We’re seeking an experienced trusts and foundations fundraiser to cover the maternity leave of our grants officer for up to twelve months.

Foundation Scotland [FS] is part of a global network of 1,800 community foundations which encourage and manage philanthropy and other independent funding, and which strengthen voluntary and community sectors where they operate. A quality accredited and independent registered charity, FS is the only community foundation in Scotland. With a national role, and with a local reach, we enable independent funding to improve the lives of individuals and communities.
Assessment of applications for funding is a core activity in the Foundation. The range of programmes managed leads to some differences, such as in the purpose of funding, and size and duration of funding awards. The number and range of funds we operate have grown significantly. In one area of the Foundation we received 1500 applications in a year, carried out over 500 assessments, and made awards of between £2,000 and £50,000.
To help process the volume of grants, in recent years we have recruited several freelance assessors to help manage the workload in this area. Freelance assessors deliver an important function, contributing to the efficient and effective running of the Foundation and, ultimately, contributing to greater impact across Scotland’s communities.
As our work continues to grow, we are seeking a coordinator to assist in the administration, development and training of freelance assessors. We also see the role taking on some assessment workload to support our work and, importantly, to identify and recommend potential improvements to our process and grant making policies across the organisation.
