Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Closing date: 05 Dec 2017

Location; Gateshead or London

Salary £25,000 (£29,000 including London weighting)

Traidcraft Exchange works to challenge injustice in trade and business practice, demonstrating and sharing expertise on how trade can work for the benefit of all, especially the vulnerable and exploited. It is an exciting time for Traidcraft Exchange, with a new strategy recently developed and a sense of excitement about what we can achieve in coming years. Having worked primarily in Kenya, Tanzania, Senegal, India and Bangladesh, we are looking to expand our geographical reach and to develop partnerships and programmes in new countries.

We are looking for a Programme Funding Officer with a strong interest in trade justice to join our Programme Funding Team. The Programme Funding Officer role will focus on the research, coordination and development of funding applications to statutory and non-statutory funding institutions. Supporting Traidcraft Exchange to secure large scale funding for its programme and policy work, you will have excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to liaise confidently and diplomatically with donors and colleagues both in the UK and overseas. You’ll have a proven ability to compile and effectively summarise large quantities of written information and be able to construct and review multi-year project budgets and donor budgets. As well as working to research new funding opportunities and build organisational knowledge of institutional funding sources through desk research, the role will also write and edit funding proposals to meet donor requirements, including project budgets and result frameworks.

The role can be based in Gateshead or London, and is a permanent, full-time role. As well as potential travel within the UK, you will also undertake overseas trips to the regional programmes when necessary to support the development of funding applications.

Traidcraft is like no other organisation. We aim to have fairly paid and motivated staff who contribute to the dynamic life of the organisation. People who work here are passionate. While it’s rewarding to have a job that really makes a difference, in addition to base salary and a generous pension (7.5% company contribution, minimum of 3% employee contribution), we offer flexible time / working patterns and as much fair trade tea and coffee as you can drink!
