Join Us in Empowering Communities – Grants Officer Vacancy

Do you thrive on connecting with others?

Can you see the potential in ideas, even amidst the challenges?

Are you passionate about empowering communities to drive positive change?

Then our Grants Officer vacancy could be for you!

Due to our continued growth and development, we are looking for two new Grants Officers to join our team to support local communities and third sector organisations to access and receive funding. As a Grants Officer, you won’t just be processing applications—you’ll be shaping the future of our funds and programmes working with communities and fund holders across the West Midlands.

What You’ll Do:

You’ll work alongside a team of seven Grants Officers, under the leadership of our Senior Manager – Programmes. Each day, you’ll engage with projects, assessing applications, preparing for panel meetings and visiting the initiatives we support.

In your first weeks, we’ll welcome you with an in-person induction at our Coventry office. Here, you’ll meet your colleagues, shadow panels and dive deep into our grant-making ethos. Beyond the initial period, we welcome hybrid working with the requirement of joining the team in office two days each week – additional office days may be required for high priority meetings and events.

We’re looking for people from diverse backgrounds who share our values for community impact. Whether through personal or professional experience, you understand the importance of supporting grassroots organisations and their local communities.

Your Strengths:

  • A confident communicator with a collaborative spirit.
  • An innovator who values continuous improvement.
  • Skilled in managing multiple priorities with autonomy.
  • A champion of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Why Join Us:

By working with us, you’ll evolve into a skilled Funding Officer, gaining expertise from the leading, independent grant making foundation in the West Midlands and Warwickshire. Our sector offers ample avenues for growth and development and gives you the chance to give back to real people, with real stories.

At the Foundation, we champion diversity and inclusion. We welcome applications from individuals of all backgrounds—ethnic minorities, LGBTQIA+ individuals, persons with disabilities or health conditions, and those from diverse socio-economic and educational backgrounds.

If you’re ready to turn your passion into purpose, we invite you to join our team and contribute to creating a fairer, happier and healthier Midlands.
