Are you a passionate and skilled communicator with experience working in the charity sector in grant-making and/or trusts and foundations?

Charity People are delighted to be partnering with ShareGift, the UK’s only specialist share donation charity, to recruit a Head of Grant-making.

ShareGift release value from shareholdings of all kinds, generating a multi-million pound stream of funding for charities across the UK. Since 1996, ShareGift have made more than 10,000 grants worth almost £50 million and supported over 3,500 charities, providing a vital source of funds that would not otherwise exist.

The charities chosen to receive ShareGift’s grants are suggested by donors and the organisations ShareGift work with, as well as being identified through independent research, with thousands of charitable causes suggested by the donor community as potential ShareGift beneficiaries every year.

Working as part of a small team, the Head of Grant-making will be ShareGift’s key liaison for charities and will promote ShareGift’s work to charity and corporate partners in person, at events and via social media.

Key responsibilities

• Develop and implement charity distributions aligned with ShareGift’s grant-making policy and ethos for approval by the Executive Grant-making Committee.
• Act as the key liaison for charity contacts, including handling enquiries, helping charities to promote share donation to their supporters and act as the champion for ShareGift’s unique grant-making and distribution model.
• Research charitable themes and cause areas, conduct due diligence on potential beneficiary charities, maintain updated records in the CRM system, and record charitable distribution on 360Giving.
• Promote ShareGift’s work at relevant industry events, in publications and via ShareGift’s social media platform (primarily LinkedIn).

The Head of Grant-making will have wide-ranging and detailed knowledge of the charity sector as a whole and grant-making specifically. The successful candidate will also have wider knowledge of fundraising and trends within the sector. You will be able to demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively in person, in writing and via presentations as promoting ShareGift’s work within the charitable sector is a key element of the role. You will be able to work effectively as part of a small team and be able and willing to get involved in a wide variety of tasks as required by the charity. The ideal candidate would have experience in marketing and social media in a professional setting, but this is not essential.

The successful candidate will be based in London or within commutable distance to the office. The role is 2 or 3 days a week (15 – 22.5 hours) and this can be worked flexibly, such as spread across the week or within 2 or 3 days. Ideally you will come into the office near Green Park once a week, but this is flexible.
