London Community Foundation - Senior Programme Manager

Location: London
Salary: circa £39,000
Closing Date: 12th November
Application Link: here

This important role is perfect for someone looking for a chance to use their skills to maximise their personal and social impact. The successful candidate will be responsible for leading a portfolio of grant programmes which support small, community-based groups across London to achieve social impact. LCF plays a crucial role bringing together community-based organisations and donors, made up of a mixture of corporate partners, individual philanthropists, statutory bodies, and other trusts and foundations. This brings a complexity that requires a sharp mind, great attention to detail, and flexibility in approach. This person will need to become an expert in the issues affecting London and will use this knowledge to raise awareness about how community organisations are making a difference.
This role will entail relationship building, report writing, collaboration and maintaining clear lines of communication. Gathering intelligence in specific thematic areas and working closely with donors to enable the retention, renewal and growth of funds will be important components of this role. This person will be key to nurturing relationships with external stakeholders including boroughs, donors, charities and voluntary groups to widen understanding and to further the work of LCF. This person will also be responsible for managing a small team so previous experience of this will be important.
A thorough understanding of the social sector is key, but a grant making background is not essential; what's more important is that you can demonstrate a commitment to LCF's values and have the skills and attitude to have an impact in the role. You will be somebody who is willing and able to learn quickly, who thrives in a complex business environment.

Demonstrating a track record of managing multi-stakeholder projects that have delivered both results and impact, you will also have knowledge of and commitment to the wider social outcomes of major sport events.
An excellent communicator, you will be creative in your approach with the ability to enthuse, persuade, negotiate and influence.
Above all, you should believe in the role of physical activity and sport in improving people’s lives and be able to influence people to share in that belief, as London Sport works to make London the most physically active city in the world.
