We are hiring! Connect Fund Manager vacancy

We have an exciting opportunity to join the Barrow Cadbury Trust as the new Connect Fund Manager.

This is a unique role, leading the Connect Fund and delivering its key aim of strengthening the social investment market to better meet the needs of charities and social enterprises. Barrow Cadbury Trust delivers the Connect Fund on behalf of our partners, Access – the Foundation for Social Investment.

The manager will be responsible for co-ordinating and managing all aspects of grant making for the Connect Fund, and will work closely with our partners at Access, to identify emerging challenges in the sector and continue to develop the Fund’s Learning Community.

The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of the social investment landscape in England as well as experience working with a wide array of charity and social enterprise infrastructure organisations and stakeholders.

The team has been working at home and is transitioning to a hybrid model of working – this is under review but there will be an expectation of 2-3 days a week office/field-based as a minimum. Please note our offices will be moving to Vauxhall some time in Autumn 2022.
