Strategic Funding Executive

We have an exciting opportunity for a Strategic Funding Executive to join our Programme Team.

Scouts is an equal opportunity employer. We're committed to diversity and actively seeking applicants from a wide range of backgrounds, in particular, Black, Asian and ethnic minority communities.

Will you be our next Strategic Funding Executive?

Responsible to: Strategic Funding Manager

Department: Strategic Delivery (Programme)

Base Location: Gilwell Park, London or hybrid working options

Term: Permanent

Salary: £36,712 per annum, Band F, Level 3, inclusive of Outer London Weighting

Hours: 35 hours per week

Line Management Responsibility: None

We are a small, fun and welcoming team who work together to ensure that Scouting can continue to support young people to develop skills for life. As part of the Marketing and Fundraising Directorate you will be leading funding proposals, working with others across the organisation on projects for Early Years, developing volunteers and increasing diversity across the movement.  No two days are the same one day you could be spending time on concentrated bid writing, another developing a new proposal with a different team and the next accompanying funders to see Scouting in action.

There are a number of great parts to this role. The best part is that we create bespoke, co-created, collaborative projects drawing inspiration from across Scouting that support all young people to develop skills for life. The projects and work we fundraise for have a life changing impact on others. For example the launch of Squirrels, our early years scouting would not have happened without the money we brought in from various funders.
