About Cripplegate Foundation and Islington Giving
Our vision is of a society where everyone has the opportunity to live a rewarding and fulfilled life free from poverty and inequality. We aim to bring about change to improve the lives of Islington’s most disadvantaged by providing grants, working in partnership and advocating positive change. We make grants of £1.8m a year and are a pioneer of a new place-based giving movement.
Islington Giving now forms a significant part of the work of Cripplegate Foundation. It brings together a coalition of local, regional and national funders with residents, businesses and voluntary organisations to tackle stubborn issues of poverty and inequality. It has raised over £6m in nine years to invest in innovative programmes.
It’s an exciting time to join us!
The next few years promise to be pivotal in shaping our future. The organisation is at the forefront of grant making and has a voice at national level. There are plenty of opportunities for the new Director to make a real contribution, including:
- Developing new visions for the future
- Leading further the development of Islington Giving
- Building on our partnerships and collaborations
The new Director could come from a range of relevant backgrounds and may be someone who is ready to lead an organisation for the first time, or who already has experience of being a Director. They will need a strong track record of leading and managing, building relationships, complex cross-sector partnerships and fundraising or generating an income. The new Director will also need to demonstrate that they understand the issues arising from working in an inner city area and are passionate about working to effect change. They will also have excellent communications skills and be committed to diversity.
We value diversity, equality and inclusivity. Applications are welcomed from underrepresented backgrounds, including but not limited to gender, race, age, sexual orientation and religion.
