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 looking for a Grants Administration Assistant

Do you have excellent administration skills, a highly organised approach to your work, and enjoy communicating with a wide variety of people?
If so, we’d love you to join our dynamic Grants Team.

About the role 

We’re looking for an enthusiastic person to join our Grants Team and help deliver our grant programmes. The primary focus of the role will be to support the Senior Grants Administrator with the day-to-day administration of the various grants programmes, but in particular the Achievement Award Scheme.

This is an exciting time to join the Foundation, as we celebrate our 21st Birthday this year and are in the second year of our three-year strategy, which seeks to ensure that even more young people across London and Essex are recognised for their achievements and supported to be the best that they can be.

About the person

You will be a team player who can demonstrate strong communication skills, initiative and the ability to be flexible, as you will be working in a fast paced, varied and diverse office.
