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 north east Scotland. Key responsibilities include supporting volunteer Advisory Panels, co-ordinating grant-making and other fund management activity, and engaging communities in maximising fund opportunities and impact.

The Communities Team distributes place-based funds coming from a range of sources, notably onshore and offshore 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.
