Grants Manager, Chatsworth House Trust

The Chatsworth House Trust (CHT) has recently undertaken a strategic review of its fundraising activity and now wishes to appoint a Grants Manager to work within the Development Department.

The Development Department was established in September 2014 and is responsible for securing funds from corporate sponsors, trusts and foundations, public bodies and individuals. The department raises funds for CHT and for the Devonshire Educational Trust (DET).

Chatsworth House Trust is an independent charity dedicated to the long term preservation of Chatsworth House, the art collection, garden, woodlands and park for the benefit of the public. DET is a separate charity which provides diverse and accessible educational opportunities and activities throughout the Devonshire Group.

This is a key role in the department. You will manage and deliver a grant funding fundraising strategy and draft applications for funding with the support of the Director of Development.  You will be responsible for the oversight of project funding applications to both Trusts & Foundations and Public Bodies and will ensure effective stewardship of any successful grants received.

You will bring with you experience in grant fundraising for the voluntary sector – ideally in the heritage or museums sector, along with a proven track record of drafting meaningful, successful proposals to Trusts, Foundations and Statutory funders of up to six figures.

If this sounds like you and you are committed to our values, are highly organised and have a flexible work attitude – we would love to hear from you.

Working hours are Monday to Friday, 9am to 5.30pm, however, you are likely to be required to work evenings and weekends from time to time.  It is anticipated that due to the current Covid restrictions you will initially spend some time working from home with a view to returning to the office as we come out of the pandemic.
