We are looking for somebody to work in an exciting key role, a Projects Officer, who will help us develop and grow our organisation. Is that you?

"This is a great job, as part of a wonderful team, where everyone is passionate about making a positive difference to the county we love"

I am delighted that you are interested in joining the Gloucestershire Community Foundation (GCF).

GCF is part of a supportive and progressive Community Foundation network. Gloucestershire Community Foundation is one of 46 community foundations (CF's) across the UK and you could be part of our team. As the community foundation for the County of Gloucestershire, we are an independent charity but with the benefits of being part of the wider movement, connecting regularly with those who share in the work we do, throughout the UK and around the globe. You can read more about community foundations here.

With an endowment worth just over £7 million, we distribute around £300,000 a year in grants, helping thousands of disadvantaged people to fulfil their potential. Alongside our usual grantmaking, over the last 14 weeks we have also distributed more than £400,000 in emergency grants to over 100 charities, so we are growing rapidly and need your help.

The Projects Officer is responsible for the effective delivery of projects that support GCF’s three main functions, thereby helping to drive the foundation forward to its next level.

The role is fundamentally about supporting the day to day operations of GCF and projects across all functions, including PR and marketing, grantmaking, fund management, community engagement and oversight of our IT systems, working in a small, happy and friendly team.
