About the role

Minstead Trust is a growing charity that provides training and support for people with learning disabilities to lead more independent and fulfilled lives. We run a number of social enterprises providing training and employment opportunities as well as a residential care home, day opportunities and support for people to live in their own home. We have an exciting opportunity to join our Development Team based near Lyndhurst, Hampshire.

As part of developing the range of services to the people we support, we are looking for someone to join our team to help us develop outline ideas into concrete proposals for which we are able to seek grant funding. Once successful in getting funding, your role will be to oversee the project from inception to delivery and ensure a smooth handover to the lead within the Trust. You will use project management techniques to ensure that the projects are well-managed, risks are assessed and are managed to time. You will develop systems to monitor progress and ensure that it meets the grant funding criteria, providing written and aural reports on what the project has achieved. 

The Charity Development Officer reports directly to the Director of Development. You will support them to achieve the vision of the organisation. You will play a key role in coordinating the development of those ideas, working closely with the relevant Service Managers, Fundraising, Finance and Facilities Teams.
