ACF - Various 

The Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF) has restructured with a view to increasing the scale, effectiveness and impact of its policy and influencing work.

A year into new leadership under chief executive Carol Mack, the restructure will see the organisation increase both the capacity and ambition of its advocacy work on behalf of foundations.

The change comes as a result of an independently conducted survey which identified a desire amongst ACF’s members for it to further boost the confidence and depth that it brings to its public, governmental and legislative interventions.

ACF is also currently recruiting for a new head of policy as well as a policy and communications intern to complete the new team. In addition ACF is looking for an Events and Administration Officer. More information can be found on ACF's job site
