We have an exciting opportunity for a well organised and motivated individual to join our Communities team, coordinating a portfolio of community benefit funds in north east 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 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.
The post will primarily cover parts of North East Scotland including Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray. However, there is a requirement to occasionally travel more widely in Scotland, including occasional overnight stays. The post is ideally home based in the North East but a leased desk space in a shared office facility or community venue 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.
To apply, please email a CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org demonstrating your fit to the role profile and person specification. Please state where you saw this advert in your covering letter.
Closing date for applications: Monday 24th February 2020
Interviews are expected to take place: in Perth on Friday 6th March 2020
