The Events and Communications Officer is an integral role in helping us to promote the work of the Foundation and the charities we support by leading, devising and delivering an expanding portfolio of Foundation events. Working within the communications team, this role will lead on the Foundation’s flagship annual events as well as scoping, shaping and project managing smaller, more frequent events and webinars for charities and other stakeholders.
In this role you will work closely and develop close working relationships with stakeholders across the Foundation, Lloyds Banking Group, charities and suppliers to deliver events that promote the Foundation’s values and objectives and enhance our reputation. We host a range of online and in person events from smaller learning events to large report launches and funding Q&As.
We are currently devising a new three year strategy due to launch in 2022 so you will be joining the Foundation during an exciting period and have the opportunity to help in the launch.
We are an independent charitable trust funded by the Lloyds Banking Group. We partner with small and local charities helping people overcome complex social issues such as mental health, homelessness and domestic abuse. Their size and understanding of the people and local communities they work with means they are able to make life-changing impact where others cannot. But these charities are under-funded, under pressure and too often ignored.
That’s why we’re more than just a funder – we work in partnership with the charities we fund and others who share our vision.
We listen, understand and respond to charities, funding core costs and providing developmental support for charities to grow stronger and become more sustainable. We influence policy and practice to help charities thrive in the future and to address the causes and consequences of complex social issues.
We encourage applications from all sections of our diverse community, irrespective of age, disability, sex, gender identity, pregnancy, maternity, race (which includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins), sexual orientation, religion or belief, or because someone is married or in a civil partnership. We want an inclusive organisation that reflects our community and where everyone feels empowered to bring their authentic selves to work. We believe our organisation will be a better, more creative and innovative place to work if we can harness the benefit of different perspectives.
The Foundation is committed to making our recruitment practices barrier-free and as inclusive as possible for everyone. This includes making adjustments or changes for people who have a disability or long-term health condition.
If you need any reasonable adjustments for any part of the recruitment process please let us know, in confidence, to discuss these.
