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.

Youth Participation and Grants Officer

We’re looking for an enthusiastic person to join our dynamic Grants Team and help deliver our grants programmes. The primary focus of the role will be to support Uniformed Organisations to run the JPF Achievement Award Scheme and  associated programmes within London and Essex.

The role will also require the post holder to develop membership of the Achievement Award Scheme, promoting  this amongst those Uniformed Organisations not currently part of the scheme, as well as identifying growth and expansion for those already participating within the scheme. The Grants Officer will also be responsible for promoting, assessing and managing other small grants and programmes, as well as attending a large number of prestigious events hosted by the Jack Petchey Foundation which celebrate the successes of young people.

Furthermore the post holder will be responsible for developing our Youth Participation strategy ensuring that the voices of young people are captured within all aspects of our work.
