As Head of Grant Delivery you will take the lead on developing and delivering the Grant Delivery strategy in line with Family Fund’s mission, vision and strategy.

You will be responsible for developing and delivering grant making activities in partnership with Directors and other key stakeholders across the organisation. You will drive and shape the development of new grant schemes and their delivery, informed by the voice of families, to progress Family Fund objectives, as well as proactively developing and managing existing grant delivery to drive organisation performance in delivering current priorities. You will contribute to strategic development by providing ideas, guidance and challenge, using data gathered from existing and developing grant schemes.

You will provide leadership and guidance to Grant Delivery and Client Services Teams including effective direction and delegation. You will also lead on the design and implementation of new grant activities to be delivered by the Grant Delivery Team, working closely with the Safeguarding and Policy Manager, Grant Delivery Manager and other teams across the organisation.
