Director of Partnerships
Local Trust
London
£75,000

Local Trust was established in 2012 to deliver Big Local, a Big Lottery funded programme which committed £150m to 150 local areas in England.

Big Local was designed to be radically different from the outset. Built around a vision of empowered, resilient, dynamic, asset-rich, resident-led communities, rather than conventional top down, time-limited, project-led funding, the £1m awarded to each Big Local area can be spent over 10-15 years by local residents on the basis of their own plans and priorities.

In terms of scale, timescale and ethos, nothing like Big Local has ever existed. Its ambition extends well beyond simply providing grant money to enable activity to take place on the ground. We want Big Local to leave a wider legacy.

In its first five years, Local Trust has supported residents to form partnerships, develop and consult on plans and priorities and work with local organisations to deliver these plans. Increasingly, now, we are releasing funds to local communities to support delivery of an incredible range of locally-led initiative and ambition.

Reporting directly to the Chief Executive and with responsibility for the Research and Communications teams, the Director of Partnerships has primary responsibility for the delivery of Local Trust's key strategic objectives of ensuring that it is outward looking and partnership focused - prioritising the building of new collaborations and partnerships and supporting the team maintain existing ones; and Influential, connected and informed - contributing to, influencing and informing wider debates on the future of communities drawing on learning and insight from Big Local.

We are looking for a flexible, entrepreneurial leader with excellent communication skills, proven ability to engage, represent and negotiate at a strategic level and a constant willingness to challenge, reinvent and innovate in order to increase impact and effectiveness.

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience developing and creating value-adding partnerships, representing organisations at a strategic level, effectively communicating messages to a range of audiences and effectively managing and balancing multiple stakeholder relationships.

You will be joining a team of enthusiastic and supportive professionals, who care about their work. It's a great atmosphere as there is a genuine buzz and momentum about what we are doing. You will be visiting Big Local areas to hear first-hand from people about the extraordinary changes they are making with their communities. We are confident that these stories will inspire and this promises to be an exciting, varied and rewarding role.
