Work for us

Working for the Jack Petchey Foundation isn’t quite the same as just ‘having a job’.

The Jack Petchey Foundation is a youth-focused grant maker located near Canary Wharf in the heart of London’s Docklands. Young people are at the centre of everything we do, and our values underpin our day to day work. The work we do really does make a difference to young people’s lives across London and Essex.

We have a dedicated, friendly workforce and enjoy a light, modern office with a spacious garden, fully equipped kitchen and table football and table tennis facilities!

We are committed to ensuring our staff have a good work-life balance and offer all our employees a comprehensive package of benefits including pension scheme, life insurance, childcare vouchers, private healthcare insurance with reduced cost gym membership and a cycle to work scheme.

We are recruiting a West London Grants Officer

About the role 

We are looking for an enthusiastic person to join our dynamic Grants Team and help deliver our grant programmes. The focus of the role will be to support Schools and Youth Organisations in West London to run our Achievement Award Scheme and associated programmes.

The role will require the post holder to develop membership of the Achievement Award Scheme, promoting this to schools and youth organisations that are not currently part of the scheme, as well as identifying growth and expansion for those already on the scheme. The Grants Officer will also be responsible for promoting, assessing and managing other small grants and programmes, as well as representing the Foundation at a large number of prestigious events where we celebrate young people’s achievements.

About the person

You will be a team player who can demonstrate a close alignment with Jack Petchey Foundation values, strong communication and organisational skills and the ability to think creatively and analytically.

You will need to be flexible and be able to work in a fast paced, varied and diverse office.
