Grandparents Plus is a national charity based in Bethnal Green. We are looking for a Grant Applications Volunteer to join our advice team working with grandparents and other relatives who are raising children when their parents can’t do so.
The role will involve
- identifying sources of support for families in need
- speaking to families over the phone about their circumstances and needs
- completing and submitting grant applications
- processing awards and recording outcomes.
You will need to have an empathetic and friendly telephone manner and an understanding of the need for confidentiality. You must also be able to communicate clearly in writing and work independently (full training will be provided).
You will be based in our small, friendly and supportive advice team. We provide travel and lunch expenses. We would ask you to commit to working one day a week, for a period of at least three months. A DBS check will be required - Grandparents Plus will arrange and pay for this.
Applications should take the form of an email explaining why you believe you are suited to this role, with your CV attached. Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date: 17th March 2017.
If you have any questions about the role or need any further information, please phone Jo Raine on 020 8981 8001.
We value diversity at TPP and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
