Funding Researcher

We are looking for a computer savvy individual with great organisational skills to help us to maintain the information we hold on grant making bodies and charitable trusts.

This information helps us to support charities across the Maldon District to identify funding streams that could support their work and is constantly changing with updated deadlines and priorities.

The role will involve reviewing the information we hold on funders, carrying out online research, making changes, gathering information on new funds and highlighting new deadlines to the team in the office who can then pass this onto the charities we support.

If desired the volunteer can progress to being more involved with the funding advice service for example carrying out funding searches or giving advice. Full training and support will be given.

This role can be for a few hours a week at the Maldon and District CVS offices in Heybridge at a time that suits you (within the office hours of Mon-Thurs 9am-3pm) or if preferred it could be carried out from home with support from the office.
