An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Salford CVS to support our grants and investments programme.

The post of Grants Administrator (Maternity Cover) is a part-time (30 hours per week) 12-month fixed-term contract. It is hoped that the successful applicant will overlap with the existing post holder, both before and after their maternity cover, to ensure effective handover.

The post-holder will provide administrative support for all aspects of the grants and investments lifecycle – including promotion of grants, eligibility checking of applications, preparation and support for grant panels, awarding of grants, monitoring progress, preparing reports etc.

Our chosen candidate will be a well organised administrator with excellent attention to detail. They will be able to communicate effectively with people from a wide range of backgrounds, from small community groups to large charities and public sector commissioners. The post-holder will be a strong team player who can also work well on an individual basis.

The post-holder will work closely with the whole staff team at Salford CVS, but will have most day-to-day contact with colleagues in the Grants, Finance and Development sub-teams. Line management will be undertaken by the Grants Manager. Task management and support will be provided by the Grants Manager and other project-specific managers as appropriate.

Full training will be provided to familiarise the post-holder with Salford CVS’ systems.
