We are recruiting for a part-time Grants and Trusts Fundraiser

Good Vibrations is a small but, internationally-respected charity, working in the UK. We use communal music-making to support people with complex needs in challenging settings to develop transferable life and work skills. We are most well-known for our use of gamelan music in prisons. We have partnered with 99 prisons, YOIs, immigration removal centres, mental-health hospitals, and community partners since 2003 to support 8000 participants, and there is a significant body of independent academic research on our work. To find out more, visit the rest of our website (www.good-vibrations.org.uk).

We are looking to recruit a part-time Grants and Trusts Fundraiser. This will initially be on a one-year contract, but we hope to make this a permanent position.

We can offer a great deal of flexibility in terms of where the post-holder works, and the hours they work to make up their 0.6 FTE contract. 

The Grants and Trusts Fundraiser will work with the Executive Director and management team to execute Good Vibrations’ strategy for trusts and statutory grants fundraising. The post-holder will take the lead on writing and developing funding bids to a range of grant-givers, research funders and other statutory donors, and will be able to oversee multiple bids simultaneously. He/she will build and maintain good relationships with local and regional funding bodies, trustees, staff and facilitators, and will ensure the effective management and monitoring of grant agreements.

To apply, candidates must email their CV, and a covering letter explaining how they meet the person specification to Good Vibrations’ Executive Director, Katy Haigh by Wednesday 13th March. Here is the job description. To submit your application, please email katy@good-vibrations.org.uk.

Applicants should keep Monday 25th March free to attend an interview in Central London (or by Skype) as we will be interviewing short-listed candidates that day. There will also be a written exercise. We will notify short-listed candidates with further details by Monday 18th March 2019.

To support Good Vibrations’ equal opportunities monitoring, please also complete this form and email it to jane@good-vibrations.org.uk so that it can be treated anonymously, and separate to your application.
