About us

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.
