Company Profile

The Life Changes Trust is an independent Scottish charity, established in April 2013 with a ten year, £50 million “spend-out” endowment from the Big Lottery Fund (now the National Lottery Community Fund).

The Trust’s mission is to facilitate and support transformational and sustainable improvements in the quality of life, well-being, empowerment and inclusion of two key groups in Scotland:

· Care experienced young people

· People affected by dementia

The Trust works closely with our beneficiaries as well as policy makers, service providers and other stakeholders to ensure that our funding and influencing activities are targeted in ways that will bring the greatest benefit to our beneficiaries.

This is a great opportunity to work with a visionary charity which is committed to investing in real and sustainable improvements in the lives of care experienced young people and people affected by dementia


It is essential that the successful candidate has significant experience of high quality funding administration. You will work as part of the wider Trust team to ensure that funding management is well integrated with evaluation and influencing work.

You will be required to work across both programmes - Care Experienced Young People and Dementia. The Life Changes Trust is a time-limited organisation working until March 2023.

The ideal candidate will be reflective with excellent analytical skills, be beneficiary/customer focused with a willingness to acquire knowledge of the issues facing care experienced young people and people affected by dementia.
