Job vacancy: Development Coordinator

Development Coordinator

Groundwork UK 

Starting salary £31,049

(Based in Birmingham)

Groundwork is the community charity with a green heart. Join a team that is changing places and lives across the UK.

Groundwork helps people build better, greener lives in the places that need it most.  Our work to support communities has never been needed more, which means we need to be doubly creative about finding the funds to resource it.

We are seeking to add to the bidding and development capacity of our Birmingham-based national team, to help us deliver greater benefit to communities across the UK.

As part of a small multi-disciplinary team, you will identify and respond to income generation opportunities that help us deliver our ambitious strategy to change places and change lives. An experienced and skilled bid writer, you will have a demonstrable track record in securing major grants and contracts in the areas of skills, employability, youth or community development.

We are seeking an individual who can quickly understand the breadth of our activity, can work with minimal supervision, and who is able to manage multiple work streams in a competitive, pressured but hugely rewarding environment.
