Greenwich Hospital – Research and Grants Manager


We are looking to appoint a Research and Education Grants Manager, based in London with travel and home working (minimum 2 days a week in the office)


Research and Education Grants Manager, £45,000 – £50,000 per year (full-time), starting point dependent upon experience, and happy to discuss part-time working.

Greenwich Hospital (GH) has supported serving and former Royal Navy and Royal Marine personnel and their families for over 325 years.  Their wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do as we aim to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of those in need of support.

Founded in 1694, we are a unique Crown body.  Last year, we spent nearly £6m in grants and charitable activities in areas that include education, housing, mental and physical health, employability training and supporting acute needs.

We have a new grants strategy that seeks to draw together existing research to guide the current and future funding of charitable support, as well as the expansion of our proactive and preventative funding to support education and families.  This expanded remit means we have introduced a new role, Research and Education Grants Manager, as part of our charity team of four.
