About the role

The Grants Officer is an important role, part of a small collaborative grants team delivering the Foundation’s five-year strategy to 2025 and looking towards the development of our new strategy. Our priorities are to widen our reach to organisations using the law in creative ways, especially those that are lived-experience-led, and to develop stronger relationships with our grantees to better support them and to learn more from what we fund. There are opportunities to help shape the job by leading on areas of particular interest within the grants portfolio.

This is an exciting time as we are strengthening and developing our team and processes to ensure we can meet the Foundation’s commitments to be an open, inclusive and transparent funder. So, there will be plenty of opportunity to get involved in how our work develops over the coming years.

About you

This could be the right opportunity for a range of potential candidates. Whatever your motivations, we would like to hear from you, particularly if you have experience of managing grants (either as a grants holder or grant maker), are a good communicator and relationship builder, a team player, are flexible, organised, and have a demonstrable commitment to our aims and values.

We particularly encourage people with lived experience of social welfare legal issues and where they intersect with structural racism and other forms of discrimination. However, there is no expectation for candidates to disclose details of personal experiences at any stage during this recruitment or during their work at the LEF.

We value, welcome and respect all the differences that make us who we are, including: age, cultural background, disability and mental health, ethnicity and race, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, neurodiversity and socioeconomic background.
