Hammersmith United Charities has been at the heart of Hammersmith for more than 400 years. We were founded in 1618 to provide housing for local older people in our Almshouses and to invest in the future of our community through our grant making.
Each year the Charity gives £400,000 to around 35 local community organisations supporting people most in need in Hammersmith.
This is a terrific opportunity for someone at the early stages of, or looking to begin, their career in grant making.
Key activities involve supporting the management of the grants programme, contributing to raising the profile of the organisation and the impact of our grant holders, and maintaining the grants database.
Hammersmith United Charities is part of our community, and it is important that the Grants and Community team are in touch with what is happening in Hammersmith and the rest of our small team. This involves frequent visits to grant holders, partners or networking meetings as well as hands on involvement with the life of the Almshouses.
We are seeking an individual who is passionate about community, loves working with people, is flexible and thrives in a changing environment, genuinely enjoys administration and takes pride in excellent attention to detail.
We particularly welcome applications from people with a strong connection to Hammersmith and Fulham.
