Grants Administrator

Are you someone with an understanding of funding applications? With some time to spare to support a local school? School funding is due to fall by over 8% in real terms over the next 3 years, yet we still need to provide the same continuing level of education and support. We are therefore looking for someone to help us source alternative sources of finance to support our annual budget. The ideal candidate should have some experience of writing bids for charitable grants both speculatively and for a specific purpose. In some cases it might mean working alongside other schools however most work will be focused on Costello.

Hours will vary depending on activity but should amount to no more than 5 or so a week. Reasonable travel expenses will be paid and the role can be undertaken on site, at home or a mix of both.
