to devise and implement their own strategies for local funds coming from a range of sources, notably 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 to fund strategy and distribution.

If you have excellent communication skills, practical experience in grant-making, community facilitation and capacity building then we’re keen to hear from you.

The post will primarily cover parts of Central Scotland including parts of Fife, Perth & Kinross and the Scottish Borders (East). However, there is a requirement for flexibility to occasionally travel more widely in Scotland, including occasional overnight stays. The post is ideally based in our Edinburgh office, but location in Glasgow may be possible.

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.
