We are looking for a helpful and organised person with great communication skills and a passion for sustainability to join our friendly team.
Bioregional is an internationally award-winning social enterprise and charity working at the cutting edge of sustainability. Our work on eco-communities and enterprises has influenced policy and industry practice in the UK and around the world. We currently employ 30 people in the UK and have a turnover of £1.5 million, with grants typically accounting for 20-30% of our income. We have a number of well-developed and compelling projects which you could help to make a reality.
We need an experienced grants fundraiser who will be confident working both autonomously and closely with the CEO and senior team to maintain our level of grant income.
The main day-to-day activity will be managing the progress of bids from conception to completion alongside the project managers. Statutory grant opportunities often come up as a natural part of our work and the team will bring bids to you for your support in the process. You will also have the opportunity to develop and lead some bids yourself, particularly to Trusts and Foundations. You will maintain a strategic overview of opportunities, support and build staff capacity, and manage our relationships with funders.
The role is based at our offices at the award-winning BedZED eco-village in Hackbridge, Sutton, south London, on the mainline Victoria and Thameslink train lines. Some homeworking is acceptable.
We offer 6% employer’s ethical pension contribution and 25 days’ annual leave rising by one day a year for the first five years.
