What’s the job?
This year we will be launching a new Resource Hub to support the growth of place based giving, a growing movement across London and beyond, which puts more funding and decision making into the hands of local people. Based on the idea that we all have something to give, it brings together people, ideas, passion and money and finds new ways to use these assets to benefit the community and bring about change.
We are looking for a Director to lead this exciting new piece of work, which will build on the legacy of the London’s Giving programme and transform the reach and potential of place based giving in London and beyond. We have secured three years of funding from the City Bridge Foundation for this phase of the Hub as part of a ten year funding commitment.
Who are we looking for?
This role requires someone who can put ambitions into practice, with excellent project management skills and the ability to balance multiple strands of work. But you will also need to be a strong strategic thinker, able to build connections across the sectors to advocate for change, influence practice across the funding community, and take advantage of new opportunities as the Hub develops.
One aspect of the role will be to work with the London funders team and the Hub’s Steering Group to develop the long term vision for the Hub. London Funders has agreed to initially host the Hub , and during this time the Director will be tasked with exploring the best long term structure and resourcing for the Hub, building on recommendations developed as part of the Hub’s feasibility study in 2022. You’ll need to be a natural collaborator with a track record of bringing diverse partners together to develop and achieve shared goals. You will also be someone who can bring their own ideas to help develop the future ambition and resourcing of this work.
We're proud of the diversity and vibrancy of our city, and work to champion equity and justice in all that we do. We are actively working to make sure we reflect our community in our staff team, and are particularly welcoming of applicants from Black and racially minoritised communities, and from people with disabilities, to help strengthen the diversity of thought and experience in our team.
