This is an exciting opportunity to join the Trust, which is committed to learning from, and sharing the achievements of, its grant holders and the impact of its funding programmes.

Previous experience of grant making is required for both roles and personal knowledge or experience of the Armed Forces would be an advantage. The successful candidates will have an interest in, and commitment to, the difference that charities can make.
