Job Title: Funding Development Worker

the possibility of extension into a wider permanent role.

Platform is looking for a freelance Funding Development Worker to strengthen and support its project portfolio by developing new funding sources for this work. This is an opportunity to have an important impact on the future development of a small, pioneering charity, working for social and environmental justice.

There are three main elements to this role-

• Helping develop a wider funding strategy.
• Supporting the development of new funding sources.
• Diversifying PLATFORM’s funding streams – possibly into academic, EU or educational funding

Do you have experience of running and developing projects with excellent communications & networking skills and the ability to formulate and implement a long-term vision?
