Become part of People’s Postcode Lottery’s team!

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a dynamic and growing business where people are at the heart of everything we do. We live by our four core values - fun, sharing, courageous and sustainable - and we expect the same from our colleagues. Offering above the ‘average’ holiday allowance at 37 days per year, along with a generous pension scheme, free fresh fruit and refreshments in the office, we look after our team!

We encourage you to spend days volunteering with our charity partners and we commit to investing 4% of salaries into training each year. Perhaps that’s why our team voted us in the top ten in the Sunday Times Top 100 mid-size companies to work for in 2019!

What we do?

As one of the world’s top fundraising private charity donors, giving to good causes is our mission. We manage multiple society lotteries promoted by different charities supporting a wide range of causes. Since 2005, our players have raised more than £500 million for over 7,500 charities and good causes across Great Britain and internationally.

Role Summary

Charities are at the heart of the organisation and this position is crucial in helping to deliver the wide-ranging, exciting and incredible work funded by our players.

Our impact is focused on four keys areas; collaboration, capability, capacity and leverage. We are a true partner to our charities and our relationship offers far more than just funding. We are committed to ensuring that our players remain connected with the causes they help support. As a funder, we also remain faithful to our funding principles and ensure that we are an enlightened partner in our efforts to make the world a better place for people and planet.

As a part of the Charities Team, you must be able to support your direct colleagues as well as ensure that the wider Postcode Lottery team remains passionate about the good causes we support.

Each year, the Community Programmes Team process over 6,000 applications for funding received by People’s Postcode Trust, Postcode Community Trust and Postcode Local Trust. Over 2,000 good causes were supported last year by these Trusts for projects across Great Britain.

The right candidate will have experience in funding, fundraising or account/relationship management, be able to manage complex projects and processes, have a clear understanding of the charity sector and be able to learn quickly and maintain enthusiasm for the changes in the sector and our related support.
