Are you an experienced and motivated senior leader who has a passion for improving lives across Cumbria?

At Cumbria Community Foundation, we connect people who care with causes that matter. We work with community organisations across the county and support them by awarding grants on behalf of our fundholders.

We are looking for a highly experienced leader to manage our Grants and Development teams and contribute to the continued growth of the Community Foundation. This important role is perfect for someone looking for a chance to use their skills to maximise their personal and social impact.

Challenges are multiplying for communities in Cumbria that have already faced inequality and deprivation for years. There is a growing need to advocate for more – and more targeted – support for grassroots, community-led investment. This is an exciting opportunity to improve the lives of local people in need by contributing to the philanthropic grant making capacity of the Community Foundation. If you have the drive to help us make an impact, we want to hear from you.

For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Andy Beeforth on 01900 825760.

The post is based at our offices in Dovenby near Cockermouth.
