Local Trust is growing in ambition and delivery, and we are looking to fill roles with people who share our vision of empowered and resilient communities.

At Local Trust, we have £150m to invest in communities over the next decade, in places that need funding, support and encouragement. But we don’t decide how much gets spent, on what and when. Instead, residents decide how to use the money to meet local needs. Our funding approach means that every community tailors the funding around their own priorities. In coming together to think about solutions, our support structure also helps to build confidence, skills and capacity.

We are increasing capacity in our team because we are ramping up our activity and this role will play a pivotal role in developing new and innovative approaches to delivery that add value to our work. Reporting directly to the Director of programmes and resources, you’ll be responsible for identifying and showcasing innovation – taking place both inside and outside of Big Local. This is a new role within the programmes team and we are looking for a self-starter and hard worker, who can bring creativity and make things happens. 

This role will suit someone who likes variety. The work is fast paced and enormously rewarding. When you go and meet the communities we work with, you will see and hear things that are likely to move and inspire you. We hope that you will appreciate what a unique place Local Trust is. So don’t miss out on an opportunity to make your mark in what could be a career-defining role.
