Foundation Manager

The Foundation gives grants to organisations focused on providing education opportunities for young people in the emerging markets. A recent shift in emphasis means there's an expectation that the Foundation mandate will now evolve to support individuals and organisations who are trying to solve some of the most pressing sustainability issues affecting consumers in emerging markets, such as the prevalence of non-recyclable single-use plastics, poor gender diversity in management or a lack of clean drinking water.

This is a part-time, permanent role with a two day a week expectation. Most of the work will be from home, with occasional meetings held mostly in London.

Reporting into to the Foundation's Board of Trustees, the right candidate will have primary responsibility for the operation of the organisation, including the development and implementation of policies, grant-making procedures and administrative systems.

Relevant experience monitoring the success of diverse non-profit programmes and familiarity with UK charitable reporting is desired. As well as a background in sustainability, preferably within the consumer sector. Fundraising experience is not required.
