Grants Officer (Maternity Cover) at The Legal Education Foundation
The Legal Education Foundation is an independent grantmaking foundation distributing around £6million a year through our own grants and programmes, alongside participating in funding partnerships. Our vision is of a society that fosters the principles of justice and fairness, where people understand and use law to bring about positive change and to prevent harm and where public systems and structures uphold the rule of law. Our focus is on ‘the law of everyday life’ - including people’s rights in housing, employment, community care, immigration and welfare benefits.
The Grants Officer is an important role, part of a small collaborative grants team delivering the Foundation’s 5-year strategy to 2025 and the Justice Together initiative. Our priority is to develop stronger relationships with our grantees, which will enable us to better support them and to learn more from what we fund. There are opportunities to shape the job by leading on areas of particular interest within the grants portfolio.
