The Sir Halley Stewart Trust is a registered charity (number 208491) that typically awards approximately £1,000,000 of funding per year to innovative research and development projects in the medical, religious and social fields. The focus of the Trust’s work is the prevention of human suffering and distress, both in the UK and overseas, with a view to enabling the projects it funds to become self-supporting.

We are now seeking an outstanding individual to join the Trust as our new part-time Grants Manager and second member of staff. Working closely with our Director and volunteer Trustees, we are looking for an individual with exceptional interpersonal skills, strong attention to detail, grant-making experience, financial competence and an affinity with our areas of charitable support.

The Grants Manager will lead on the Trust’s day-to-day grant-making activities and the administration of the Trust, and support the Director in the Trust’s wider operations. It is critical the appointee is a confident self-starter with exceptional attention to detail.

Candidates may come from a range of backgrounds, but should have experience of grant-making and working with Board members, and be able to demonstrate a commitment to the voluntary sector as well as empathy with the ethos of the Trust. First class written and verbal communication skills will be key, as will the ability to process complex information, financial acumen and excellent IT skills. The successful candidate will be highly organised and able to build relationships with people at all levels.

The post is a part-time, home-based position. The new Grants Manager would have the option to either work 3.5 full days per week, or split the equivalent hours across the week if they prefer.
